Cover Art Highs and Lows: Veckatimest - Grizzly Bear


Grizzly Bear
Warp Records.

It isn’t often you see cubism beyond the confines of Picasso prints, let alone on pop-art formats like album covers. Pretty cool. It almost makes me want to return to Studio Art class where comments like “the shades of pink give the piece a warmth that really centers its mood” and “triangles make me edgy!” were considered critical feedback. In other words, if I was a freshman back in university, I’d choose the Veckatimest artwork over, you know, the Salvador Dali option...
