Notes This has to be one of the most singular designs we’ve featured on Hard Format. There are three releases here: the first contains four 3″ CDs, the second a standard CD and the third a 7″ single. The twin pyramid shapes tied together by a slender thread are deliciously mysterious, they were hand painted by Dani. Between 200 and 250 of them were assembled since 2007. Will wrote to tell me that this is one of the last four Dani made. She died suddenly in her sleep in July. I confess I was extremely reluctant to cut the thread to see inside – I really wanted to leave them unopened, but ultimately thought it best to document them here. You can judge their size as one of them is cradled in my daughter’s hands.

The images used for Brittle and Mane Bloom might pass unremarked but that the emptiness of the unpretentious farmhouse and the strangeness of the man recumbent behind the mound of earth is subtly bewitching. The 74 minute Brittle is hauntingly ethereal, it seeps into the room like dawn or dusk, suspended.

  1. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more
    in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better? 31muvXS cheap flights
