1 On 1: Album Swap
Your favourite album is a precious thing. Minutes of solace, brimming with memories, perfect lyrics and those wonderfully familiar melodies - basically all the feels.
And letting someone listen to your favourite songs - and by extension, you? Things can get real personal - and real judgmental - real quick.
We asked this of two of our favourite BNKR graphic designers. Did they agree? Or disagree? Or agree to disagree? Find out.
#1 Dads – About Face
Reviewed by: Katie
Overall rating: 7
Sounds like: Napping in the sun - don’t listen to this when you’re trying to get motivated for work in the morning, it'll just make you want to crawl back under the covers.
Best track:So Soldier - nice intro hook.
Worst track:Camberwell - talk singing is not my favourite style.
Pros: Good way to get your heart rate down and relax.
Cons: Songs sound pretty similar.
Album Artwork: 9 – nice colours, excellent typeface.
If this album was an object it would be… A pillow, the large soft kind.
Unknown Mortal Orchestra – II
Reviewed by: Sammy
Overall rating: 8
Sounds like: Whammy riffs and fingerpicked echoes distorted by a funky, nostalgic sound. Young men and women singing through a preloved megaphone.
Best track: One at a Time.
Worst track: Dawn – a bit too space cadet.
Pros: Upbeat bliss, yet reflective.
Cons: The heavy drums overpower at times.
Album Artwork: 7 – a little vague with no type. Probably the mystery they were striving for...
If this album was an object it would be… A fondue set.
