Do Not Tip Or Rock, now on Bandcamp

I'm continuing the process of posting my old albums up on Bandcamp, at http://andyrivkin.bandcamp.com. The latest to go up is 2005's Do Not Tip Or Rock, featuring Science Diet-era favorite "Crunchy Granola Girl", the geek rock classic "OBAFGKM", the Mexican tinged "Casa De Nancy", and Jen's songwriting and singing debut "Song For Nicholas".

Also available are 2003's In-Jokes With Myself and 2000's The Red Album, along with 2011's Local Technique EP.

I'd feel bad for shilling this stuff, but since you can name your
price (including "free") I feel it's less unseemly. ;)

(Good Luck With The) Woman Of Your Dreams

After mostly using this site for cover songs for a while, I figured I'd put up an original or two. To be precise, two versions of the same original: (Good Luck With The) Woman Of Your Dreams. The song was written around 2000 but never quite finished until I took it up a month or two ago. I tried to get into the same mindset I might have had back then, including a reference that would have been a little dated even at the time.

I recorded the acoustic version in December, then I forgot about it and recorded a version tonight with the Gedankenband. So here's both:

Not sure if this one will make it onto the next album or not, but I suppose time will tell....
