If you were unfamiliar with Jackson Jackson you’d assume they were an African music act. But according to Wikipedia they are a Melbourne based Hip hop / Afro-Beat /Psychobilly /Progressive band. Their own Myspace page labels them “ELECTRO-FOLK” which I doubt has its own section in the local HMV. What I am less confused about [...]
It’s hard to go past an album with a cute character on it that’s illustrated by an Aussie born in the same state as you were. Songs Without Words is DJ Mike Monday’s second album and contains a whole bunch of electronic tracks without words. Well technically there’s some samples which contain words so really [...]
A more ‘art’ than ‘design’ album cover is Death Cab For Cutie’s 2003 release ‘Transatlanticism’. It’s by artist Adde Russell, who created everything for this cover from a dusty, spider-infested basement in Seattle. Apparently she was a tad embarrassed when the band came round to check out her work in progress.
It’s been a while since Oscar & Ewan have emailed us and I was pleased to see they hadn’t forgotten us when they sent through Roots Manuva’s latest album “Slime and Reason”. Probably the only thing I dislike about the album is the title :)
I think this would be the first “Christian” band we have featured here on Sleevage. But this isn’t the usual WWJD type band. If you’re a christian this is probably the funkiest Sunday church music you can find :) (Note: My knowledge of Christian music is very limited. So if there is a funkier Christian [...]

Here’s a first. The artwork for an album that hasn’t even hit the shelves (yep, that makes this a premiere). You Am I’s eighth studio album “Dilettantes” has some stunning high contrast illustrated artwork courtesy of Ken Taylor, who has previously worked on artwork for Tim Rogers, amongst a long prestigious list of other international [...]
It’s been a while since i’ve seen any album covers that spins my wheels enough that i feel like talking about it. But when Jason Noto, from the very talented and creative Morning Breath Inc sent us the latest QOSTA cover and all the accompanying artwork, i decided i oughta pull my finger out.
As a huge fan of the original, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Stones Throw have just released a reworking of the classic hip-hop album Madvillainy (2004) with a special box of goodies, or as they much more eloquently put it: “a big ass box full of cool ass shit that you won’t [...]
Paul Kelly’s Stolen Apples cover might not instantly grab you by the short and curleys and say “BUY ME!” it does compliment the album perfectly and the work that has gone into the rest of the pack is a testiment to the hard work Debaser put into all their projects.
