If you’re anything like us, throughout Lockdown you may have been seeking refuge in some of your favourite records, perhaps rediscovering some old classics along the way. So, for this new feature, illustrator Sally-Anne Hickman re-imagines her favourite ten albums of all time by painting their covers in her own unique style, using watercolours.
Check out the eighth of Sally-Anne’s choices below, and keep your eyes peeled for the last two over the next couple of weeks…
Best Coast – Crazy for You
This L.A indie rock band are a blend of classic surf-rock and 1960s girl-groups. Fronted by singer-songwriter and guitarist Bethany Cosentino, each fuzzy pop song comes in at under three minutes. It’s simple catchy pop, with perfect melodies layered with reverb and distortion. Songs about longing for a boyfriend and wishing her cat could talk make this a perfect lo-fi, lovesick summer album that you can listen to all year round.
