Musing #87

Having a nailbiting time waiting for 3 deluxe releases from 2 different artists to arrive in the post. Drawing on my BA dissertation, it seems that physical recordings of music have gone the way of the foundation garment – its signification/soul/etheriality internalised, and its remaining corpus/shell fetishised.

 

Although, to be fair, I probably wouldn’t have thought of the link had I not been waiting for two vinyls (which will never leave their wrapping), a CD which scores extra fetish points for being the result of liberating licensing rights from the record label, and this set – the fetishistic nature of which is quite self-explanatory.
