enmossed is pleased to present 𝑬𝑡𝑴𝑺, a new cassette series curated by artist and perfumer Daisy Paradise, Florian T M Zeisig, and Glyn Maier. Releases consist of pairing an artist’s album with a plant of their choice and feature an interview - spoken or written - connected to the chosen plant. RJM Vanderheyden realized the series design beautifully with UV-etched, and color-matched cassettes and cases made from recycled materials, drawing upon a collection of rare botanical illustrations.

In the works for over a year, we are delighted to debut the first album of the series from long-time enmossed associate Chaperone - 𝑳𝒆𝒂𝒇𝒍𝒆𝒕 π‘΄π’–π’”π’Šπ’„, paired with chamomile and a chat between Daisy Paradise and Suzanne Belle Stone of Moon of Hyldemoer Herbals.

β€œDaisy Paradise tells us that when a plant is taken out of its comfort zone, its growth adapts to new and challenging conditions. Its properties change: they incorporate the difficulty and beauty of its foreign surroundings. Chaperone trawls the dusty grooves of bossa nova LPs, extracting forgotten melodies and re-contextualizing them into an indeterminate industrial churn. A boscagic echo rendered into a miniature plastic flower, partially submerged in a puddle alongside crumbling asphalt.

Suzanne Belle Stone reminds us that, while we obsess over the rare, we fail to honor and celebrate the gifts of the common - that’s why we tend to undermine the strength and the subtlety of the ever-present chamomile. Chaperone repeats a sound, looping it, making it common. An abundance of multiplicities that create a new temporality, helping us quiet our mind. Chamomile is quiet, chamomile listens. A flower that likes to grow in large groups, in community, surrounded by its own repetitions.

𝑳𝒆𝒂𝒇𝒍𝒆𝒕 π‘΄π’–π’”π’Šπ’„ is a dense hive of loops spreading their subtleties and becoming common through the air, a rooting system weaving an all-enveloping sea of electric dust under which we listen, as in a dream, to the static effervescence of a swarm of chamomile seeds. Each of these seeds contains a tiny sun and a tiny moon. Plants come to you when you need them.”
