I kinda like both Persistence of Vision and United Acid Emirates.. PoV seems to always catch the attention if I have visitors and it's lying around some place.

Yeah that's my problem with it, it's 'tasteful' in a terrible way. Looks like something you'd buy on canvas in Ikea to put on the wall opposite the one you've stenciled 'Live Laugh Love' on.

 

Whereas UAE is bad taste in the best way, wtf kidrodi.

again what you seem to completely miss is that these covers are supposed to be humorous. (that means funny) They are not taking themselves too seriously, and instead are trying to capture a certain tongue-in-cheek naivete associated with music that unironically used cover images such as these.

 

if you do no understand this, or respond with the argument "but it still just looks bad" then you are probably 0 fun to be around and have some weird, stuffy view that music needs to be as serious as possible to be successful artistically.

      So I spent the majority of last night (12am-5am) messing around with this thing. It's a programme based off of that deepdream thing google had awhile back. anyways it's free, you just sign up and upload an image and select a filter you want to use. I got some pretty cool ones, some not as interesting. in the time it took between uploads I was on here reading thru different threads, so I figured i'd share a bunch of them. As you all know by now, my favourite æ album is of course their best album, and that album, as we all know and can agree upon,   is Quaristice. So naturally I spent the most time with that one. I would have done more but I musste sleepen. If anyone feels like doing some of their other album covers, or even other cool covers, please post 'em up!
      Note that I always chose to keep the original colours when filtering.

      For those of you who haven't seen this mentioned in the FWP thread you're in for a treat...
       
      So this is how the festival was promoted
       

       
      And this is how it was described
       
       
      ...and it ended up like this.
