The Terrible Cover of MGMT’s New Album
Congratulations to MGMT. The Brooklyn “indie” act just released the cover for their sophomore LP, Congratulations, and it may be the worst album artwork I’ve seen all year.
All other bands out there, take notice. MGMT has thrown down the gauntlet for atrocious cover craft, and it is quite the challenge.
True, I’m not an MGMT fan. But, you’ve got to be unabashedly in love with the band to think Anthony Ausgang’s piece for the duo’s new album is “good.” But, to each his/her own… or something.
