Dog poo!Here's another new song by Richard with the nobel title "Dog poo". All the instruments are played by Mr. Kapp including claps, flips and a nice melodica thingy that he bought in Istanbul. He also recorded 10 different vocal layers for a nice choir at the end. :) Hope you like it!
I don't fucking care!Here's a new song Richard wrote called "I don't fucking care". :) He composed and recorded this on a single day. He also played all instruments except the viola (played by the wonderful Bernadette Ott). Hope you like it. It's a FREE download, too.
