Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.
You can download the music for free - but I'm trying to get enough money to subsidise future recordings, so all contributions are appreciated. If you haven't any money, then please help yourself; just make sure you spread the word. The album download includes the short films "Homunculus at Staups Mill", "A Hole in the Air" and "Is This What You Want?"
