Haha that's awesome. I saw a tiny thumbnail version of that, but didn't know it was their new album cover. Regardless, always good news to have a new Sunwatchers record.

Indian Askin - Another Round

anatol_merklich, Wednesday, 30 January 2019 20:30 (one year ago) link

Not all that noteworthy in itself, but to me "head man pretending to blow his sax by the shore" seems quite the stylistic outlier for ECM.
(Joe Lovano with Marilyn Crispell and Carmen Castaldi: Trio Tapestry)

Yes, very strange for ECM. The photo isn't even B&W or blurry!

Hans Holbein (Chinchilla Volapük), Wednesday, 6 February 2019 21:41 (one year ago) link

Checking out Indian Askin and Pictures right now, based solely on the covers...

came here to post the Sunwatchers, it's already been done but if anyone can answer my question and doesn't want to scroll up here it is again

The songs on “Illegal Moves” crackle with an energy informed by passionate disgust of the status quo, realised on the album cover by Scott Lenhardt's Mort Drucker-esque illustration of the Kool-Aid Man battling the personifications of evil from across the world.

apart from Uncle Sam/the Proud Boy/Thatcher (?) is it supposed to be obvious who these figures are

I thought that but apart from the nose the features seem(ed) kinda off to me to work as a caricature

his grin in general is already iconic i think

Came out a couple months back but still noteworthy

Tropical Fuck Storm - Braindrops

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Monday, 14 October 2019 01:31 (four months ago) link

Took me a bit of searching to make out the name: Marijannah.

Not sure it's the same artist but how many of these guys can there be?
Check out the animated videos. Actually I'm fairly sure it's not the same artist.

Robert Adam Gilmour, Saturday, 19 October 2019 14:41 (four months ago) link

A couple on the Front & Follow label
Ekoplekz - In Search of the Third Mantra
(this is kind of an F&F house style cover apparently but I dig it)
Michael Donnelly - Pardon Error

american bradass (BradNelson), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 15:39 (two months ago) link

good album, great cover

Simon H., Tuesday, 10 December 2019 17:56 (two months ago) link

Thought process, sprung by that cover: a) that must be a death metal album ii) it looks a bit like the insane inside cover of Autopsy's Acts of the Unspeakable, I should listen 3) find 9-minute centrepiece and oh shit, this is like the Scottish wave of chest-ripped-open emo stuff of the late 00s/early 10s like There Will Be Fireworks, Twilight Sad and (almost) Frightened Rabbit D) four minutes in: I'm home.

Short version: quite good this, innit?

Life is a meaningless nightmare of string (Chinaski), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 17:57 (two months ago) link

Fucking hell, the guitars on You're Gonna Hate What You've Done.

Not out until next year, and probably will be their usual undercooked ALMOST-interesting stuff, but I like the cover for the new Orb record
