Michael Heck’s fantastic sketches and doodles turn everything you knew about botany on its head as he conjures up mystical flora and weaves them between elements of the record jacket. The front cover features a dense plant scene washed over by hazy colors, setting the stage for the visual palette within. The included 12 super-zine features gold foil lettering of the Shifting States title on the cover as well as the track-list on the back cover. Inside the super-zine hide 2 more mini-zines that each tie into the overall imagery of the jacket artwork. Be sure to pack a lunch and some bug spray for this journey.
!Fresh Grab! @vinylmoonco Vol.9 – Shifting States. We’re getting ever closer and closer to one whole year!! With this package, much like with Vol.4, the front, outside cover has text using a glossy emboss that reflects off light to be seen well. This is much more successful, in my opinion, than the previously mentioned Vol.4. The cover and theme of this volume is foliage and plant life. Finding the glossy text is reminiscent of finding a small object you lost in the grass. Not a huge fan of the brown vinyl, but it does compliment the very earthy tones and theme of plant life of the package. As I write this, I’m just finishing up side A. I’m really enjoying it so far. Love that more rock and some heavier songs were featured. Being a big fan of Garage Rock, starting off with St. Tropez – Son of God was fantastic! I’ll definitely be checking them out! #vinylmoon #vinylmoonunbox #vinyl #vinylcollection #recordcollection #nowspinning #vinylmoonco #vinyligclub
