Year of the Snitch

Album cover remake for "Year of the Snitch" by Death Grips. I decided to create a very minimal design in Photoshop to serve as a contrast for the loud, maximalist music on the album. The thin white lines on a predominately black background are reminiscent of the groves on a record, but these grooves curve off in opposite directions don't resolve themselves. Instead, they are interrupted by blocks of text and the boundaries of the frame. Like this cover, the songs in the album have a basic structure and rhythm to them, but these are interrupted, go off on different pathways, and distort until these songs are completely broken down.
