mark skinner This may not make sense, but I found this album an hour or so before I needed to clean up the very urban front garden from winter. Sampling a few tracks and I realized this was exactly what I needed on the headphones while picking up strangers' dog shit and litter mixed in the decaying leaves and broken flower stems. Beauty is everywhere. Thank you, bvdub. Favorite track: 05 - Crushed Under the Wait.

clarence cornish this is truly one of the most beautiful and spiritually edifying works of art that i have ever, ever been giving the honour to experience...i find myself ( the essence of that which is myself ) sliding longingly in between gentle, comforting layers of auditory bliss...rambling a bit? yes...but also enraptured...i feel a unbreakable bond formed between artist, and listener which promises the coming of Dawn, that the Light will endure...all darkness shall indeed pass...thank you, Brock Favorite track: 05 - Crushed Under the Wait.

  • limited edition CD of 365
    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    365 copies, personally hand numbered, signed, and sealed in embossed gold foil. these will never be re-pressed or re-issued.

    100 Japanese-edition copies sold separately and exclusively through Linus, Japanese orders please go through, i will not accept Japanese orders through Bandcamp.

    these are encased in a CD jacket, no fold-out. This is not only to minimize shipping costs as much as humanly possible (which are already outrageous, please don't blame me, blame the postal system - *with* a protective cardboard insert i was still able to get it down to less than most CDs would cost to ship), but also because in my experience, a compact and simple jacket allows the CD to move much less, and should result in far less possibility of scratching or other damage usually caused by digipaks, eco-wallets, etc. Plus nothing wrong with less damage to the environment ;)

    * 1 CD per customer. do not try to use fake accounts etc, in order to obtain CDs so you can sit on them and gouge people on them later. i have comprehensive lists of such people (and accounts) from the Quietus days, and from current accounts from numerous labels, and i know who you are. your orders will be refused, and your money returned. this is about music, life, and experience - not your personal "investment" and thievery at the hard work of others - mine or anyone else's.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Safety in a Number via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

the most involved, complete, and intense album i have ever made - over a two-year span, on two continents, this is, for me, the zenith of my ambient sound, and voice, to date.

i am forever grateful for your trust and support.
