Originally intended as the follow-up to 'Sylph' and 20 years after its originally intended release date, 'The Greyest Day' will be available on November 25, 2014. We would like to thank Matt Akery, Paolo Licciardi, Philip Keller, Graham Dickey, Brian Hasselbeck and our spouses for their tremendous work, performances, help and/or support with this project. More details to follow...
Two (relatively) new tracks, Haunt and Our Mingled Wires—both of which were recorded for 2010 short film soundtracks—are available for streaming/listening on the Myspace player.
A new interview, including some information on upcoming projects, is available online courtesy of Brax the Alien Rocker. Meanwhile, Writ on Water is busy in studio (as noted in the interview) while activities related to live performance have been temporarily placed on hold.
In celebration of Midsummer, as well as having reached 10,000 plays on our Myspace page (thank you for listening), we have uploaded an extended mix of A Midsummer Wish to the Myspace playlist. We are continuing rehearsals in preparation for some live appearances later this year, but there isn’t much more to report at this time. Check back for more information in the coming months.
We are currently in the process of shaking off many layers of dust and have begun rehearsing for performances later this year. More information on the new lineup and live dates will be forthcoming. We might also direct you to a very nice review of the 2008 releases that has just appeared among the Terrascope Rumbles and can be read here. Finally, we have rearranged our Links page a bit to add various interviews/features, some of which are also referenced below.
