The great Anton Alfred Newcombe is working on his first full album in 4 years (and his first new recordings in 2 years). Anton is living and working in Iceland. Most days he updates his myspace profile with new photos. There's something about these pictures that's tranquil, focused, meditative, creative while also being wild, frightening, unhinged and yet not without humour. Simply, the sensibility and presentation is very fascinating. Here are some of my favorites (in hronological order no less)...
Also, here's a note Anton wrote regarding his recent activities...

And just so you know the get higher that the satellites refers to a post he made regarding the US using army satellites to observe US citizens to "help stop crime"
