'm taking a break from running around in childish excitement to write and share the news! I received in the mail some copies of the beautiful new album of Adrienne Pierce, "Oh Deer"! Oh to see it up close after more than a year of collaboration and hard work! I'm just too excited and took some photos which i will share below, in between my overexcited rumblings. :)
I have been listening to the album for months now, from early recordings to the final polished lovely sound that i am holding in my hands right now. Adrienne has found her way most naturally in my music library n playlists and i bet you will feel very cosy in her company too. Adrienne keeps getting better with each album at her enchanting craft. There is a quite technical review here if you happen to understand composing as much as i understand painting. ;)
So the essence of the album is pure honey but appearances matter also! And oh, am i pleased with all the superficial parts! The whole album looks like a little jewel and it is very eye catching in all its mellow moodiness. I think i managed to convey properly the escapistic and whimsical feelings, so prevalent in Adrienne's sweet sound. I know Adrienne is very happy with the result and i hope you all are too! Please share your thoughts and all critique about the design is very welcome. You can go over to Adrienne's MySpace or Twitter page and share the love about her music too.
On the technical side, i am really very happy with the vibrancy and accuracy of all the colours and the fidelity of all the little things, like letters and so on. I took careful care for colour accuracy and it paid off as the album came out almost identical to what i was seeing on screen and test prints. Kudos to the people at Discmakers for sticking to their tight specifications and doing an all around jolly good job of printing the album.
There is also an eight page booklet with all the lyrics that comes with the album, but is not in these photos. You can go to Ms Adrienne Pierce's new site and get the album directly from her and i recommend you do! You can listen to five whole songs from the album there too and the rest you will listen when you have the album in your hands. ;)
Happy listening and singing-along!
