so mixing is about 95% done. it's sounding amazing at the moment; it's astonishing what one can learn doing this on one's own. I need to make a few more tweaks to the sound but it's looking like the record may drop next week or the week after. that's what I'm hoping, anyway.
Spire is coming together as well (however slowly); it'll be out after the album. currently, it's shaping up to include three alternate mixes of "spire", one of "antimonument", and one of "sunset and destroyer". I don't want to say any more yet because the details are really sketchy at the moment.
