Awesome news. Raum last year was excellent, not to forget The Man Who Died in His Boat, here's to hoping Liz will top both of them

Article is inaccurate. P4K article says that most of the album was recorded in 2011 with the exception of one song being recorded in 2004.

Yes and that's what this article says too (except I didn't specify the year in which that one track was recorded). What are you getting at?
