Favorites 2009: Album Covers
Shades of Grace Jones and Jean Paul Goude. Hot.
I like how minimal and edgy this is. She has a lock on indie pop Goddess.
I prefer album covers with "iconic" images and this makes her look like a huge monument to herself. Elly's trademark hair in its finest state and the flawless androgyny, speaking of which...
The Gossip put the handsome Hannah on their cover, which was wry given the album title. The problem, though, was that Beth Ditto is their identity so it's hard for casual fans to even notice this is a new Gossip LP.
Antigone's friend painted that backdrop for her - it's not just two images stuck together. A perfect visual representation of the music.
Brilliant hair (which gives the mustache a pass), nice color tones and fab logo. Gives them a sort of... indie cache.
An album cover from the old school of Brit pop. "Buy us!" it says.
I wish I liked their music as well as the album cover and titles (one single was called Dorchester Hotel).
