Oliver Mann: The Possum Wakes at Night

The Possum Wakes at Night is a vast yet intimately detailed work, both in sound and feeling. Oliver’s voice can shoot from a booming baritone to a soprano with an elasticity that plays into the arrangements of his songs, shaping their folkish hue into boundless realms with a whimsical zeal. The recording has a hugely idiosyncratic feel to identifies it as the personal work of a single individual. For this reason the decision was made to use images of the artist on the sleeve. Oliver was photographed rotating at 45 degree intervals and the images used on concertina fold-out sleeve to create an almost filmic type of portrait. Large bold type is printed over the images with extremely heavy underlines as a reference to the overwhelming power of the lyrical performance.
