Top five album covers of 2009 (Madmadcat edition)
5. Burning Hearts, Aboa Sleeping
4. Obi Best, Capades
3. Camera Obscura, My Maudlin Career
2. OOIOO, Armonico Hewa
1. Delorean, Ayrton Senna
Each of these, by the way, happens to be represented on my best-of-2009 mix CD, which is pretty much done. I'm going to let it sit for the weekend though, as there's no rush and such things should marinate for awhile.
ADDENDUM: Delorean put a different cover, below, on the Spanish edition of Ayrton Senna, which also suits very much. I like these guys; with their civilised pop sheen they remind me a bit of Saint Etienne (who also do good album covers). As they are from Barcelona I'm hoping it's not a stretch to imagine them playing Primavera next year.
