The Making of Somniloquy Episode 4 - Behind the Scenes at the Album Photo Shoot

Please click through and select "watch in HD" where possible, as the low quality version looks a bit strange.

This is a video from our photo shoot at the Pasadena Museum of History. The photographer is Lauren Noble. Guest appearances by Tifanie McQueen, Paul Plunkett, Michael Holmes, Mary McIlwain, and Aaron Arendt. This was a really fun shoot. The song is "Rosabelle: Answer - Tell," the last track on the album. Enjoy!

Amazing review from Wears The Trousers

I love the UK-based magazine Wears the Trousers and have been reading it since it first debuted. Today is an extra nice day because they have given Somniloquy a very nice review. To quote:
The art and concepts of Somniloquy explore may be steeped in 19th century nostalgia, but the subject matter is universal and transcendent of time, drawing on themes of love and the relationship between heart and self. Amid the somewhat eerie settings, there is a pleasing warmth and modernity; each song is crafted with care and thought, composed with subtle layers and looping refrains. Tackling the majority of vocal duties, Adriana has a versatile voice, capable of both sailing, breathy cooing and darker ethereal melodies. There are clear dream-pop conventions at work here, melting into the folktronica canvas of their work; this is ambient chillout music, but with content.

Somniloquy Is Here!

somniloquy som·nil·o·quy (sŏm-nĭl'ə-kwē) or som·nil·o·quism (-kwĭz'əm) n.
The act or habit of talking in one's sleep.

The big day is here! Our new album, Somniloquy, is now available for purchase. It has taken over three years to get to this day, so we are extremely excited to finally get to share this music with you. To purchase the physical CD on CDBaby, just click on this link:
THE ENDLESS: Somniloquy
You can also find the album at Amazon. For high quality MP3s with embedded artwork and lyrics with self-determined pricing, please visit our music store. In the Merchandise section of our store we have also put up t-shirts for sale:

...along with a great new Collector's Pack that includes signed CDs and posters from Somniloquy and the Republic of Heaven.

We've also posted a new episode in our Making of Somniloquy series, discussing the song "Rosabelle: Answer-Tell."

If you've already heard the album, would you please take a second to post a short review on our CDBaby and Amazon pages? We would really appreciate it.

Stay tuned to our Twitter feed today for short hints and factoids about the new album.

Phew! That's a lot! What a day. Thank you to all of you for helping make this happen, and for those of you who anonymously recorded your dreams for us: you are so very beautiful. Thank you.

Last Day Before The Big Day

Well, this is it. Today is the last day to order our lovely pre-order package. It has been such a pleasure to make and send these packages to you, and we really hope you enjoy them. A HUGE thank you to those of you who supported us with the pre-order. Most importantly, your support means we get to continue to make music, and that's what is so special about all of this. The dialogue back and forth with you is what makes this all worth while. You are the artistic patrons of our time, and should be proud of that. Thank you for being our De Medicis.

Tomorrow, if we are lucky and all the stars align, CDBaby will list Somniloquy for sale. Amazon will definitely list it, and it will be available here as a download purchase in our music store. iTunes will probably take a while longer, but honestly, wouldn't you rather get the songs here with a higher sample rate with embedded artwork and lyrics? We would think so. If anyone has technical questions about downloading from our store, please don't be afraid to ask.

We will see you tomorrow. Have a good night!
