Amazing resemblance to Don Van Vliet

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.

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

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 last two are pretty great minus the type on the bottom.

wow WORLD KID is a terrible one

frogbs in the trap (J0rdan S.), Wednesday, 2 May 2012 14:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

the 'two wings' one is especially bad because i really had to study the stupid little naked people to figure out what letters they were representing

album covers that say "[title] by [artist]" are generally pretty shitty though, yeah

Maybe there should be a general thread for naked people font but here is my favourite (obviously not very recent):

Good call Nick, was thinking the same thing about the cover connect. That Bongwater album is all time classic.

Great incorporation of type too, which always seem to be the hardest thing when designing album art.

being a pedant, but re: that dave dub cover, it looks like hand-lettered text, not type

10. “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – Tom Cruise (contenderizer), Monday, 7 May 2012 17:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

hand-lettered typography

nowhere near as good as the new one, though

It's hilarious isn't it? I like the build up of different visual planes too, and the wetness of the window and the greeness behind is just lovely.
