Perhaps My Favourite Series of Album Covers Ever

In Geeky, General, Music on October 29, 2008 at 12:28:46 am

Modwheelmood released three volumes of their Pearls to Pigs EP set, making one complete album in the end. Here are the covers for each release:

 

Anyway, all three volumes are excellent. My favourite tracks on each volume:

  1. MHz
  2. Domenica Pomeriggio
  3. Scared of Everyone

Go buy them on iTunes or Amazon today.

Just thought I’d give a teeny update on the statistics front. About a year ago, I was averaging around 40-50 page views per day, with a one-day high of 170. As of today, I’m averaging about 150 views per day, and an all-time high of 494.
