The top 20 vinyl record sleeves of 2014

Patina Pooling


This record is so industrial you need to watch out for rust! No seriously, you do. The 2x 180g vinyl is wrapped in weathered and laser-etched reclaimed steel sleeve and packaged with artefacts salvaged from a burnt-out American warehouse in the ‘80s. As a result, it weighs a ton and the rust does spread. As impractical as that may be, it’s beautifully fitting for the music of Patina Pooling  – a haunting “call and response of residue and hybrid” between industrial pioneers, :zoviet*france: and sound scavengers, Fossil Aerosol Mining Project. Marking F.A.M.P.’s first vinyl release after decades of tapes and CDs, the edition is limited to 350 copies and sold out almost immediately.
