The limited edition item provides online access to Matthew Dear's new full-length.
Ghostly describes the totem as "an abstract key to an unknown door" that is "both a sculptural representation of the themes explored in Black City and a symbolic conduit to the music itself." More specifically, it's a small oblong box that kind of resembles a sky-scraper, inscribed with the letters MDBC and a unique "alphanumeric suffix" that provides access to a private page on www.matthewdear.com where Black City can be streamed or downloaded. The totem was designed by Constantin and Laurene Boym of Boym Partners, a New York-based outfit that won the 2009 National Design Award for Product Design. It can be had exclusively through the Ghostly Store starting this Tuesday to the tune of $125.
