Website with album covers

I found this website the other day while I was trying to get some ideas for album covers. I like the site because it gives a description about many well- known album covers. We might have seen these covers so many times that we don't even think twice when we see them, but this site makes us stop and think: WAIT, what actually goes into these album covers. It not only gives a description of the cover, but it gives the artist who made the cover, and the ideas that went into making the cover, along with the collaborative ideas between the musical artist and the artist who made the cover. I think this is important for my project because I will be collaborating with my boyfriend and his bandmates. This site can give me ideas as to how to work with them, and also bring imagery and ideas from their music into my cover, and potentially my poster.

Project Idea

I didn't exactly know what I wanted to do for this class at first, but I remembered after awhile that my boyfriend had asked me awhile back if I would make the album art for his band. I figured I could now use this class as a resource to not only make album art, but an entire body of work, such as posters and a music video, for his band, Perennial. When I talked to the band about my idea, my boyfriend's brother said, "Ok, but I don't want there to be any people in the video." Well, ok, Luke. Here is a video for Burial and Four Tet, two electronic bands similar in style to my boyfriend's, that I think is similar to something I would like to create for them.
