* Opening a series of releases planned for 2014, we’ve just released a new 15 minute track called Trident Mountain Sky, a piece recorded during the early (Feb 2009) sessions for Gravity’s Dirty Work but not used on the album. Originally planned as a Christmas single, we felt it was more timeless. But it’s still available for free, as planned, at
