I've managed to kind of accidentally make a new album. Which is nice, since I haven't released anything substantial in years.

It's only 35 minutes long, it's full of fat drones and mangled steel tongue drum, drowned in glitches, reverb and delay, everything has been patched together somewhat randomly with even more randomness, yet it feels, I don't know, wholesome?

Maybe I'll hate it tomorrow. Not sure when I'll release it. For now, here's the cover art.

Agonizing over whether I should mix all tracks to make them fade into each other, or keep them all separated by silence.

A full mix would make sense, we're clearly in ambient territory with long drones, and silences feel like interruptions. It would in fact be the same process I followed to make the tracks, but at a higher level.

The only reason I wouldn't do this is that I never did it before, and it may be harder than I think, but it's in fact one more reason to do it, right?

@ice i feel like a full mix is the nicer experience, and if you have the energy and time to do it, it's probably worth
some people might like to have the individual tracks for their playlists though, so offering the unmixed tracks as an alternate download could be cool if it's not too much hassle

@gaeel That's a good idea, thanks :) I could host a non-mixed version on my website and keep the "main" mixed version on Bandcamp.
