a season with the brain police (recorded 29 May 2016 — 16 June 2016)

Our fourteenth album overall, and sixth album of new material.

This is a short one. A very short one. It's the shortest XR1300 album yet (even shorter than the Remixed And Remade EP) and the shortest overall release I've done since 2007's self-titled Rural Citizens Band album. Woah... This is intentional, but I plan to turn some of these songs into extended ambient versions under the Abandoned Shorelines moniker.

After creating a double disc, 142 minute monster, I wanted to scale things back. Way back. I might never do this again, so if this appeals to you, be sure to pay attention to this album. It's also the first album I've done under the XR1300 moniker without "explicit" content. I didn't censor myself any, but some suggestive material remains. The next album will more than make up for it.
