20:40 - Karlabos Well yeah, that kinda works. It gets a little hard to type though, but it's ok
20:28 - !J.O.O.E.! Maybe find a big hardcover book or something like that to put it on.
20:27 - Karlabos Sounds nice. Yeah because of the heat I can't use laptop on my lap like it was supposed to.. Unfortunately it's the only position where yo don't get a sore arm/neck/whatever when using
20:24 - !J.O.O.E.! Lel maybe. I don't like regular laptops personally as they're heavy and get hot easily. I own a little one that weighs less than a kilo and doesn't emit heat. Great for long journeys as the battery lasts for ages.
20:22 - Karlabos Wait, this means I'm gonna have to buy a new one?
20:22 - Maratha Not yet a review of new Bölzer in the upper section?
20:15 - !J.O.O.E.! Don't use a laptop covered in snakes and glass?
Slough Feg have just revealed basically everything about their new album that will follow The Animal Spirits. It is called Digital Resistance and you get to hear its title track today. The album is set for release in North America on February 18th, 2014 and will see Slough Feg on the road with a few West Coast shows scheduled in March. The band is hoping to do a short tour of Europe in May/June. Enjoy the new song. You know you want to.
When asked if the new album was a concept album, vocalist Mike Scalzi explained that Digital Resistance is a concept album in the sense that The Beatles Sgt. Pepper is a concept album: "It has somewhat of a consistent lyrical theme that runs through several of the songs, but not every song— it is not a concept album in the sense that our Traveller album is."

Scalzi discusses the cover art: "The artwork for this album was, as usual, a bit of a struggle. I had no idea how to represent an album called Digital Resistance. We finally decided that we wanted the background of Kiss' Destroyer album (a city in ruins), but instead of a rendering of our band in the forefront, I wanted the space-dog (Vargr) from Traveller. But we'd already used him, so I thought about wolves. I thought maybe a symbol (involving a wolf) representing the birth of a civilization might be appropriate. And that's what we did — we put Romulus and Remus, the two mythological children who founded Rome, and were raised by a wolf, in front of this destroyed civilization. What does it have to do with Digital Resistance? Modern primitivism? An atavistic civilization? Nothing whatsoever? Well, I suppose only time will tell."
