Some labels really make an effort to make the packaging look great. Dutch/German Staalplaat is a good example, UK’s Striate Cortex is another. The latter has just released a gorgeous 2CDr box entitled “The Trees Are All Blocking The Forest” and features a 27 minute track by A Vibrant Struggle. Striate Cortex’s head honcho Andy brings “copy and paste” back to its original form: self designed cardboard boxes with a wood-like outer shell and soft felt covering the inside, lovingly housing 2 CDr’s in a folded multi-color booklet. The box is available at Striate Cortex and also features tracks by Max Belancourt, Wereju, JR Moore, Astral Social Club and a solo piece by Sindre Bjerga.
