VIII (recorded during December 2012)

Broken links and missing artwork now restored. Sorry, but I assumed my hosting supported foreign characters in filenames. Don't worry, the ID3 tags will display the correct title!

Our eight album is simple titled VIII. Mostly Spanish titles, with a few other languages thrown in for good measure. I have no idea who the girl on the cover is, but I'm sure she is a really nice and cool young lady and would love being our front cover star.

Third album in three months. Take that, Huskers!

Yes, this album is only available in ALAC. I did this for a couple of reasons, mainly because uploading two versions of each song was becoming a bit of a pain. Also, while you can play ALAC files in most (non-Itunes) media players, you cannot play FLAC files in iTunes. Also, if you really want an mp3 copy (or a FLAC copy) there are many free sound converters out there. Lastly, I like my music lossless. If you truly think this is a bad idea, you can always email me and I'll reconsider this move for future albums.

p.s. – I'll go out on a limb and say that entspannungsübungen is my best song ever.
