    Second album 'Mister Salmon on the Nature Trail' is scheduled for late 2014 early '15, following a complete remix. Eleven tracks, each offering a different interpretation of "nature". Songs take the point of view of humans and animals, arcadian dreamers and sceptics. Some are quite folky, but there's a lot of electronic noise in the mix, and contrariness in the lyrics.
