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.

    mean Hardformat » Celer is kinda plain. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to get viewers
    to open the links. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about
    everything’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.

    The words in your post seem to be running off the
    screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do
    with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
