A while back listeners of the podcast got a preview of releases to come - of which one track was from a live set by Polygon Ring.
After convincing the man that it was worthy of a seperate release, this 16 track album is the result.
Taking the basic live set as a starting point, the album has evolved into an almost entirely new entity. With a serious Boards of Canada edge appearing on some of the tracks (northwest showers being a true example of Boards style melodica and relatex to name a couple) there are refreshing tracks like 'a most unusual camera' which has one of the most additive arpeggios of late.
Watch out for a remix of a track from our very own Sektor - 'Loki' (not to forget that Sektor has two albums out on itunes via Kahvi commercial which are well worth a download)
Additional credits for this release: Mastering by Christopher Leary at Melograf Mastering, except track 10 mastered by Twerk at Audible Oddities and cover artwork by Alex Varanese.
I agree with nightmorph and Rags. This is a pro quality release. I'm surprised it doesn't have more ratings on here.

I finally got a chance to listen to this release. It's frickin' amazing! A sci-fi odyssey that stretches your mind and takes you places you haven't seen. I'll do a more thorough review later, but for now, I'll just thank the artist for making it, and Kahvi for putting it out. This is good stuff; five stars.

Thanks, Rags. Appreciated.

I probably could but that is not the main point here :-) This is an excellent release by any means.

NewSkool indeed, Rags. Three instances of the engine-only version, if I remember correctly. It's a pretty recognizable ensemble. There's another track on the album featuring it, I'm sure you'll guess which one correctly. ;)

Perelman's Office just made my day, I just picked this one randomly and got an instant smile on my face. Is that newschool.ens in there, right? :-)

The .ogg version will not play back properly on my computer. Windows Media Player with .ogg codecs won't play them, and VLC won't play them either. I managed to get them playing in Audacity though. Great songs, but they need to be re encoded.
