Certain kinds of sensory phenomena send a rush of blood to certain parts of the male and female anatomy, just as other phenomena seem to suck all the blood right out of those same anatomical features. The artwork for Intronaut’s new single, “Milk Leg”, produces the former effect in yours truly — and do forgive me if that’s too much information.
This post is way past the time when I stop plastering the site with daily blather, but I couldn’t resist adding this, because I like the art very much. The song “Milk Leg” will become available digitally on February 5, and it will appear on Intronaut’s new album Habitual Levitations (Instilling Words With Tones), which is due for release on March 19 in North America and March 18 in Europe.
Is the song worth a shit? I have no idea, nor do I yet have any idea whether the rest of the album will produce a stiffening effect comparable to that of the eye-catching album art. I do indeed hope that “Milk Leg” will also produce a third-leg effect.
I only have this one additional comment: I wish that when record labels reveal artwork for albums, EPs, or singles, they would identify the artist. We may be primarily after the music, but if the artwork alone is worth spreading — as this clearly is — then please give credit where credit is due.
And in other Intronaut news, I would remind US residents that they are on tour with Meshuggah and Animals As Leaders, and that the dates can be found here:
love intronaut, can’t wait to hear their new material. the artist should be given credit though I assume he will be embedded somewhere in the CD cover.
I must say thats some damn fine artwork.
Google image search is your friend. I came up with Randy Ortiz as the artist: http://www.damnthedesign.com/
This is some killer artwork. I love the surrealistic quality and coloring. I completely agree about spreading the artists on the label’s part. Not only does this information help the artist get more clients, but also opens bands up to a catalog of available artists. Artwork adds a whole visual dynamic to an album and credit should be given where it’s due. Although Google search can be your friend (referencing the post above), my band had the hardest time hunting down more unknown artists that do quality work but don’t charge an arm and a leg (like some bigger names whom I won’t mention). For example, Absu’s album “Abzu” had killer, foreboding work but trying to find contact information, not just the name, for the artist was exhausting and nearly impossible. With that said, we found Mark T. Cooper on a whim and loved his style.
