MASSHYSTERI - Var Del Av Stan Lp

not a new release, but i've been listening to it a ton lately in anticipation of their new LP that will be out soon on Feral Ward and realized i never made a post about it since it came out before i was working on this blog.... Sweden's Masshysteri did an awesome job on the layout of their 1st LP (which was also on Feral Ward Records). the front and back cover art features some excellent photo collage work mono-printed onto an chipboard weighted 12" jacket. i've seen a lot of punk band photo collages in my time, but none have ever come together as tastefully as this. in fact, i'm pretty sure this is the first time i've ever seen a band photo collage that is front and back cover worthy at all!

the inner sleeve was printed on a really nice bright white stock and cut with rounded corners (so classy!). aside from the A and B label info, this record layout was completed with all hand written typography, no actual fonts. this feature wins big points with me as i tend to dislike most fonts and prefer to see hand crafted elements wherever possible. i can't wait to see what they come up with for their next LP....
