Singapore's much-adored band Concave Scream recently released their fifth album Soundtrack for a Book, and have literally taken packaging to a whole new level by attaching the CD to a second hand book.
The nine-track, 43-minute release is entirely instrumental, and all 1,000 copies will come in specially selected second hand books, including dusty old ones from Enid Blyton, with the CD secured somewhere within the book with a bolt and nut.
The album is priced at S$20, and is currently available through online orders via www.concavescream.com (where you can customise your own virtual book), or physically via The Esplanade Store or at 2 Leng Kee Road, #03-02 Thye Hong Ctr, Singapore 159086 (near RedHill MRT). The band are gearing up for an album launch on 18 September at The Esplanade. For more updates and info, visit www.concavescreamband.blogspot.com.
