More specifically, those are copies of Ripostes by GPSYMTH. Out today on Stars & Letters, this limited edition of twenty (only 20!) comes in the form of a Madagascan Sunset Moth (Chrysiridia rhipheus) in a 1.25 oz glass vial. Ripostes comes with immediate download of the album, including bonus remixes by MOTION CTRL and Iglooos.
With the popularity of digital downloads and download codes, almost anything can be an “album.” What’s important, then, is the artistry. Stars & Letters have gotten all of that right. These bottled specimens are honestly beautiful, and Ripostes is an excellent debut for GPSYMTH (read: gypsy moth).
See more shots of the Ripostes Moth in Glass Vial Edition here. Get your copy here before they’re all gone. I’ve already snagged mine.
As you may know, Pushmi-Pullyu has been working on new album – for a very long time. Word is, that album is nearing completion. (FINALLY!)
In related news, the Mixtapes|Heartbreaks blog recently featured Pushmi-Pullyu’s “In the Bleak Midwinter” in their March MP3 Roundup. “In the Bleak Midwinter” was originally arranged for a performance a few years back on WYOU’s Just Say Ho! Telethon, which required local bands to play at least one holiday tune. Pushmi-Pullyu chose an old Christmastime hymn, turning it into a sort-of love song. (We then released it as mam233.)
Check out “In the Bleak Midwinter,” as well as Mixtapes|Heartbreaks’s other March picks here. For updates on the album, follow the band on Facebook and/or Twitter.
