Albums*
(* Fiberoctopus has never really been much for "putting out albums".. really what I/we do is just record a song every once in a while, and if turns out ok, I post it on the internet. Then repeat the process. But the idea of having songs grouped together is kinda cool, so basically I've gone back and "retrofitted" the songs that I've posted separately over the years into albums, categorizing them by the year they were recorded.)
