I preordered it too, Forrest. I didn't want to take a chance since Facture's stuff sells out so quickly!
I think you're right: there is the potential for powerful synergy between music and art/packaging. Part of what makes Facture's Light Folds
such a powerful release is the art, the photographs, the posters, and the varied media for the music. The music itself is wonderful, but the packaging (both the detail and the depth) elevates it to a level that it would not have achieved on its own. Both Facture and TRS have mastered this process in a way that few other indies have.
Now playing: Finval - Voyager
A new ambient release from the U-Cover label. Long-form, space synth tracks. I think fans of Oophoi and other like-minded artists will enjoy this. (But, like an Oophoi release, be prepared to turn up the volume if you actually want to bathe in the details.)
