Being a shallow kind of guy, I’ve always been of the opinion that album artwork should be as good as the music. Sure, it’s ultimately about the music but beautiful artwork and packaging can create a mystique that makes me feel more attached or involved in the music.
A perfect example is the new Jan Driver album “Amatilda” recently released on Boysnoize Records (and recommended to all you freaks who like Mr Oizo or SebastiAn). The artwork has been done by Jan Stoewe and a piece for each album track (as well as audio) can be viewed on the Amatilda website.
