As the first release on our “sub label”, Time Sensitive Materials, we are very excited to be bringing you this full length album from soon to be notorious San Francisco potents The Classical, entitled “Diptych”.
The Classical is vocalist/songwriter Juliet Gordon, and insanely talented, and at times avant jazz drummer Britt Ciampa. Let’s see, hmmmmmmm…the wayward daughter of Nico, having an early Birthday Party hosted in the modern haunted house of Scott Walker? Opaqued window shades by John Barry? With it’s absolutely original sounding jazz tinged swampy post punk martial vibe, and it’s heavy drum sound and beautiful noirish vocals, it may be at times not for the easily challenged, yet is completely accessible to those like us with discriminating tastes!
As with TRS projects, the Time Sensitive Material releases will also be coming in two versions. This very limited deluxe version, in an edition of just 65 copies comes in the form of a “Time Sensitive” hardcover book… embellished with clock parts/faces/hands on the outside, and collaged inside with antique, blue tinted engravings of Greek and Roman statuary that have been modified with gears, springs and other horological workings, in a pseudo steampunk fashion. Each of the initial 50 copies has wooden edging, vintage wooden instructional musical note blocks corners, and comes with factory pressed disc and hand printed insert in a mounted, midnight black envelope.
The first 50 copies will be available and will ship on or about May 10th…the remaining copies will be available in July.
This release is also available in a digipak version of 150 copies.
Well packaged domestic airmail will be $8.00....International will be $20.00
