After a series of DIY vehicle tune-ups, Halloween celebrations, multiple overtime weeks at work, an art exhibition, and just recently a cabin getaway with the love of my life, the energies now feel right to roll up my sleeves and finalize the album. I had envisioned a late September release but as mentioned above, life is a roller coaster and sometimes you have to relinquish control and throw your hands up to just ride the ride, embracing the twists and turns as they arrive.

With calmer happenings focus can be forged while being careful not to inspire poor posture or aggravate the carpel tunnel by clickity-clicking everything into place as the music is now 100% complete. But considering the clusterfuck holidays known as Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner I am now thinking of a New Years debut as highly probable. I am, however, still undecided on the Kickstarter project to back the album, if it seems I can squeeze the crafting of backer packages into the schedule then that’ll be great.

Alongside new ND material there is new Robot 7 material coalescing as collaborative talks and temporal sketches emerge. Coincidentally, DJ Mac’s Post-Alternative Visions compilation #4 is just around the corner with returning contributors and new. The ND track chosen for our submission is unique to our catalogue as an unreleased post-punk-rock inspired tune I hope will find a home among others. The compilation is due for a mid-December release.

Till next time here, into the shadows I crawl back again.

Then:

Since our last post in July we’ve had a few releases. There were three songs for three different compilations and only one didn’t make the cut. “As The Worms Begin To Dig” was the one that didn’t make it for Future Disorder Records, an IDM/experimental/noise net label, and their “Three Years Compilation”. Their release is quite amazing with some splendid talent. For anyone who want’s to check it out, go HERE.

The two other songs “Try To Wake Up” and “Vivi Vista” were, respectively, sent to and accepted by two entities we’ve had the pleasure of releasing with before, PegasiaMusic and DJ Mac of WoodyRadio.
Pegasia released their compilation “Amorphia” on October 17th. Great production, great people.

Now:
Today sees the release of DJ Mac’s Post-Alternative Vision 2: Uniting The Underground. Again, independent, creative, quality tunes from independent, creative, quality human beings. Download it, share it, buy it, check it, support it, and, by all means, listen to it.

As organic as we’ve been in the past, with how we approach the music collaboratively, we are aiming to weed-out the over-thinking and sedimentation that tends to grow during our biennial collaborative cycle. So far I think it’s working out smoothly to our expectations. There’s some pretty gnarly stuff coming alongside some of our most mind-bending tracks yet. Instead of hording them all up to release at once we aim to share the songs as soon as they are completed via our SoundCloud page and various compilations, as we did with the three above mentioned songs. Once we feel we have all we want completed we shall compile them as an pay-what-you-want album on our Bandcamp. There may also be a limited run, hand-made CD-R art package offer further down the road.

Down the road:
So as we continue with our gravity obeying lives we hope to have a more steady stream of consciousness from the Dreamtime nexus and to share the sides of it we are still discovering. One of those sides is literature, and in light of NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo this month I am pushing myself to write, per day, at least 140 characters worth of either random poetic text or pieces towards a coherent whole, in attempts to progress my skill as story teller and song writer. Some will be shared here to put this space to more use, and some may not. But I will write, type and scribble not for perfection but for progress. Because I love commas, I do, I do, I do.

Peace,

Post Alternative Visions vol.1

DJ Mac of WoodyRadio has been working closely with us and the other bands included to produce volume 1 of “Post Alternative Visions”.

“These bands, artists and songs represent respect for and musical influences of past alternative genres with an original updated sound and poignant lyrics. Ranging from the dark, post-punk influenced melodies of Hyena Motorcade, Hearts Fail, The Secret Post, The Seraphim Rising, Their Planes Will Block Out The Sun, Kill the Reflection, IceChrystalls, to the cross-genre brilliance of Carved Lies, Hilliat Fields, 13 Monsters, and Stigmata, to the electronic creativity of Neuron Dreamtime, Vodsel, Preacherz of the Savage Truth, and Zeitfaktor, this group of creative bands offer originality and nonconformity. Paying homage to the past allows you to acknowledge where you’ve been while going somewhere new. This international collaboration from 15 independent bands and one internet radio DJ will be delivered for no charge using Bandcamp.”

Available November 1st, 2013 on Bandcamp at: http://postalternativevisions.bandcamp.com/
