I’ve been a fan for a long time now, and I saw them at WOMAD a few years ago, which was a real joy. Now they’ve released Burials in Several Earths on 10″ vinyl and it is a thing of beauty. Not only to listen to but simply as an object in itself. I’m glad to own it.
I couldn’t help but get this new limited edition box set by Fennesz. Even though it’s live I really wanted it, and got it, and it’s beautiful. 2 x LPs, 2 x DVDs and a CD too, plus a very beautiful overall package.
I already have this album, I got it when it first came out, but when I heard that Steve Jansen was selling off the last remaining stock and signing them I thought I ought to buy it again. It’s always lovely to have a signed copy of things and this album especially so.
I hope he releases some more stuff from Bandcamp in the not too distant future.
I know I only posted this recently, but as it is Cassette Store day today I thought I would post it again. This is a beautifully made and packaged cassette. I also love the music too, which makes it even better.
I already have this album, on vinyl and on CD, but the tape has something special about it, and it isn’t just that it was the format that I bought this album on for the first time. No, it’s something different.
With the original tape was a lyric list that came with it, printed on the same sort of paper that bibles are printed with. It was a lovely touch and in keeping with the whole album, so when I saw it come up on eBay I knew it was something I wanted to own again just for old times sake.
