I know there are a lot of fans of Jake "virt" Kaufman out there, so I thought I'd try to alert everyone to the fact that his latest original album, FX4, will drop next week on March 1st courtesy of the also-amazing Ubiktune netlabel. FX4 is the fourth installment in virt's original chip music album series and acts as a prequel to the events told through FX3. I think you'll find the story setup for FX4 taken from Ubiktune to be most enticing:

"It concerns the loss of an experimental superweapon at sea, during a future war. Decades later it is recovered by a team of scientists, and restored to working condition. An aircraft which creates space-time anomalies, its use has unforeseen consequences, such as allowing a gay time-travelling vampire (FX3's antihero) to cross into our universe. FX4 is written in FamiTracker using only 2A03 sounds, and contains 9 songs packed with loving detail."

Even more, Noise Channel will be hosting a pre-release listening party on March 1st where virt and the show's host, TrueStar, will discuss the album before playing it in its entirety and posting it to Ubiktune and Bandcamp on the same day.

Are you as excited as I am for this album? Have you been following the FX series, and do you have any predictions for what kinds of havoc the gay time-travelling vampire with wreak this time around?
