Cover Art Tuesday: Big D & The Kids Table, Leatherface, Nightlights…vote now!

Remember when buying an album meant something more than adding a dozen audio files to an already endless collection of impersonal mp3s? It was a time when liner notes actually got read and there was something really special about the art that graced an album’s cover. Today, in an industry dominated by iTunes and Pandora, it seems the cover art of an album is getting a little under-appreciated. Well, we here at Dying Scene aren’t letting the art form die off so easily.

Whether bizarre, beautiful, thought provoking, or hilarious, each Tuesday we will present the most interesting album covers of the week and let you readers vote on which one you think should win “Best Cover Art of the Week!”

Check out the offerings for the week of July 5th right here and get voting!
