I was on my train ride to work one day last week and was tuning out to Spotify’s Best Alternative playlist. I don’t usually pay much attention to the cover art but this album cover definitely caught my eye and interest.
The band The Decemberists album “what a terrible world, what a beautiful world” features a mural that appears to be a quilt. I immediately went to the google to get more info and learned that it is a mural in Brooklyn. Or at least was in Brooklyn for the launch. When the lead singer, Colon Meloy, announced the album her performed a few songs in front of the mural. Have a look and a listen: http://m.pitchfork.com/news/57193-the-decemberists-announce-new-album-with-colin-meloy-busking-on-brooklyn-street/
This wonderful cover art caught my eye too. I quite fancy making it as an actual quilt. The design must be by Carson Ellis who’s married to Colin Meloy? BTW you need to correct the spelling of Colin’s name 😉
Thanks. I had checked his name but will fix. Appreciate it. 🙂 i will have to look up his wife. Whoever created it is ummensely talented!
