Rachel Goswell Waves Are Universal Package
Rachel Goswell's 2004 solo album Waves Are Universal is a stunning achievement, woefully overlooked and as lush and full of life as any spread of flowers anywhere. It's a brilliant album, executed with tender care and fussy attention to detail.
The artwork for this album is stunning. The package folds out into a broad sheet with photos and artwork on one side, flowers and lyrics on the other. This is worth it for the design and detail alone. It's a fantastic presentation, on 4AD, nonetheless.
