Originally from London but now living in Melbourne Samuel Johnson has designed the album artwork and/or visuals for a lot of musicians that I listen to such as Dpat, Wayward, Ta-ku, Atu, MS MR, Stwo, XXYYXX, JMSN and so on. His cover for Ta-Ku’s upcoming EP Songs to Break Up to (out October 8th in digital/vinyl via HW&W and Sunday Records) reminds me a bit of Nick Knight’s photography of flowers and, at a stretch, Peter Saville’s album cover design for New Order’s Power Corruption and Lies. I like the balance between the depth created by the darker areas around the flowers and the flowers themselves. It seems to enhance the rich colours.
