Tortoise – A Lazarus Taxon

Author: Colin | Published: 8/7/07





Artist: Tortoise
Album: A Lazarus Taxon
Label: Thrill Jockey
Year: 2006
Designer: Tortoise and Sheila Sachs, photographs by Urs Odermatt
Type of music: Post Rock
Notes: Other Tortoise sleeves might be more clever (e.g. TNT) and I’m not bowled over by the typography, but for sheer pleasure, I’ll take the wonderfully titled A Lazarus Taxon any day. Urs Odermatt and Tortoise are clearly a match made in heaven.


  1. As a sleeve designer i don’t say this lightly, but this has got to be my favourite sleeve design. Though the type on the spine is slightly annoying the photography is beautiful. Well done Sheila Sachs/Tortoise, i tip my digital cap to you.

  2. […] de CDs, capas de discos de vinil etc. A coleção ainda está em formação, mas a idéia é boa. O exemplo acima é da banda […]

  3. the photos get me every time, composed (in both senses of the word)… one could even imagine they were deliberate set-ups.. almost too perfect.

  4. Very much not though! Urs Odermatt was a Swiss policeman. His photographs both of accidents, his life in the mountains and his fellow policemen are fascinating.

  5. Gorgeous.
    And as a rabid Tortioise fan I can say leagues better than any of the shite they normally try to pass off as covers. They should have had designs like this all along.

    topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile
    friendly? My web site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4.

    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
    correct this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.

  16. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?
