Dani Shivers (Tijuana, MX) releases her third album Half Ghost which concludes a trilogy started with LPs Jinx and Syzygy. Dani continues her childish incantations and goes towards darker and minimal lands.
Vinyl edition of this third album is accompanied by a metal module, which once folded by its owner, becomes a 16-sided mirror carousel and reveals an animation with the label of the disc during its reading: a cat running, in tears, and another cat who hands him a handkerchief in the other direction.
Release Date: Friday, September 13, 2019

The module is inspired by the praxinoscope presented at the 1878 World's Fair in Paris: a toy giving the illusion of movement and operating on the principle of optical compensation. This fascinating process has already been used with children's discs in the 1950s by the brands Teddy, Red Raven and Moviton.
