alionmind news - October 6. 2013

A bit later than scheduled, but here's your monthly news from the alionmind towers. A lot of stuff has been released for you during the past month. I hardly can believe it myself, that this all took place in just one month. Let's look at it piece by piece.

New old free alionsonny album "The Alion Archives"
The biggest event, especially for the old time alionsonny fans, was the release of a new free album, containing 13 tracks of which some are called "legendary" by some people. The album is free as in beer. It is titled "The Alion Archives" and can be downloaded right from the alionsonny homepage. Just CLICK HERE to get your free copy. The album contains mostly reggae-ish songs from around 2006, including colaboration tracks with Colin Mutchler, Ital Roots Players and Scott Durfinger.

2 new songs by the alionsonny project
But there's also brand new music from the alionsonny project. 2 new songs have been completed for the upcoming album "Continuity". And both tracks are a definition of the continuity of the alionsonny project as a music project without genre boundaries. On September the 4. "Pirates of Madeira" was released. It is a lively reggae-ish crossover track, which could aswell ended up as a track for the Willma Poppen project as some may say. It is dedicated to the brave crew of the Nau Santa Maria de Colombo in Madeira. Read more about the song on the alionsonny Blog.

The second track released by the alionsonny project in September is even more one of the strange genre mashups, the alionsonny project is known for. It is, like in the old days, a mix between Irish Folk and Reggae. Unlike the previous Irish Folk Reggae blends done by alionsonny, this track melts the genres together instead of just forcing them to coexist. It all started with the idea to version the classic "Sleng Teng" Reggae riddim and evolved into a Sleng Teng Reggae version of the well known Irish Folk song "Whiskey in the Jar" with the well known tune "Lord of the Dance" as a secondary melody. The track is titled "Ganja in the Jar". Guess why ;). Read more about the story behind the song on the alionsonny Blog.

2 new songs by the Willma Poppen project
Yes, also 2 new songs for the soon to be released Willma Poppen album "Willma im Wunderland" have been finished. First, on September 17th, a new very danceable track, titled "Himmelswiese" was presented to the public. One one hand it is another happy Willma Poppen track. On the other hand you will, as allways spot some unique moments. Read more about the track on the Willma Poppen Blog.

The second new Willma Poppen track is the first collaboration track of the project ever. It is also the first track with vocals, namely spoken word by Donnie Ozone. It also features a quite unusually serious sound for the Willma Poppen project. Read more about the track and the quite interesting story behind it on the Willma Poppen Blog.

2 brand new AlionLive videos
First, the little video series about my bike trip from hamburg to Mölln and Ratzeburg has been completed. Read more about it on the alionsonny Blog. You can also now view the whole video series in one playlist with a total run time of 2 hours and 14 minutes. Nice entertaining for a cozy video evening ;)

I also started working at the remaining video material of my 2012 trip to Madeira "AlionLive Return 2 Madeira". I had a bit of a problem with the video material of day 10 I had to resolve before working further at it. Read more about that trouble on the alionsonny Blog.

Sorry Cimelium fans
I have to beg the Cimelium fans for patience. No new track for the "sibling" albums "Madeira" and "Ad Hominem" has been finished during the past month. Currently I want to get the alionsonny album "Continuity" out at all cost. So stay tuned. I promise: In October you will get at least one new Cimelium track. And i keep my promises. And, hey Cimelium fans: None of the other projects has 2 albums about to be released. So in fact you are the ones who get the most when it is album release date. So keep patient. All comes when it comes ;)

So that's the news from the alionmind multimedia factory. Let's see how things go in October! We cary on, we are alion :D.
