I'm pleased to announce the release of Perihelion, the new digital-only album available now for free (pay what you want) over at Bandcamp.

The companion piece to last year's Aphelion, it was recorded with long-time collaborator Sam Byrd back in December 2014 and originally set aside for a potential 2-LP vinyl project. While I am hoping to put some newer recordings out on vinyl later this year, these tracks are just too good to leave "in the can."

We are quite proud of this music and hope you dig it as well!
