In tandem with their new single, Swedish band Shout Out Louds released a very limited edition of ten box sets. In each set is a kit that shows the user how to make their own phonograph record of the single out of ice. The track is appropriately called “Blue Ice.”

The box set appears to contain a silicone mold that has the record negative imprinted on the bottom. The user fills the mold with water and places it in the freezer for six hours. Once solidified, the frozen cylinder can be played on a conventional record player.

The sound is a bit warbly due to the record not being quite level, and it skips here and there. Other than that, the playback is completely recognizable. What releases on alternative media can we expect next?
