Additional Information: 

Canyon Candy is an album by the indie electronic duo Javelin. Soon after the release of Canyon Candy, the artists began a project to create a companion film to the album. Donors to the film's Kickstarter campaign were rewarded with a limited edition Canyon Candy Playbutton.

Now nearly obsolete, the Playbutton was a wearable mp3 player stored inside a button. The mp3 player was just large enough to play a single album, whose cover art was displayed on the front of the button. The innovative design included a headphone jack and built-in playback controls for ease of listening. The Playbutton came with a commemorative box and headphone jack adaptor.
