Don't have the time to listen to it but it's very nice that you give the source code. That's how music should be shared.

EDIT: Ok, I couldn't get the site to work with my privacy conscious setup. I suggest using less cross-site requests.

Listened to the whole album. Thought it was great! You all sounded especially sharp on Oh Liar! He He, that's a little musical humor for you. ;)

Thank you for your music, I just listened to a few tunes ("Where is my car" is in my head right now... very catchy!)

Also, the videos are very creative, how did you do the scrolling effect in "you fill my soul"? And, I'm afraid I won't like the answer, but do you do the videos with open software too?

Hi,

For our videos and our music we don’t use proprietary software.
In particular, for our videos, we use kdenlive.

The scrolling effects in "you fill my soul" is made with a kdenlive transitions.

Just my 2c. Ignore if you want.
Exactly. Just put a raw HTML5 <audio> tag on the site.

Good to know that Linux is in such good state in the video producing area. I knew about the good results in audio, but I thought video was not still there. Cool. :D

Quite enjoyed these. They have a very '60s sort of sound.
