Pictureplane is straight up Magic Eye. Skillful focusers will see a dinosaur and an American flag.

The Ufomammut looks like a CD to me, but I'd be very impressed if it was vinyl.

That's the limited edition vinyl.

Looks like Tori Amos' surgeon got to Bonnie.

Battles - Dross Glop

Multi-coloured dog poop anyone?

French Cricket in the USA (NickB), Monday, 16 April 2012 09:18 (2 years ago) Permalink

That's the remix version of Gloss Drop btw. The phrase that springs to my mind looking at that is 'you can't polish a turd'.

I'm not asking for Bonnie Raitt's cover to be literal or anything, but what does "Slipstream" have to do with her walking up an industrial staircase?

Johnny Fever, Monday, 16 April 2012 11:59 (2 years ago) Permalink

I like that we are going for "noteworthy" rather than good or bad, because in most cases it's obvious. But for some of the ones Bee OK posted upthread I have no idea if they liked them or not.

The band above is an unlikely mix of dudes from Les Savy Fav, Orchid, Panthers, Black Army Jacket, and matt pond PA, with DFA ties. The cover is striking and highlights this oddness.

jam city - classical curves

<3 <3 <3 perfection

hate it

Number None, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 13:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

I would skip that Jam City record because of that cover.

EZ Snappin, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 13:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, that's kind of awful.

emil.y, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 13:16 (2 years ago) Permalink

literally no idea what you all dislike about it, i love the imposing inexplicability of it

liberté, égalité, beyoncé (lex pretend), Wednesday, 18 April 2012 13:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

It looks like a shitty desktop wallpaper from a decade ago

that graphical style is still being proudly displayed in the signatures of posters on vbb car forums

don't hate the jam city cover, but it's quite dull. it could be advertising flooring or glazing material in an architectural trade magazine. except for the spilled motorcycle, but that's not doing much for me.

Terrible.

yea that jam city is actually kinda nice, i think the datedness is sorta the point. also gotta love how divisive it apparently is lol

Ty Segall Band, "Slaughterhouse"

Walter Galt, Thursday, 19 April 2012 08:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wow. Looks like Nick Blinko drew The Beyonder. I don't know that I like it, but well done.

Amazing resemblance to Don Van Vliet

Friends of Mr Caeiro (NickB), Friday, 20 April 2012 15:37 (2 years ago) Permalink

I like the Jam City even though the "COLD IMPOSING 80s HE DOESN'T HAVE A NAME HIS NAME IS DRIVER ALSO MIDNIGHT CITY" aesthetic is rapidly getting played out.

azealia canks (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 20 April 2012 15:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

^ Too easy to mock the terrible covers you find in the emusic listings, but this one cracked me up

Friends of Mr Caeiro (NickB), Saturday, 21 April 2012 14:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

wow that Flights of Fancy record is gorgeous. i'm immediately interested in hearing the music inside.

Been playing this pretty much 24/7 lately, makes up for the immense letdown Six Cups Of Rebel still continues to be.
Also still the best artwork of 2012 so far.

it's an EP not an album but I think we can all agree on this being a noteworthy aesthetic shift for Akufen

hmmmm, I saw that he hinted at this direction by doing a night a few years ago which was a parody of Ritchie Hawtin's Cube called ... 'The Pube'...

the shittiest cover of 2012?

Not crazy about the lungs, but other than that, I like it. What is it?
