album art of the year?


walking on a dream (click for larger image)

I can't get enough of Empire of the Sun's perfect end-of-summer single, "Walking on a Dream," which has quickly become one of my favorite songs of the year, and accompanies me just about everywhere I go lately. Thanks to James for sending over the just-released, epically fantastical art for the duo's debut record, which was inspired by the time Luke Steele + Nick Littlemore spent in Shanghai filming their first video. Can't wait to hear the full record -- due out in October -- but here's a remix of the first single from Nick's big brother, Sam La More:

mp3:
empire of the sun :: walking on a dream (sam la more remix)

************************************************

Also, in addition to making me nostalgic for the over-the-top movie posters of my youth, that ridiculous cover got me thinking about the best album art of '08. I'm sort of drawing a blank right now, but I've posted a few more of my favorites from this year after the jump...who am I missing?

I PERSONALLY LOVE ANY ALBUM ART FROM BOOKA SHADE BY HORT (HORT.ORG.UK) AND 08'S SUN AND THE NEON LIGHT IS A GREAT ONE. THE RE-RELEASED VINYL MIXES OF THE ALBUM HAVE AN EVEN SWEETER COVER.

The Bangers & Cash cover is great.
So is Saint Dymphna.
And how about the Diplo Top Ranking Lion and the art for the Lucky Dragons album.
Also the various cover art for Ariel Pink's Oddities and Sodomies.

Worse album art? High Places adn Chad Vangaalen

Hey Chris.

Thanks for giving Off The Record a mention, and glad your just as stoked about the EOTS artwork as I am.

Check out the album cover for My Disco's album 'Paradise' if you ever get the chance.

If you want over the top, go look at Amon Amarth:

http://www.metalblade.com/amonamarth/preorder02.jpg (apparently the fullsize image got pulled from wikipedia, boo)

Not that I would normally recommend a metal album on an indie blog, but that cover is just too terrible, in a i-worked-really-hard-on-it-but-have-no-talent kinda way

It's crazy how good album covers so often coincide with good albums.

It's not out yet, but I think T.I.'s Paper Trail cover is great.

irony taken to new depths. kind of funny, i guess. reminds me of that artist "lassen."

all i gotta say is... is that's your album art of the year, i must respectfully, and vehemently, disagree.

When I logged into the hotel, I was surprised that I had 1000 habbo credits which is unbelievable. I logged back in 5 minutes later to discover that all my habbo gold has been stolen. It gives you a virtual environment where you can use your imagination to create your own small cartoony world with your own habbo coins and interact with different people. For decorations you actually pay real monry to buy habbo gold in the range of $0.20, it may sound ridiculous. To use Hotel navigator you need to install cheap habbo credits of macromedia shockwave player. There are two types of rooms, public and guest room.

Weekends to peopleig2tmean that they can have a two-day wowgold4europe good rest. For example, people gameusdcan go out to enjoy themselves or get meinwowgoldtogether with relatives and friends to talk with each storeingameother or watch interesting video tapes with the speebiewhole family.
Everyone spends agamegoldweekends in his ownmmoflyway. Within two days,some people can relax themselves by listening to music, reading novels,or watchingogeworld films. Others perhaps are more active by playing basketball,wimming ormmorpgvipdancing. Different people have different gamesavorrelaxations.
I often spend weekends withoggsalemy family or my friends. Sometimes my parents take me on a visit to their old friends. Sometimesgamersell I go to the library to study or borrow some books tommovirtexgain much knowledge. I also go to see various exhibition to broadenrpg tradermy vision. An excursion to seashore or mountain resorts is my favorite way of spending weekends. Weekends are always enjoyable for me.
