Way Out West: Old Grooves for New Streets
This was another cover I noticed while doing updates to the ARIA awards site. It’s one that appeals to me as a designer but also as a photographer. The montage of seemingly thousands of photos is both beautiful and disturbing at the same time.
Here’s a slightly tighter crop of the photos.
If you crop it right down to just a few photos you still get a nice montage.
The reverse side is another image from the “Wild Things” series. The format is wider crops of the photos which gives a different feel to the texture created.
The series reminded me of Chris Jordan’s “Running the Numbers” series.
The music’s certainly easy to listen to and I’d hazard a good gift for the jazz or world music loving friend or relative. You can preview a large sample of the tunes on their Myspace page. (Does any band have a real site these days!?!) YOu can also find more info out on Jazz Head’s page for the group.
