maudlin of the Well (the former incarnation of Kayo Dot) is reuniting to release a new album featuring unreleased material and various fragments of music from 1998-2000 that will be completed and performed within the musical idiom of the original band. Each of the band's former members (Toby Driver, Greg Massi, Jason Byron, Josh Seipp-Williams, Sam Gutterman, Nick Kyte, and Terran Olson) has agreed to participate in the project.

Here's where the weird stuff comes in: the album will be completely fan-funded and released for free onto the internet. So far, the band has accrued enough funds to produce a full-length record. Further funds will be used to hire session musicians to increase instrumental variety and to press copies of the material.

They've got enough money to fund it, but keep donating so they can release a hard copy.

Apparently they were taking donations on the Kayo Dot website, and some insanely generous person donated enough for them to create an entire album! And to make things even better, the original motW lineup (minus Maria-Stella) is signed for this.

I think the blog title accurately describes what's going through my head right about now...

This is rather old news.

But still, I am excited enough to post and say how excited I am because I am so excited.

I'm a reasonable man, get off my case
