Download the ground-breaking new album from folksinger Spitzer Space Telescope! Colonies in the Wild Frontier is a complete reinvention of the music album-- its an immersive, interactive listening experience that goes beyond the limits of the vinyl record and the mp3. Each of the 8 original songs are captured in vintage-looking videos accompanied by a box set's worth of content and artwork for you to explore while you're listening. With 2-3 different versions of each song on the album, you can customize your own playlist or simply tap twice to play a single video.
Colonies in the Wild Frontier is a tribute to folk music in its many forms. Spitzer Space Telescope's passion for Irish, English, Scottish, blues, Appalachian, and American old time music is impressively displayed in his modern folk songs. This album was written to simulate the way folk songs change over time by giving you up to 3 versions of the same song in different styles. Their authenticity is made even more convincing when watching the videos, each meticulously crafted to appear like "lost" folk music footage.
Designed, created and funded by Dan MacDonald Studios (, this app exhibits the immense creativity and craftsmanship of the man behind Spitzer Space Telescope, visual artist and designer Dan MacDonald.
