"Episode In Argyle, Parts I & II" is, as the title suggests, two back-to-back takes. You'll hear the end of the first take at the 5:22 mark, when we break out The Art Chord. The Art Chord is our musical "uncle." When played, it means any given player is spent, has given up, has nothing more to offer, is bowing out, etc. So, after The Art Chord was signaled we just started bashing around, you know, before wrapping everything up and, inadvertently, we started a new take. Happens all the time, actually. The Art Chord reappears at the very end of the track, too, and also signals the conclusion of the nearly 17-minute title track, "Gravitas #68 -3," chiming in at 16:36 just prior to going black. It's just a little two note sliding blues thing. We left them in the mixes this time just to draw attention to the gravity of the situation. 32 minutes. Herb Out.

Oh yeah... to stay in good graces with Bandcamp (nice people, good product) we're now offering 99¢ full album downloads through their players. If offering the high quality stuff for sale (we upload FLAC to Bandcamp) makes the whole engine run smoother, we're OK with that.
