Product Details
As turntable styluses are just beginning to cool down from last year's highly-antcipated, highly-lauded "Pretty Dark Things," CYNE is back with a new collection of tracks that provides both a window into their creative evolution and a summer's worth of classic jams (not to mention what many are calling the best CYNE record since "Time Being"). Introducing: Water For Mars.

"The songs on this record were created over the span of about 3 or 4 years (roughly 2004 - 2008), though every track was revisited, mixed, and mastered in 2008. The record displays the full spectrum of the "CYNE sound," including the growth of the band, our collective tastes, and the process of our songwriting. It starts on a positive note about moving forward, building community, and taking on personal responsibility (these are themes that resonate throughout the record). It grows into something very ethereal and cosmic, alongside a contrast of hard-hitting beats and confident lyrical delivery. Each subsequent 'movement' in the record is separated by an interlude: we see a blend of introspective thoughts, social commentary, and a sound weighted in a more classic, uplifting tradition throughout each of the 'chapters.' This album constantly sways back and forth between the lines of classic hip hop, textural music, and a progressive selection of words and sound -- and, to me, this defines CYNE." - Speck of CYNE

Joining CYNE on "Water For Mars" are track collaborators Daedelus and Ape School, as well as remixers ROM (featuring Roberto Lange/Helado Negro), Mexicans With Guns, and the fan remix contest winner Jay Appleseed.

"Water For Mars" is released by Hometapes in a limited edition of 1000 CDs. Each uniquely numbered package was designed by Cody Hudson ( and includes a special CD-exclusive chrome screenprinted CYNE sticker.
