Here is a selection of some of the art for some of the Fall releases, some are nice and normal and expected looking (Foos) while others leave me scratching my head (Animal Collective). I like the Siouxsie artwork very much, even though it looks like a Bjork record. The Hot Hot Heat artwork blows monkeys.

I have a release schedule up on my blog thru Oct. 9th if anyone is interested.

I've always liked Cake's cover art.

That is sad.

Ah the days of the faceless mp3's... damn art killing technology.

They keep it nice and carnival-like don't they - good typography.

I like their art stuff as well, not their music so much.

did you expect anything "normal" from Animal Collective? I love those crazy fuckers.

I love the Donna's cover, it's hilarious. The Go Team! has a really cool one as well. And who can't love Animal Collective??

The worst one there is easily Hot Hot Heat.

seeing all those covers makes me feel warm for still buying albums.
if i felt pretentious enough, then i would buy the vinyl copies and hang them on my wall.

Nothing wrong with buying some vinyl. It looks good, makes you feel good, great autograph fare, sounds good, and you can wear your taste on your sleeve and not a ipod for a change.

Yeah the Hot Hot Heat one sucks, and I had hope it would at least be as interesting as the last one. I wanna know which Donna's ass that is on the cover though. Cake always delivers and freaking Animal Collective will send you for a spin every time. Foo's one is normal major label fanfare but still not as boring as other s**t that gets put out though.

Yeah she is the hot one. Donna C if I am correct.

Let's all assume that's her ass then. I like the album already.

What the world needs right now is a good R. Crumb album cover.

Cattle Decapitations to serve man has the craziest cover art I have ever seen.

Amen to that

Part of buying music is the cover art,liner notes, lyrics and what have you...in my opinion.

Here is another batch of artwork from some upcoming (or recently released) Fall releases. The bat-shit crazy art continues (SFA) as does Ministry's string of shitty album covers apparently.

Jose Gonzales needs to change things up a bit all his singles and LPs look the same.

Winehouse's album cover should been a picture of an empty whiskey bottle in a pool of semen.

Discuss.

SFA art looks good (btw ...their myspace has the new album you can listen to).

Its not a fall release but, !!! Myth Takes has great cover art.

Oh yeah - thanks for reminding me. I got an email about that SFA thing yesterday, totally forgot. I love them. (didn't dig Love Kraft as much as I wanted to)

Myth Takes artwork is crazy good IMO as well. I hate their other art though.

Yeah, they're rad
I finally had a chance to see them live at the House of Blues in Anaheim a couple of years ago with no dissapointment...and Caribou as the opener.

We got Boom Bip as a opener. Not bad either.

That Hives cover is fucking awful. But at least they rock.

I love that Jamie Cullum cover. His records are decent too. If you aren't looking for anything too substantial.
