Noteworthy Album Covers of 2017

The Man Who Saw The Midwife (GOTT PUNCH II HAWKWINDZ), Sunday, 20 August 2017 11:27 (three months ago) Permalink

Yeah there's two. My req to close one at the start of the year went unnoticed. Picked this one because it's got way more, idk.

Le Bateau Ivre, Sunday, 20 August 2017 12:02 (three months ago) Permalink

the Brand New cover is great, of course. but i'm curious: did they photoshop the girl in red? is it a found photo of a very dumb jump? did they stage a stunt? anyone know?

alpine static, Sunday, 20 August 2017 15:34 (three months ago) Permalink

I've seen that photo used elsewhere, but upside down, not sure where.

Mince Pramthwart (James Morrison), Sunday, 20 August 2017 23:54 (three months ago) Permalink

Photographer is Thobias Fäldt but that still doesn't tell us whether it's staged or not (first comment on this page is about her hair being too nice for a jump like that, but who knows, maybe she's actually jumping UP to the window and not the opposite). Came across this piece of work while searching for info.
