Claude Mono is back in the studio after what seems like forever as we slowly make our way back from isolation. The home-made editions of the Golden Apples produced over the last month or so have been amazingly creative and joyful listening. A very golden apples sounding episode of the golden apples with lots of unessential but yet essential sounds.

OK I’ll skip the digital…

“As regards the packaging. We had a lot of time on our hands these days, and we have made use of it in an even more than usual over-the-top fashion! – TRS089 comes in two distinct physical versions. The first absurdly deluxe, and absurdly labor intensive limited edition boxes come in an edition of just 50 copies. Each of these seriously modified, lidded boxes is a naturalistic “specimen box” of sorts. The front and back are covered with 100 year old German botanical prints, are hand stamped as usual, outlined in gold, and all the labeling is hand typed on a vintage typewriter, and then hand applied. The edges of each box are rolled with metallic silver sunflowers. The interior lid features Japanese plant embedded fine art paper, the factory pressed CD on a hub, as well as a vintage photo of families and children enjoying their time in nature. Inside, each box is layered with naturalistic prints of birds and paper ephemera, small vintage floral cutouts, actual dried flowers and twigs and bark, and a 60 year old handmade, wooden, insect specimen “slide”. A 45rpm lathe cut record single, with remixes of two of the lovely tracks from the album fits snugly in its own forest green envelope, that has also been stamped, and adorned with an actual dried flower. And finally… each box comes wrapped in a large cut and folded botanical print, and is then tied up with vintage twine!”
