Time Released Sound’s packages just seem to get fancier and fancier. This one here comes in a wax-sealed envelope with a padlock and stuff so I can’t take a closer look but here’s what the press release says is within: “The deluxe version of ‘Winter’s Fire’ comes in an edition of 100 uniquely handmade copies. Inside each copy is a stamped and printed, 9″ x 15″ heavyweight page from a 100 year old apothecary’s ledger, with all the original hand written prescriptions adhered thereon. Woven into this page in places are twigs. Each page is then tied up with antique string with an attached old, large, brass clothespin. Folded in three and hubbed in the center for the factory pressed disc, each of these pages with it’s printed vintage paper insert comes in a large antiqued envelope. Each envelope is printed, and distressed with Piedmont Pines ash, pastel, and ink…and hand stamped and sealed with blood red sealing wax.”
So, er, yeah, I guess the lesson here is that you get what you pay for, and there is of course the option of buying a regular CD if the music is the bit you want to pay for or you just haven’t won the lottery this month. The music here is well worth paying for too, whichever version you choose. It’s got Wil Bolton and Lee Anthony Norris collaborating on seven tracks of cinematic ambience full of dreamy drones, melancholic melodic shapes and desolate field recordings. In ‘Ordained By Winter’s Fire’, echoed vibrato guitar shudders and sighs over solitary piano notes floating on synth swells as a stream trickles away; then in ‘Faraway’ the drones seem more organic, accompanied by distant fingerpicked guitar and rainy introspection. It’s a wonderful, soothing CD, with intricate layers of melodic ambience to calm your world-weary soul.
