The genre we choose as a group was Indie. I am not a fanand don’t know anything about the indie genre but this willgive me the chance to learn more about the genre and knoweverything there is to know about rock music and howeverything is put together to make a digipak album and theadverts in magazines promoting the album.

The Libertines’ picture on the albums aren‘t studioshoot, they seem to be just normal pictures from acamera and just edited by changing the saturation,brightness or making it black and white. The pictures seem to be taken as they perform orjust running in the streets or at bus stops. Everyday lifeimages. Their photographs are very naturalistic as theyknow the been photographed but act as if they don’tknow, also it’s very candid as they are not posing andjust being them. Rock/Indie album covers are normal photographstaken at a clubs, buildings, gigs, out in places etc,instead of a nice photo shoot, studio photograph.
The Libertines’ The Jam’s album isand other simple as well with itrock/indie bands being just a plainlike the Arctic picture and their nameMonkeys have a and album title acrossmood of ‘Do it the top going diagonallyyourself’ immature and them at the leftthing because their bottom of the albumalbum covers are cover. Whereas, Oasis’very simple and album is like a paintingdifferent as well. with the album title in the middle which again shows no picture of On the other them..hand, The Enemy’salbum cover is veryplain and they The Libertines’haven’t put album cover is verythemselves on the different and not toocover but they have simple as these 4 rock/indie band’sput their band album.name and thealbums title.
The Libertines’ back cover of their album seen‘Up The Bracket’ is quite plain as it has an image of The Oasis’ back of the album2 of the members smoking and the track list and the has a quite a plain backgroundbarcode with a few information that can hardly be with the track list in large font andread. Where as, the album ‘The Libertines’ has an the barcode.image of all of them and on the side a plain whitebackground with the track lists and the barcode.
The Libertines uses loads of dark colours. We can see the most common colour used is red, black and white which makes everything stand out from the picture on the cover. In the album of Don’t look into the sun, the colours used are more brighter :- yellow and orange even though the colour black is still used/
The Libertines’ uses the fonts thatlook as if they have cutting lettersof a magazine, books etc. making itmore rebellious. This font that The Libertines have used seems more like a sticker/label as it’s place across half of the album cover. This font also shows that it has been cut off a book or something but as words not letter as the one above.
In these 2 albums on the left, The Libertines seem to wear a soldier alike costume. Where as on the 2 albums on the right, the Libertines wear normal, casual clothes.
