Background info

The "Masters of Song Fu" contest was announced on May 1, 2008, by Quick Stop Entertainment, with whom Jonathan Coulton and Paul and Storm had previously collaborated. The contest solicited twenty songwriters to compete against three (well, four if you're being very technical) Masters, similar to the television cooking competition Iron Chef. The Masters were Jonathan Coulton, Paul and Storm, and Doc Hammer. Technically not an album, but a collection of songs produced for the contest.

The second round of Song Fu added a new Master (the RiffTones, featuring Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett), and new songwriters. The first song for this round, Always the Moon, was released on August 21, 2008. However, Jonathan had to withdraw from the second round due to the birth of his son.

Availability

Originally, the tracks were only available for free on Quick Stop Entertainment. Jonathan has since added the tracks to his store under The Aftermath.
