All 9 songs are new, written for the album with the melodies spilling into one another.
The album is about the absence of God not being neutral but negative, and the devil of practical hum-drum curses who I have named Cthuwho?. Cthuwho? is the invisible force behind all lawsuits, stolen PIN codes, bedbug infestations, Comcast take-over bids, overdue rent complications and so much more. Cthuwho is part of the negative opposition that reminds me the universe isn't neutral.
The album is also about James Bond.
I really had a lot to say about James Bond.
There are all kinds of references to the various media that dominated my summer so feel free to dig around the lyrics and find whatever meanings you can.
I'd wanted to sell the album for 4 bucks, the price of the comic book, so that 1 purchase of my album = my 1 purchase of a comic book. But for legal reasons I don't think I can put the whole thing up for sale. However, if you're feeling generous feel free to buy one of the singles, any finances sent my way may or may not be spent on comic books.
I can't say how excited I am to share this with you, I'd love to hear any responses, questions etc you may have. Otherwise enjoy.
