Hello there, today is a very special day for Library Group Records. After months refining art work, listening and re-listening to test pressing to make sure everything is just right, sending emails back and forth to the pressing plant, and then waiting for the delivery truck to arrive, it’s finally here. We’re proud to present to you Holy Forrest’s ’Whirl/Cumulo’ 7”.
Perfectly mirroring the ethereal walls of sound hidden within the grooves, the beautiful blue vinyl and it’s housing is even more amazing than we ever expected. When we pulled the first record from it’s sleeve, expecting to see one pale shade of translucent blue, we found the translucent blue was mottled with dark blue splatters and yellow flecks echoing the tonal shifts and blurred melodies of the record.
Within the sleeve you’ll also find a double sided lyric insert (gorgeously illustrated by Holy Forrest’s very own front woman Nancy Phung), a couple of stickers, and a badge that you can pin to your favourite shirt, bag, hat, jacket, or shoe if you so wish - it’d be fitting really.
Thank you so much for your love and support, we’re honoured to be able to share our creation with you and hope you find within the sleeve, inspiration, happiness, or something deeper, cloaked by the daily workings of the world.. and if you find nothing more than the sonic textures of a band growing into their own, stick those stickers on your laptop, and rock that badge watching your favourite local band next Friday night, we couldn’t be happier.
