Beautiful covers

Speaking of that letter in my last post, buying or listening to records based on their cover art is something I’ve always enjoyed. Among my drafts I found a post on that topic. Let’s read it!

One of my favorite things about buying records is owning little pieces of art. Because some album covers are just insanely pretty to look at. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve bought records based on their covers many times. Here’s some of my favorite album art:

Prawn – You Can Just Leave it All

The Hotelier – Home, Like Noplace is There

Albert Hammond, Jr. – Yours to Keep

Jens Lekman – Oh You’re So Silent Jens

Ben Howard – Every Kingdom

Death Cab for Cutie – Transatlanticism

Grizzly Bear – Veckatimest

Seabear – The Ghost That Carried Us Away

We Were Promised Jetpacks – These Four Walls

Damien Rice – 9

Minds Like Mine – Set Up & Set Out

Best Coast – Crazy for You

State Faults – Vespers

Elliott Smith – New Moon

Wilco – Sky Blue Sky

Bright Eyes – I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning

Rest in peace, Elliott Smith

Can’t wait to go on YouTube tomorrow to see which Elliott Smith songs Badly Drawn Boy (the guy in the photo above) played tonight at the tribute show in London. Should be great. Elliott Smith was a phenomenal songwriter, truly one of a kind. And Badly Drawn Boy has grown to be one of my favorite artists out there. Hearing Badly Drawn Boy perform Smith songs should be heartbreaking but beautiful. Rest in peace, Elliott.
