album update #3, 457

just found out that the friend we were waiting on to send parts for the new album isn’t able to do anything because his gear is kaput (which is OK, we just want him to be able to record again and we’ll work with him at a later time–sorry, alantl!).  that means that once the mac is back, mixing will be paramount, then mastering of some sort, then, bam, new album.
