Kumquat : working on a second album
Category : music

Update (7/24/12) :

The album is now recorded since last june. You can listen to a few preliminary excerpts here (better heard through headphones) :

We still need pre-orders to finish up the production. So if you like what you here, consider purchasing the disc this summer. It’ll be less expensive and you will get it sooner : http://www.indiegogo.com/kumquat.

This is some more recent, unreleased music. Some of it has been played live many times already, some of it hasn’t yet, and some will never… It includes some of the ideas for our second album, that we had the opportunity to work on during our early summer residency at Le Tamanoir.

Feel free to give some feedback.
