I'm now playing this track for the 4th time today.  Now I'm going to sit in the corner shivering like a junkie waiting for the entire album.

I've listened to the song a few times now, it kind of reminds me of Vaura, only Kayo Dot-ified.

^Yeah I was trying to think what it reminded me of, and I think you nailed it.

It's a capital S seriously good track. Toby's just a composer in his prime right now.

I just listened to the track again after a week or two.  I think it's grown on me like all of Kayo Dot's material.  It's a really stunning track.

It's a shame that not enough funds have been raised to press Hubardo yet. Very few album releases have made me more excited than this one.  I don't think Toby is one to over-sell his material, and from his descriptions and the album teaser it seems like this will be at least as good as Choirs of the Eye, if not better.  I'm especially because it's a 100 minute narrative, and the band lineup seems largely to be a re-vitalization of the "classic" Kayo Dot lineup.  And so far musically, it sounds like nothing I've ever heard (including from KD).  Hopefully we'll get this before the end of the year.


Here's a recent interview about it:

Great interview so far - as Im reading it now.
I've been wanting at least the artwork for album releases because I did preorder the digital and shirt package. Great deal. Though I wish there would be a CD. But with financial issues its completely understandable.

I really dig this new track! 
Love it when the organ comes in mid-song and the mood gets jazzy. Very nice.

This track is amazing, way better than the previously release one.

I can't remember the last time I listened to a new song and was that blown away by it. Hubardo is going to be something very special I think.

I know it will almost certainly be my album of the year, but at this rate it might be the best thing I've heard in many years.
