Music To Fly Spaceships By

It may seem a bit ambitious (it does to us, anyway), but we are trying to complete 13 tracks for an album in the month of June.  Luckily, we had several scrap parts left over from an earlier project for us to cannibalize, and now it seems like our work is already about one-third done.

The concept behind this album - Music To Fly Spaceships By - is kind of pretty stupid if you think about it. For some reason, I have no idea where it comes from, one of us always assumed that aliens that visit Earth from across the cosmos or dimensions or time or whatever listen to electronica house music at a loud but not unreasonable volume as they pilot their craft around. Maybe it helps keep them mellow and cuts down on the cabin fever? Of course, we now realize that if they are from an advanced society, they're probably listening to Babymetal. But that would be hard to build a concept album around. The copyright concerns alone seem to make the whole thing untenable.

 We have to go now. Our home planet needs us.

Anyway, here's a song that we are pretty sure we're done tinkering with, so get your club drugs and glow sticks and crank it up, why not?
