“What's extraordinary is not just the packaging's careful design, its handsome lines and sense of play - but the way this elaborate artwork feels, complements and salutes the music. It's a fitting package for well-dressed songs.” – Sean Michaels, Said The Grammophone
In this digital age, where the physical object is becoming a thing of the past, Brooklyn-based musician, Richard McGraw, is trying to revitalize the dying idea of the physicality of music. McGraw spends much time designing detailed and belabored album art. It’s the kind of art one wants to look at and hold. The first edition of McGraw's new album Burying The Dead features metallic copper artwork by Kevin Sprouls (creator of the Wall Street Journal-style portrait) and each CD is numbered and signed by the artist. The soon-to-be-released Deluxe Edition of Burying The Dead includes a magnifying glass “lyric reader” and an existential tattoo kit.
The music on Burying The Dead represents a lyrical tour-de-force, covering familiar themes (life, death, religion, love, heartache, God and Godlessness) with a candid freshness. Following in the footsteps of the poet-songwriters like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Lou Reed -- McGraw contemplates the trials and tragedies of the human condition with beautiful and poignant honesty. His uncommon vocals tremor and plead heavenward, relaying woeful tales of love and loss, existential terror and a longing for transcendence.
