Album news…

The second Chameleon Circuit album, Still Got Legs, is currently available for pre-order here. You can also pre-order a Chameleon Circuit t-shirt here. Both will ship on July 12th. (Additionally, you can order a set of Still Got Legs themed Sopio cards here.)

You can take a look at the awesome Still Got Legs album art here on Alex’s blog. Charlie wrote about the album on his blog here. Alex has some interesting insights on the Still Got Legs songs he wrote in this video. And you can go here to watch some behind-the-scenes videos of the album production.

In anticipation of the album release, Chameleon Circuit held two Still Got Legs listening parties at Red Bull Studios, where attendees could listen to the album before its release. Afterwards, the band members took questions from the audience. (You can watch a recording of the question and answer session from the June 4th listening party here (part one) and here (part two).) They even had a dalek and a TARDIS there! Sam Caplet has some fantastic photos from the event here.

Podcast/website updates…

Summer vacation has begun for me and I’m going to be out of town for several weeks with little or no internet access. This will unfortunately delay the releases of the next Trocklafane Podcast episode as well as the news posts. However, the next few episodes are currently in production and I plan to finish and release them as soon as I return. (As well as taking care of some much-needed website updates and housekeeping.) Hopefully you guys won’t miss me too much!

The Trocklafane Podcast episode 7

21 May

So, you probably just watched the latest episode of Doctor Who, and you’ve come here looking for opinions on it. If so, I’m sorry – you won’t find them here. Instead, in this episode, we’re taking a step back in time (because Doctor Who is  a show about time travel, so we can do that) to listen to some crazy ramblings recorded about a month ago. Plus there are lots of great songs!

In this episode, I…
…was suffering from a cold (so if I sound particularly inarticulate and/or hoarse, that’s why)
…quite enjoyed A Christmas Carol
…wish I could have gone to Gallifrey
…play songs in memory of Nicholas Courtney and Elisabeth Sladen
…look forward to new Doctor Who episodes

Songs:
“Gallifreyan History 101,” by Chameleon Circuit
“Abigail’s Song,” by Murray Gold
“Five Rounds Rapid (The Bridadier’s Song),” by UKISOCIETY on YouTube

What you can expect from The Trocklafane Podcast during series 6:

27 Apr

More frequent podcast episodes – I plan on doing shorter review episodes during  the broadcast of series six, giving my thoughts on each episode and playing relevant trock songs. In the next day or two, there should be another podcast episode released, mostly just catching up on old news and songs I’ve had lined up for a while. (As well as my super-belated Christmas Carol review.) Then my review of The Impossible Astronaut and Day of the Moon should be out next week after the second part has aired. After that, you can probably expect weekly or biweekly episodes for the duration of this series.

More frequent news posts – After the post at the end of this month, I’ll be posting news posts weekly. There has been so much trock news lately that I feel like I need to be updating more often to keep up with it! Once this series is done, I’ll probably continue doing weekly (or, more likely, biweekly) posts.

Other things?
People seemed to like the series 5 song list I made, and I plan to continue doing that sort of thing. I’ve already started a page for series 6 songs here (the YouTube playlist is here) and I’ll be updating it as the series progresses. In the future, you’ll be able to find all the “themed” song lists here.

Though it might not seem like it, I have a lot of ideas and things planned for this site. (And with the end of the school year approaching, I might finally have time to follow through on some of them.) But, I’d also like to know what sorts of things you want to see. Would you like to see some album reviews? Trock artist spotlights? Interviews? Non-trock-related reviews? Crazy rants? What would you guys like to see? (Also, am I the only one who thinks there should be more trock on tumblr?)

Let me know in the comments below!
