I made a lot of purchases based entirely on packaging of the CD. The cooler it was, the more likely I was to buy it. This album happened to have a weird black packaging and nearly everything on it was written in Hebrew. When you take out the CD, you see it is labeled with the words “Operation Handcuff” and has a message to drug dealers stating that all conversations taking place on “this payphone” are recorded.
Then it turns out to be a 2-song Godspeed You! Black Emperor album entitled Slow Riot for New Zerø Kanada. So yeah, not much help there. I don’t listen to much Post-Rock, but this is definitely piquing my interest. The two songs are gorgeous and sizable, and each one uses its own length (10 minutes and 17 minutes, respectively) to seamlessly build up to a powerful and almost overwhelming climax.
Either way, the whole thing is really pretty, both in terms of packaging and sound.
