UPDATE: 180g Clear w/ Autumn Leaves is now SOLD OUT. The Buy Now link has now been updated to reflect Thrill Jockey’s copies on 180g Black and Metallic Gold.
NOTE: This is somewhat of a novelty item, as the label mentions… “If you are a collector interested in this unique edition, be advised that there are noises and irregularities in the audio that differ from record to record. Thank you for reading, we know you take your record collection seriously.”
Â …and yes… those are leaves pressed into 180g clear vinyl… We’ve never seen anything like this!!
Barren Harvest’s latest LP,Â Subtle Cruelties, has been gaining some steam prior to becoming available having tracks released as teasers via Pitchfork and The A.V. Club.
Barren Harvest is a collaboration between Lenny Smith, from Atriarch, and Jessica Way, from Worm Ouroboros.Â Subtle CrueltiesÂ spans an atmospheric exploration of a folky, doom ridden environment. Dusk, shadows, cavernous depths… these are features you’ll feel when listening to this heavily introspective release.
I understand this may not be for all, but we love quirky attention to detail and something like this stands out prominently. I, personally, love to discover what any and every piece of music can drag out of me so this is one record I’m certainly interested in exploring!!

This product page is only for the ultra limited edition of Barren Harvest's "Subtle Cruelties" LP clear + leaves.
This edition was created by a lengthy and delicate process that is still in its infancy and is recommended for those that collect vinyl and for those that procure vinyl records for novelty and aesthetic.
If you are an audiophile there are two other options, one of which is classic black virgin vinyl presenting the album audio in its purest form. We recommend the black version for audiophiles. That version, along with the gold version, are both available by accessing the other product page for this release in the Handmade Birds store.
If you are a collector interested in this unique edition, be advised that there are noises and irregularities in the audio that differ from record to record. Thank you for reading, we know you take your record collection seriously.
