Deluxe version: comes in a modified anti-static bag strung with a 100 year old children’s game tag. Each individual package contains a uniquely mysterious, relabeled antique 5″, 78rpm record (not with music from this album on it, but quite seriously spooky when played at incorrect speeds, as we have found out ourselves), a vintage, mounted 1940’s photograph of a “freak” from an antique album of “freak show” ephemera, with original hand typed description of photo under credit sheet on backside. The cotton sleeved, factory pressed disc design is inspired and taken from a scan of one of these strange old records! In essence… a vinyl / CD combo!
Inside the book: 36-pages from Internet monsters Everything Is Terrible!; interviews with musician Robert Scott (the Clean, the Bats) and writer Amelia Gray; music profiles of S. Fla’s finest, The Jacuzzi Boys, and UK ’90s cult band Disco Inferno; fiction by Stacey Levine; photographs by Ted Barron and Gracie Remington; art by Saul Chernick, Pavel Tchelitchew, Cassie Ramone, Ilyas Ahmed.
The compilation features 12 tracks from some of the globe’s most talented sound-designers. It is a subtly rewarding headphone listen from start to finish; curated and ordered to purposefully induce a state of sleep. Starting off minimally, gradually gathering tone and atmosphere, the experience goes on without ever boiling over or reaching a crescendo. Parts of the album are light and restful whereas traces of it tread darker territory. All in all, the imagery that the album conjurs sits perfectly as a soundtrack to the dreams one experiences during a nights sleep.
