  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    After putting eight 2-disc sets up for sale on 3/14, seven of them sold out within 12 hours, the last one sold after 6. So for 4/20, I'm putting up eight times that amount up for sale. I'm selling 64 sets of The Ilusen's Fallacy up for sale for 4/20, a date that bears all kinds of significance.

    Each disk was handmade by myself, and each set comes with both discs in a jewel case.

    If you have any special requests for your purchase, feel free to leave them in a message.

  • Limited Cassette Tapes
    Cassette + Digital Album

    *** COMPLETELY SOLD OUT ***

    For 4/04, I've made a batch of limited press cassette tapes of The Ilusen's Fallacy! Every tape contains the entire 88.88 minutes of the album. Each cassette comes pressed on a TDK D90 Type I tape from 1982, although come in many different styles. These can be played in boomboxes, cassette decks, or car tape players!

    Although cassette tapes are undeniably outdated, the novelty of creating cassette tapes by myself filled me with almost as much joy as I had releasing the album. I was genuinely so happy. Not only does it fill my heart with so much passion, but I've also grown to love the warmth and noise that comes with cassette tapes.

    Every purchase not only comes with the feeling of a vintage, physical tape, but a digital download of the best quality version of the album. Each purchase gives you the choice of FOUR different styles of tapes, pictured above as "Miami", "Seattle", "Los Angeles", and "Chicago", and as there are only 8 tapes in total, there are only 2 of each style. The price is $16 to fund better and more types of merchandise, such as clothing and records, and to go towards the music!

about

Inaugural serves as a "hidden" intro which plays at the start of the album, but isn't part of any of the official songs, meant to fool the listener into believing they're listening to something much more Lo-Fi than the album provides.

Starting with a low quality folk intro played by Grant Garcia on a 7-string acoustic guitar, the song begins with very simple chords until it graduates into a very intense and high fidelity medieval intro, with the thick tone the rest of the album has to offer.

After a dramatic break, the folk turns heavier, with aggressive riffs and strengthened melodies, as the song unfolds into something much more diverse, turning to a progressive jazz in 5/4 triplets, then a theme that recurs later in the album in 7/8, then finally ending with a few symphonic strikes at the end of the song to show Keegan is dead serious about what he writes.
