SYNTHETIC ID: Escapement: 7”

Jan 27, 2015

This is a really interesting package. The sleeve is made of fancy archival paper and has been splattered with paint. There was also a little strip of paper (not unlike an obi strip) around the record itself that was also paint splattered. There is also some kind of foil wristwatch thing that I am pretty sure is chocolate in the middle. What about the music, you say? Think along the lines of some of that angular, early-’90s Dischord Records stuff and you would be on the right track. By the last song, “Tabula Rasa,” I was hooked. This is great stuff!
