Another Brown World was recorded as part of the 2013 RPM Challenge, in which artists write and record a full length album of new material in the month of February. More info can be found here:

On top of the time restrictions, I added a couple of other operating principles. I drew my inspiration from Brian Eno's classic "Another Green World" and decided that the album would be half vocal and half instrumental, it would be ambient yet rhythmic, and that I would avoid using any software or MIDI instruments.

Track Name: Fox on the Trot
There's twenty eight days in February
And I got to write ten songs
I've got to get it done
I've got to get it on
Track Name: Song for the Desert Pupfish
Everybody here is happy
Everybody here gets their wish
Everybody here is swimming
And everybody here's a big fish

Some fishes swim down river
Some fishes swim to the sea
But we think that the ocean
Is deep and dark and mean


Some fishes swim the Colorado
Some fishes spawn upstream
But we like our pond 'cause it's little
And under the old palm tree

Track Name: I've Been Healed (with the Through & Through Gospel Review)
I jumped off a roof but I've been healed
I walked through fire but I've been healed
Fell off a bike but I've been healed
I've been healed


Spot the dog says I've been healed
The little red rooster says I've been healed
The brave little toaster says I've been healed
I've been healed

From pain and fever I've been healed
From coughing and wheezing I've been healed
From sniffling and sneezing I've been healed
I've been healed

From snakes and spiders I've been healed
From sharks and piranhas I've been healed
From big green iguanas I've been healed
I've been healed!
