Andrew Meza – Waiting On Annie Clark Mix

I’m always glad when a new BTS Radio mix shows up. Haven’t heard much from Meza in a while, so…. MP3 is available here. And of course, the mix comes with some new LCP United work. BTS RadioAndrew MezaLCP United

Daedelus – Of Snowdonia

Obviously I haven’t been running across many amazing album covers lately, so I suppose I’ll dig up some old favorites. Of Snowdonia introduced me to the music of Daedelus, one of my favorite electronic artists. Interestingly enough, I purchased the…

Current TV – Ghosts of Techno

I just watched this pod about Ghostly International on Current TV. Artist/producer ISO50 aka Tycho (who I posted about earlier) makes an appearance, which is awesome. Just wish Dabrye had made it into the clip. Either way, this is why…

Daedelus – Love to Make Music To

Haven’t been posting for a few weeks, probably because I was busy moving and haven’t had the chance to pick up music lately. I’ll try to post more often soon. Anyway, this is a great new album by one of…

ArtDontSleep – From L.A. With Love

From L.A. With Love is a collection of tracks by various artists out of LA (Nobody, Daedelus, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Flying Lotus, Madlib, Gaslamp Killer) put together by Andrew Lojero, aka ArtDontSleep. The music is amazing, but he also took…

One Self – Children Of Possibility

Something just didn’t sit right with me and this album. I’m not sure why. Maybe it was because it was so different from DJ Vadim’s USSR: The Art of Listening, an album I was obsessed with back in high school.…

Georgia Anne Muldrow – Worth Nothings

This is the inside of Georgia Anne Muldrow’s first EP on Stones Throw. Surprisingly, I enjoyed this more than her LP, Olesi: Fragments of an Eart, although both albums are top notch. I’m pretty sure I read that the album…

Flying Lotus – Reset

I may have posted about this before. But I think I was focusing on his website and not the album. Either way, the cover is amazing and I’m really excited about his Warp LP coming out in June, Los Angeles.…

Take – The Dirty Decibels of Thomas Two Thousand

Something about California… Take is another producer out of LA, part of the Dublab crew. On his MySpace he describes his sound as “Brian Eno meets J Dilla”. His latest EP, The Dirty Decibels Of Thomas Two Thousand features a…

Nobody – Western Water Music Vol. II

This album is DJ Nobody’s sequal to 2003’s Western Water Music Vol. 1, featuring some nice psychedelic beats accompanied by vocalist Niki Randa. The cover was designed by Ashkahn. It seems he’s done a lot of work for Ubiquity Records,…

The Gaslamp Killer – I Spit on Your Grave

It’s obvious who designed this. The Gaslamp Killer released a new mix on street-art icon Shepard Fairey’s Obey imprint in the form of a box set. What I’m more interested in is the photo that the portrait is derived from,…

Eric Lau – New Territories

Great album with a great packaging. The spacey/retro style fits well with Eric Lau’s music. The design was done by Ashkahn aka Don’t Stop Studios. Photography by Adrian Wood. Don’t Stop StudiosAdrian WoodEric Lau

Ghostly Swim

I love free things. I also love Adult Swim’s taste in music. Their new compilation comes from Ghostly International, home of one of my favorites, Dabrye, as well as Tycho (aka designer ISO50). Unexpectedly, Flyamsam (Flying Lotus & SamiYam) is…

Clark – Body Riddle

Artwork by Universal Everything (according to Discogs. I’m getting the album in a few days so I can confirm.) Also, a wild video for the track “Ted”, done by 1stAveMachine. Hope you like bugs!

Daedelus – Live At Low End Theory

Cover photo by Laura Darling. A recording of a great live session by Daedelus at the Low End Theory in California. That is a beautiful monome. I’m still trying to figure out the connection between Laura and Daedelus. I’m assuming…

Squarepusher – Ultravisitor

I once had an aversion to album covers featuring artists’ faces. Although I think that typically went for bland pop albums, ala Jessica Simpson. Fortunately, Squarepusher isn’t Jessica Simpson and this cover is an exception. Maybe what attracted me most…

Dabrye – Two/Three

This artwork comes from Dabrye’s electronic hip-hop album Two/Three, done by the New York-based street artist WK Interact. He is well-known for the expressive use of motion in his work, often splattered across walls on the streets. I think the…

Savath & Savalas – Mañana

Savath & Savalas – Vidas Animadas I’m surprised I haven’t mentioned artist/designer Maya Hayuk yet. This is the cover she made for a mini album by Scott Herren’s (aka Prefuse 73) Savath & Savalas project. It was the desktop background…

Prefuse 73 – Preperations

I made a post about the cover of Prefuse 73’s Preperations album a few months ago when it was first announced, but I wasn’t sure who the artist was. Now I know that it was Kim Hiorthøy, who also happens…

ISO50

Tycho – Sunrise Projector I’ve been seeing a lot of this guy recently, first on MySpace and then on some blogs. Scott Hansen’s (aka ISO50) design work is inspiring. I’ve seen a lot of similar work, but something about his…
