Thought the name of that band was 'A CEO of Tomorrow' which seemed quite dark.

That Tyga cover is pretty noteworthy. Was a little surprised to see posters of it hanging on a city street.

(The "SMJ" + Matador catalog number added to boat's hull is nice touch...)

One day I'll figure out why twimg links never load for me. But I like that Manic Street Preachers cover.

Don't know how noteworthy this one is, but it's kind of intriguing and made me want to hear the album:

OK so possibly the most !! thing about this is that the record inside this sleeve exists, however I am digging the 70s budget album vibe of the cover.

By contrast, this one just screams "I licensed my back catalogue to a budget label that sells its wares only in motorway service stations". Poor show, Kylie.

Cover connections: feels like the dude that did that ADT album has been gifted some Michael DeForge back issues since he last updated his own website

Worst album cover I’ve seen this year is the 30 seconds to mars one

Shriekback, 'Why Anything? Why This?'

That's definite "is this intentional?" territory

This I like:
Stimulator Jones - Exotic Worlds and Masterful Treasures
https://d1wtzzt4oxg683.cloudfront.net/images/covers/large/140/170390.jpg

Cover of new Arctic Monkeys is also great.

holy shit! i didn't realize stimulator jones actually took off. i heard he was talking to stones throw awhile back but could never confirm. that album cover looks like it was done by daniel cundiff who does the eternal summers and young sinclairs album art

Stimulator Jones album is as dope as its cover btw

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 6 May 2018 13:17 (two weeks ago) Permalink

Christ! That Shriekback cover is terrible.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 6 May 2018 13:20 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I have pretty low expectations for the music too tbh
