New album: Expedition to PL21-13

Recommended Posts

A couple years ago, I released Zest Quest, an original album about fruit planets. Since then, I’ve decided to make more music set in the same universe, and I just released number 2!

 

Expedition to PL21-13

 

It contains a mishmash of retro sounds with an emphasis on things that sounded purple to me, paired with a story about unpaid interns searching a swampy alien planet for a robot sent by their ancestors hundreds of years ago. If you’re into flavor text, there's a full description on Bandcamp, and the album download comes with a 5-page PDF of log entries. :<

 

The original concept for the album had no narrative context...but it turned out that giving it a story and connecting it to Zest Quest unleashed a rush of motivation. Now I’m looking forward to all the possibilities for fleshing out this universe. Hope you enjoy!

Whoa! Loving this, and getting inspired by your mixing abilities. I remember listening to the Essence of Lime album when it came out. It's great to hear original tracks from you!

Thank you! It’s always interesting to hear what people’s favorites are. Swamp Luminescence came from a 2013 WIP that I pulled out of storage and reworked/finished. It was one of the key tracks when I was originally deciding on a tone for the album. Replumification, on the other hand, wasn’t started until everything else was finished. So you’ve kind of got the bookends there.

I appreciate the compliment on the mixing. I’ve always seen it as my weak point, so I try my best to keep improving!
