Spend as little or as many credits as you like for this. It's just robot parts floating in space around the churning unmarked galaxy. Lost radio transmissions from mecha pilots and freighter convoys shot down over warring colonies. All of which have been assembled and remixed by Mangadrive into excerpts of experiments towards the construction of a new weapon that is charging somewhere in the distance...

...until the next transmission.

Godspeed, pilot.

IRL commentary:

This release is a bit of a detour and wasn't even really planned. It's a spontaneous lot of tracks that would otherwise be lost in transition. In most cases artists should be brandishing their best material, but in the pursuit of this you always have rough sketches and sometimes
good ideas. On the subject of an album that you really want deeply to come to some sort of concept, not everything is going to belong. So this really isn't B-sides, but it's not really the "album" I've been hiding in the shadows either. My sound is changing and there's subtle hints
of what's to come in Dreamachine. A lot of bands do "behind the scenes" and write blogs explaining their processes and what not. I don't think anyone would care about that enough from this project, but consider these 10 tracks exactly that. A glimpse into the folder that's
marked "bonus" and hear what otherwise would end up unheard. So take it with a grain of salt, enjoy and get that high score up.
