Best Art Vinyl 2014: vincono i Royal Blood


Il 2013 aveva registrato la vittoria nel Best Art Vinyl award di ‘Big TV’ dei White Lies grazie all’art direction della coppia Gerard Saint/Markus Karlsson e al dipinto di Michael Kagan. Il premio è stato inaugurato nel 2005 e i vincitori passati sono stati: Hard-Fi, Thom Yorke, The Cribs, Fleet Foxes, Muse, Klaxons, Bright Eyes, Temper Trap e appunto White Lies. L’edizione 2014 viene vinta invece dall’omonimo album dei Royal Blood grazie all’opera di Dan Hillier intitolata “Falls”. Sul podio anche FKA Twigs e Future Islands. L’autore spiega: “I made this image in the Spring of 2014 as one of four pieces made at that time, the others being Midpoint, Meta, Suit. I named her Pachamama after returning from Peru, where I had the privilege of sitting in ceremony with Shipibo master shamans in the northern Amazon and wandering about the southern Andes. Royal Blood approached me in the summer to make a new picture for their debut album, and then decided they wanted to use this piece, and it’s been lovely to see how far and wide it has appeared”. Tra le copertine in lizza c’erano anche quelle di Royksopp & Robyn, Caribou, Foo Fighters, La Roux, Sohn, Bombay Bicycle Club, SBTRKT, Temples, Jack White, Tame Impala, Coloumusic, Young Feathers, The Wytches, Hudson Mohawke, Bob Moses…
