German Army—Socotra Scripture cs

German Army
Socotra Scripture
Horror Fiction Tapes

German Army is my favorite band today. This tape has that wonderful warm blanket of audio patina that just melts the end of my day. This is what drugs should sound like. 

I love this design. First of all they bent the rules on what goes where on a tape j-card. That's important. Secondly, the j-card is actually pages from a 1962 novel called The Wizard of Linn by Vogt. I have never read this but I'm a little curious. The texture of the paper sounds like the music. This is an important design element. Bravo the the designer and the label. I'm impressed. Maybe I can con them into releasing a blsphm tape.
