Our latest project is nearly finished. Possibly one more track, and some minor tweaking. Then I'll be taking a break for a couple of weeks (from composing, anyway), before returning with Summer Theologica.
Our previous release was Winter Collection.

2. City of Dreams
3. City of Shadows
4. City of Fire
Side B - Fashionable Nonsense

7. Unsure Thing
Side C - Life On Hold
8. Waiting Game
9. Empty Rooms
10. Lost Chances
Side D - Nonsensical Fashions
11. Crushed Velvet Underground
12. Deaf Leopardskin
13. Deep Mauve
Disk 2 Side A - Revolutionary Leaflets Everywhere
2. Facts & Fallacies
3. Certainty Principle
Disk 2 Side B - Pet Crematorium (in production)
4. Hamster Love
Update: Fixed so you can actually download and listen to stuff.
Update 2: New mix of Bioarrhythmia and a much better title for track #6.
Update 3: I knew we'd used that beat before. It was in one verse of Scorpion Sunday, a track dropped from the released (short) version of Return of the Return of the Electric Ant. From, like 200mumble.
Update 4: And yes, that's a nod to Stir-Fried Grasshopper.
Update 5: Bumped to highlight Fashionable Nonsense to anyone who missed it and to include a tweaked version of Signs & Portents (the so-called "doo doo" mix, for reasons that would be apparent if you had the two to compare side-by-side...) Hope to get sides C & D up by the end of the week, and then the bonus tracks the following week. Next month we'll be working on part three of our 10th anniversary series: Summer Theologica.

Update 7: Didn't go in to work today, still trying to shake off my cold. I took a couple of hours out from my busy schedule of sleeping and sniffling to put up side C - Life On Hold. Make of that what you will.
Update 8: It occurs to me that at some point I'll need to produce an album with Axiolotl. Now, with the EAO I have a lot of leeway, because they're an eclectic electronica/dance/jazz/pop group who enthusastically raid whatever musical motifs they come across. But Axiolotl are a classically-trained Japanese/Jewish fusion band, and their sound is not so much eclectic as unique. This may take some doing.
Update 9: Oops, forgot a track. Empty Rooms up now.
Update 10: Some minor tweaks and Crushed Velvet Underground uploaded.
Update 11: Deaf Leopardskin is up. That leaves just Deep Mauve and the extras (which are remixes of existing tracks).
Update 12: More stuffs!
