Earlier this year, Projekt released the “wood box” edition of girl. echo. suns. veils., a two-disc collection of rarities, b-sides, and unreleased tracks that came in lovely hand-crafted wooden box packaging. But, seeing as how it was a limited edition release, a number of fans and collectors missed out on owning this little slice of blissed out esoterica. Which is why Projekt is now offering the “burlap” edition of girl. echo. suns. veils., or as they put it, a “limited edition of the standard edition.”
Many of you missed out on a chance to purchase the wood box edition of girl. echo. suns. veils. But fret not! Scott Cortez has returned to Brooklyn to create 200 pieces of the ultra-limited “burlap” edition of the standard edition.
Here’s what you get: the girl. echo. suns. veils. CD in a kraft-paper digipak signed and hand-numbered by Scott (see below). An 8-page booklet printed on really nice 80# Cougar matte stock is included in the digipak pocket. All of this is in a clear bag inside a burlap bag that Scott spray-painted in our warehouse during a heatwave (in your choice of paint colors: burgundy or metallic silver). Each bag is different; no two are alike! Also in the bag are multicolored origami birds, feathers, and a download code for the companion album AVIATRIX, a reprocessed version of Avianium (the bonus album in the wood box edition.)
And if you miss out on this edition of girl. echo. suns. veils., Projekt will be releasing the “standard” edition — which consists of just the album in normal packaging — on August 10 2010.
