Research into down-tempo artists album covers
Similar artist: ‘Bonobo’
Black Sands released 23 Mar 2010 by ‘Ninja Tune’ Records .
This album cover utilises a overwhelmingly atmospheric
landscape photograph, immersed within nature and open to
the sky, with nothing man made but a radio tower in the
centre. The image fits well with the feel of the music and would
intrigue audiences by filling them with awe. This simplistic
design works effectively with the clean simple font, in
white, which stands out to clearly promote he producer and
the album. A similar design may look effective for a panel of my
digi-pack, especially as similar imagery is used within my music
video.
‘Dial 'M' for Monkey’, released 9
Jun 2003 and ‘Animal Magic’
released 23 Jun 2009 both under
‘Ninja Tune’ Records . I like how
both album cover utilises a
montage of images, all lifeless to
create a sort of mosaic/ collage
with some of the images fitting
together to create an
atmospheric creative album
cover much like the spirit of the
music.
Similar Down-tempo artist:
‘Cinematic Orchestra’
‘Ma Fleur’ released 9th May 2007 under ‘Domino Recording
Co.’ Simple, clean, atmospheric and effective, I have noticed a
common convention of a very relaxed photography of
nature, throughout down-tempo artists, with a clean font
saying no more than what needs to be said, in order to give
credit to the artist, however not packaging their identity's as a
product to be sold; it seems the music is more of an important
aspect than the fame or fortune.

Man With a Movie Camera Released 3rd June
2003 under ‘Ninja Tune’ records. I think the
white background with the black silhouette
and the Text in a flowing font above means
that the audience focus on the artist, and then
when looking closer see the album name
shadowed within the silhouette. This shows
the artist isn’t particularly interested in
promoting themselves to the
mainstream, rather the devote niche audience
who listen and consume down-tempo music
Similar Down-tempo
artist: Morcheeba
‘Charango’ released 1st July 2002 under EastWest
UK, has a simplistic design, effectively and clearly
promoting the producer and album at the top and
then filling the rest with abstract art employing
various colours and the album name ‘Charango’ in an
abstract typography making it stand out, while staying
very neutral so as to appeal to its niche fan base.

‘Big Calm’ released 21st Dec 2004 under
EastWest UK. This cover uses an relaxed
colour matching room, filled with items that
the audience would identify with, for
example the record player, the Buddha, and
a girl listening to the music looking very
relaxed. Listeners would identify with this
and the way it captivates the spirit of the
music in the image. The producer and
album name is placed on top in a
box, blocked in white with black
text, making it very clear to read, and
contrast with the colour scheme of the
image.
Similar Down-tempo artist:
Thievery Corporation
‘The Cosmic Game’ released 22cnd Feb
2005, under ESL Music, Inc. The cover
uses no text at all on the front, and uses
an image of the two producers that has
been greatly manipulated and the
designer has used an abstract
background of some circle within circles
graphic, most probably developed on a
programme such as Adobe
Photoshop, or After Effects. I think it is
effective and would be plausible to use a
similar design, if able to find effects to
manipulate images like this.

Sounds From the Thievery Hi-Fi is a
compilation album and utilises a
simple manipulated image of a
record player, of which music lovers
and the audience identify with. The
text is layered above and clearly
promotes artist without over doing
it. The recurring image of vinyl
players makes me think maybe I
should use a vinyl digipack? Or
utilize them as a theme of the music
in some way.
‘The Richest Man In Babylon’ released
30th Sep 2002 under ‘Universal Music
Division Barclay’. This cover uses a
simple green background with a white
circle under a red circle, which stands
out and leads viewer to look at the
simple font titling the producer and
album. It continues to be a common
convention within the genre to avoid
over promotion of the artist, the
audience is a specific niche audience
who do not identify with over
marketing of producers and artists.
