    love the aesthetic – even if it treads dangerously close to hipster levels of preciousness / pretentiousness (cassettes?? – rad! music recording formats as tactile, collectable, art objects is neat). cascadian black metal – unplugged, perhaps.

    Cassette is a bit of a problem, simply because me, like so very many others haven’t had a cassette player in well over a decade, and once i noticed that 128kbs mp3s sound a lot better (yes that is a statement on how crap i think cassettes are) i ditched the tapes as well. Good luck finding a player in stores as well.

    When you buy the wooden box edition (which I just did) you can also download the track, so you have the best of both worlds. 

    I really like the idea of having a copy on cassette.  Makes me think of the similarity between the slow soft decay of both leaves and magnetic media.  Good art makes ya think about stuff like that.

    This reminds me of “The New World” by A Death Cinematic, on the Simple Box Construction label. The release not only arrives in a handmade wooden box, but also contains a hand-made, hand-stiched (!) book of photos with this really clever stamp art– the artist cut or tore small chunks from the stamp after each inking/press, so as you flip the pages of the book, the complete stamped image slowly forms out of the initial degraded noise. Past releases on the label have included homemade stickers, different sort of interesting papers and sleeves, etc. It’s pretty cool stuff, and the music is excellent as well.

    Interesting choice of materials for the project. Kind of hope he used sustainable wood for the box, given the choice of musical topic. Not sure what folk/drone is, but sounds like it could be interesting
