Blown away by these sleeves from a recent series of releases by contemporary musician James Ferraro. I'm featuring a few here, but there are many many more here going back to 2004. I'm feeling the masterful xerox collage style. Noise in the machine. On a visual level, these images express exactly how (cool & weird) the music sounds. I first heard a similar kind of sound in the early 00's from Ariel Pinks Haunted Graffiti, but to me, with Ferraro's sound, the use collage is way more embraced and you really travel..! Stoner Murk", and "Hypnagogic Pop" are a few terms I've come across describing the music of Ferraro, his collaborators and similiar muscians. Here's an article from The Wire about the "Hypnagogic Pop" sound.
