Probably seems a bit trivial, but what was the motivation for ditching the standard CD jewel case on the self titled album (which is, incidentally, my favourite album to date)?
Thanks for that Steven! Yeah - we just wanted it to FEEL good in every way possible - sound and touch. Jewel cases feel so antiquated, and the thought of all that extra plastic just seems...icky ;) It's important to us to keep in mind what makes us feel good about listening to albums (especially the cardboard feel of vinyl) and trying to transfer as much of that into the experience of listening to our music. Something more organic and real versus synthetic and breakable, like a little tiny piece of art. That's the long-winded version! Cheers, -L-
