Best album artwork 2018

It’s colourful but a bit formulaic.

@WizardLizard I was actually pretty disappointed by that Ought cover.

I’ll stop being negative and post some favourites:

Lucy Dacus - Historian

Shopping - The Official Body

We Out Here - s/t

Keep meaning to actually listen to We Out Here (jazz project curated by Shabaka Hutchings of Comet is Coming fame) but, as with all jazz, I need to sit down properly for it.

Shopping is one of my surprise favourites from the year

ooh i liked the comet is coming album so i might have to pick this up

Speaking of which…he’s got a good track record in album art. Still remember this beauty:

that reminds me, i bought this in fopp the other day mainly for the cover and because the idea sounded interesting and coz it was on erased tapes so i knew it wouldnt be shit

turns out its brilliant, glitchy ambient with bits of modern classical

Ah how come (in regards to the Ought cover)? I’m quite a fan of thick brush strokes on a canvas though…

Of the three you’ve posted, I quite like the Lucy Dacus one! Not heard (or seen the artwork for) the We Out Here album. And as much as I love the Shopping record, I thought the artwork was pants, like an A-Level photography project or something…

Ought one is great, like I’ll see it in a shop or online once or twice a week and I see something different in it every time, even if it’s just a glance. I’d buy a print of it and stick it on my wall if I could.

Not totally into the album but i should give it more time

The gatefold vinyl of the Ought album is a gorgeous thing.

top tunes too.

I like this so much I put it up on my wall. On the actual LP cover the orange bits are foil.
