Last week I featured Air Waves’ song “Keys” in the third installment of the FensePost Podcast and I made reference to this post. You see, a while back I created a little page called Cover Art and I did it outside of FensePost. Ultimately this site is the one that dominates my time, and I found it more cumbersome than anything else to update two music blogs on a regular basis. So I combined them and began transferring a few of the posts over. I didn’t realize that this one had not yet made the transition, as it’s been a solid six months since the last. Here’s the original post.
Air Waves‘ style of sunny California surf beach pop is fit for the creation of authentic packaging. Their acoustic sounds fit well with the fancy recycled paper, used as a 7″ single-worthy folded slip encasement. Add to that the simplicity of the CD itself, and brilliance ensues. It’s an indication of true creativity and modern indie affluence; to produce outstanding work in multiple formats. Air Waves is a prime example of why I started Cover Art.
That being said, I have two brand new Cover Art posts ready to go live and they will in the coming weeks. These will be the first new posts in at least six months, and I’m excited to revitalize this once dormant category. Hope you enjoy!
