April 30: This "album is almost done" thing is getting as old for me as it is for you, but really, truly, it's almost done. I've got the order, and the spacing between the songs, and final mixes of most of the tunes, and all that remains is a bit more obsessive listening and the cover art. There will be a CD release show, believe it or not; more about that later. For now, come see me at Amazing Things this Thursday.
