The packaging from Time Released Sound releases is among the most gorgeous I've seen. In this case a 3" CD mounted to an old shellac record. The term brittle certainly reflects both the nature of the packaging and the audio. Followers of David's music will be familiar with his releases on Octoberman, Boltfish, Symbolic Interaction, Mobeer, Cotton Goods, etc. What we have here are six delicate minimal compositions recorded at home using computer, keyboard, guitar and micro cassette. In many ways the recordings feel like they could have come out on shellac with brief moments recalling The Caretaker. All very spacious and introspective sounding with some lovely moody piano tinkling. These things are very fragile so do handle with care.
