Marty Willson-Piper's Noctorum reissue, free tracks

Though he is often seen as a guitarist and sideman in Aussie psychedelic rock legends The Church, Marty Willson-Piper has emerged as a world-class songwriter in his own right. Aside from his 30 years with The Church, he's released 5 solo albums, 4 live albums, toured and recorded with too many artists to list, and worked on a pair of collaborative albums with Dare Mason, under the name Noctorum. These wonderful Noctorum albums received limited distribution, and are quite difficult to find.
To remedy this, 2006's "Offer The Light", is being re-released via Second Motion Records (USA) in June 2010. It'll be housed in a tasteful deluxe softpack CD with booklet. And to help promote it, Second Motion are offering a 2-song free download as a taster. Remarkable, melodic, and well worthy of your attention.
