Today is that most special of days. Roxie - aka The Sneefler - is seven. Good to see Canada has finally declared her birthday a national holiday.

To celebrate, here's another sneak preview of the next connect_icut album, Let's Hear it for the Vague Blur. The track in the player below is called "The Roxie Music". The title was suggested by perpetual wiseacre Jesse Simon. The image above should appear on the album artwork, which I'm hoping Jesse will design.

The song itself was made heavily under the influence of Haswell and Hecker's Blackest Ever Black. Basically, I used an application called HighC to turn cartoons of The Sneefler into sound loops, then ran the results through my Max patch. The results were suitably bonkers.

Let's Hear it for the Vague Blur should be available as a free MP3 download, some time in the next 12 months. Unless anyone wants to step up and do a proper release.
