As the title for the new CD from Brokenkites, Fugue State is a digital world of glitchy electronica, populated by lonely, disillusioned and isolated people. "Fugue State has a medical definition as well as a musical one," says Brokenkites frontman James Willard. "I like the concept that music is directly related to mood or mental state."
