Album: A Lazarus Taxon
Label: Thrill Jockey
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.
