The Kid Mud Cover Art

Perhaps you have been listening to the new EP from Kid Mud, Birds Will Move In, which came out on N&UR earlier this week. Perhaps you've noticed the lovely cover art.

The cover was designed by Souther Salazar, an LA based artist whose work has been shown in New York and Los Angeles, while being featured in Giant Robot.

Kid Mud mastermind Sean Duncan knew he wanted his friend Salazar to design the cover, which was chosen from a selection of paintings. "The title [Birds Will Move In] came from me waiting for him to get home from the gym," Duncan says. "I was sitting in my car and writing down just lines from what I heard on the radio. when he got there i had a list to pick from and that one went best with the artwork. it was almost called Hands on a Hot Oven but it didn't work with the artwork."

For more on Salazar, check out this interview at Fecal Face. Also, check out the animated video - Stop Looking at Me - done in a series for Above the Influence.

That artwork has a sweetness that makes one want to buy the album. That can't be bad.
