Head over here to read our second interview with Dessa, in which we talked about Doomtree. Her new album Castor, The Twin is now available, so do yourself a favour and check it out -- you won't be disappointed.

Dessa has a new album coming out, Castor, The Twin, next Tuesday, so I will be interviewing her about the upcoming release and Doomtree among other things. If you have any questions for her, please leave them in the replies. And if you haven't pre-ordered the new album yet, then do so now because you will also get a limited edition book with your order.

Mike Mictlan of Doomtree has a previously unreleased track, "Cogs + Flywheels," up for download on bandcamp. Also, according to the The Hideaway Studio, where Dessa and Doomtree are recording their new albums, the new Dessa album will be, "a live band redo of here critically acclaimed record A Badly Broken Code, with a whole new organic twist on some of her great tracks, plus some new songs as well."
