Cover-sation is a new feature here on Figment News where we’ll post an album cover from Figment and ask you what you think of it.  Good, bad, indifferent?  What do you like about the cover’s design?  What don’t you like?  How might you have approached the same cover?  In short, we’ll have a conversation about an album cover design…a Cover-sation if you will.

J.T. Florence, aka Wun, is one-man band in the truest sense of the word, and “Recyclone” while a joint effort with his late brother Matthias was truly a D.I.Y. release.  Released on the opening day of Wun’s epic World Tour with bigPEBBLE, this bootleg recording was sold only as a 45 RPM Vinyl record at the band’s merch booth.  With it’s limited release it’s already a collector’s item, but it’s striking and original cover is in our opinion yet another reason to covet a copy.  What do you think?

    This is another one of those covers that instantly caught my eye, and I almost bought the album because of how awesome the cover is. I love how the picture is crumpled, yet is still recognizable. The lighting in the image is great, because you can really see every wrinkle. It’s perfect that this album was released as a 45, because this cover really screams “vinyl” to me. If this cover were shoved in a jewel case it would ruin it.

    I agree with frizbee. This cover is eye-catching, original and disturbing. It draws you in and makes you want to find out more. A contender for album cover of the year, perhaps?

    I loved this cover when it came out and love it even more knowing that it was a 45 rpm only collectable. This is Wun’s best cover to date and a high-water mark for any band. Great stuff!
