This week’s theme: Travel Tunes

Act 1:

John woke up that morning feeling what he considered to be fine. His week was long, so it seemed essential to savor every second of his passing weekend. He began his morning routine by sitting down at his computer. No new e-mails. No new Friend Requests. No responses to any of his posts. It was hours later when he finally realized that he had spent his entire day pacing back and forth within the confines of his 200 square foot apartment.

Phlogiston – Nectar “Double EP” out

31New EP out, but only in FLAC format on Pause.

Nectar is essentially two EPs in one. Croqel Adventure is the semi-sequel to Croqel – continuing the tradition of short, fun and pure NES tunes. Heat takes you back to an 80s vision of the future; you’re given a tour through a vast dystopian city where high tech low life roam the streets, and the differences between man and machine have been washed out.
