Starpower – Sonic Youth Cover

February 9th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

I dont know why I never thought to cover a Sonic Youth song, seeing as they have probably been most influential on me. I first heard them when I was 13-14 (ok, so I dont recall exactly the first moment as I should) and it pretty much changed my idea of music completely. So here’s a cover of a song from one of my favorite albums of theirs. Also, I thought I would get like 4 or 5 covers done tonight but only got this one done. Oh well.

What A Day For A Daydream

February 9th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

So I’m wondering, is it so wrong to want to do nothing at all? I just want to make music and that is about it. I have no real desire to do anything else. I do other things, but I have most desire just to create things….I guess I do that. I dont know what I’m talking about right now.

Song To The Siren – Tim Buckley Cover

January 14th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

This one’s been covered many a time, I know, but is a great song. I feel like I’ve heard a few other covers and I was trying to cover them as well as Tim’s, and as a result, I’m not sure if I have the voice to carry it, but hey, it’s always worth a try.

Strike a Pose

January 14th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

It’s freezing outside. Usually that means your brain functions better, for mine it’s still stagnent. I need to work on that. I feel like I’m constantly wasting time but I still cant motivate myself to work on stuff 24/7, but if you have it in you, I feel like it should be expelled, so I must get to it.

Edible Flowers – the Finn Brothers Cover

January 8th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

I recorded this late last night and I was trying to be quiet as to not wake anyone up, so I turned up the reverb and EQ as a result, so it sounds like, well this. :)

Hours of Entertainment

January 8th, 2009 by Synthia Sensate

I really need to get off that darn Twitter account and focus more on this site! I have been out of town for the holidays and have not recorded any new covers…but it’s a new year, it’s time for some new covers. This time a few months ago I had anticipated having at least a hundred covers…come on now…

Magic – Ladyhawke Cover

November 24th, 2008 by Synthia Sensate

I always have a warm spot in my heart for NZ musicians, and I was surprized to discover this pop sensation is from there. It’s a pretty brilliant combination of old and new pop. And this song in particular I love! If you like this cover and haven’t heard the original, well you should go listen to the original because it’s better. :)

Accidental Comments Deleted

November 24th, 2008 by Synthia Sensate

I dont get alot of comments on this blog, but when I do it really makes my day. That being said I do get alot of spam comments that I have to ‘approve’ and as a result, I ended up deleting 3 different people’s comments when trying to delete the other 71 spam comments! :( So if you wrote me and dont see it, it probably accidently got deleted and I’m sorry because I really appreciate your feedback!

Keeping Warm Is Hard To Do

November 19th, 2008 by Synthia Sensate

Winter is upon us and I feel now is the time when I must get things done before hibernation. Collect the nuts and berries, that sort of thing.
