Feast your eyes, hipsters, on a convergence of good taste. Contents of the package were as follows:
- Over The Rhine's new CD, Snow Angel. It's a Christmas CD that I'll be listening to year 'round. All twelve songs have their signature smoky, organic sound, and it's packaged in a trifold case that looks like jewelry. The artwork was all done by my friend, Owen, at Visual Fluency. It's a package to behold. I love the line in the liner notes that says "This music was recorded to be played at magnificant volumes." So shall I play it. Speaking of OTR, pickup a freebie MP3 of theirs right here and play it as intended.
- One pound of Chuck Roast's new Over the Rhine blend. I am drinking it even as I type, which is slowing me down considerably in my typing speed, but I'm happier than I would be without it. The label itself is artwork to behold - a cleverly done character by buddy/artist David Sheldon.
