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.

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

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
