John has written a long blog post, his first in four months, explaining the creative process and tools used in order to make the four songs off the upcoming Foregrow EP. While he doesn't classify this songs as belonging to any particular genre, they were recorded in 2009 and one of them was to be performed at the 2009 Bang Face Weekender.
He goes on further to say that these four tracks were chosen by Oliver Bristow of Acid Test and that the others are those that have been shared for free on bandcamp and SoundCloud. He explains how the cover art is a visual depiction of the lyrical "rules" he used for the title song and how the gigantic sculpture (nope, it's not a digital model!) crumbled into pieces one day after having been photographed.
He also showed four photographs of his home studio, taken a couple of years ago.

In the meantime, a couple of music blogs and news outlets picked up on what appears to be a clone of the post on the label's Facebook page.
