The Multiple Cat is back with a new CD, "The Return of the Multiple Cat," available for $8 (or $12 for vinyl) at themultiplecat.bandcamp.com.

It was recorded over the span of three years at Davenport's Futureappletree Studio Too, "based on themes of death, existence, peril and quest," according to a band release. The eight-song disc is summarized as "40 minutes of cerebral beat-driven pop."

The Multiple Cat started in 1994 as a vehicle for Patrick Stolley, an audio engineer, singer, songwriter, producer and founding member of Daytrotter.com. As an engineer, he has recorded more than 600 bands, including sessions with Vampire Weekend, The Magic Numbers, David Bazan, Low, The National, Dirty Projectors, Spoon and Bon Iver. Futureappletree is Mr. Stolley's own record label.

The Multiple Cat will play at the Rock Island Brewing Company (1815 2nd Ave.) on Friday, June 14 at 9 p.m. Cover is $5.
