Daydreamer – Camus (Deluxe)
TRS043 is the feature full length album from Russian duo, Daydreamer. Entitled “Camus”, it is an homage of sorts to the great French existentialist writer of the same name. Like the band name suggests, it’s a dreamy mix of melodic post rock ambiance, and serves as a sort of soundtrack to the road movie that Albert Camus lived… and died on…
Limited version, in an edition of 90 copies, comes in the form of a multi page booklet that is hinged in the corner and fans open into an abstract mandala of sorts. The cover photo is printed on sheer Japanese tissue paper, and is hand adhered and shredded… The pages are printed on super heavyweight Moab paper, and are punched, collaged, sewn, stamped, doodled, and in general hand worked as usual. The back of the pages are a spray stenciled daydream of their own! Hanging from the front corner of each booklet is a little capped vial containing most of a Gauloises cigarette… the brand that Camus obsessively smoked until the end… feel free to light it up, listen, and start a daydream of your own! Each booklet comes in a 6″square, spray painted, punched and stamped translucent envelope.
