Edible Onion A Cure For The Broken-Hearted
The compilation album is an oft-abused tool of record labels and music collectives to promote the music they are releasing in a cheap and quick manner. They usually include an impressive number of artists and songs; however, most of the time, less than a handful of them are worth listening to and the packaging usually leaves much to be desired.
Here at Edible Onion, we have put together a very special collection of songs that we hope will not end up underneath your car seats, and to prove that we are serious about it, we are releasing it in a run of 1000 accordion books. Each book is made with home-made book cloth and assembled by hand. The books are printed on a beautiful, recycled speckletone paper and each one is hand-numbered. The artwork features watercolor illustrations and handwriting by Darian Scatton, who also designed the packaging.
We kept the number of songs relatively low so we could craft an album that flows well, feeling more like an actual record and less like a collective of scattered songs that don't belong together. Most of the artists on the compilation are from Philadelphia with the exception of two, and many have either appeared on our last compilation, or appeared on other releases we have done. We are very excited to bring you this collection of old and new Edible Onion artists, and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
