    Is this going to be another self-released album or will this be on a label?

    It will be on Flenser Records. I might be wrong about August, but definitely some time this year.

    Finally awaiting the Hubardo double CD in the mail, after only having heard a handful of downloads. Have to say I'm a bit intimidated by the sheer length of the whole thing, but I think I'll approach it in two separate parts. I'll be bringing this for my holidays next weekend, and enjoy some existentialist Dot eschatology growl by the seaside while I have my morning swim and some Cremant.

    SS - so have you had time to finally digest it all? Kind of curious to hear your thoughts on the album in full.

    Well, what to say? Like many others have stated, this thing somehow marks a return to Driver's (somewhat) pre-Dot aesthetic with motW, only that the Hubardo concept draws on experiences and revelations that logically followed from thereon. Thus, this isn't as much a "return" as an accumulative evolution of sorts, blending practically all aspects of Driver's artistic wealth with that of a highly individualist ensemble - no matter how much of a paradox that may sound. You can hear snippets of everything the whole Driver-and-friends collective has ever done in here, yet it sounds strangely coherent and together, consequently neither appearing too stressed or excessive spite the massive dimension of it. I was surprised at how relatively easy (well, for the trained ear, I suppose) each half flows, and I've actually been able to sit through the whole thing on a handful occasions now, with ever more enlightening result. Is it essentially metal? Not really. I'd say they are to "avantgarde post-metal" what Henry Cow were to experimental progressive on their Western Culture in '78, and begging the same obvious dilemma; where on earth (or above/below) to go next - if at all?

    Toby Driver : “They Are the Shield” [Blood Music, September 21, 2018]

    The artist behind such infamous, progressive, cult, chamber-oriented projects as maudlin of the Well and Kayo Dot injected new life into his long-dormant solo project early last year with his first album in a decade.
    Driver returns with “They Are the Shield,” the prolific composer's first album in over twelve years that harks back to songwriting structures developed and perfected in his maudlin of the Well days.
    Notes of singer-songwriter sensibilities simmer beneath a fog of synthesizers, expansive soundscapes, lush chamber orchestrations, and sullen atmospheres, punctuated and driven with a soft percussive heartbeat.
    Imagine Bob Dylan deconstructed. Imagine motW without the metal or Kayo Dot without the chaos.
    Toby Driver returns with one of the strongest entries in his abundant and celebrated career, signifying a complete evolution into artistic maturity. “They Are the Shield” delivers experimental chamber songs for the darkest of autumn days, recounting the rare and ethereal essence of such eminent luminaries as Ulver, Kauan, and Ólafur Arnalds.

    Track list:

    1. Anamnesis Park
    2. Glyph
    3. 470 Nanometers
    4. Scaffold of Digital Snow
    5. Smoke-Scented Mycelium
    6. The Knot

    I'm not familiar with his music but this sounds intriguing.
