Cover art of Lankum’s 2023 album False Lankum, featuring the four members of the band in a sepia-toned, partially out-of-focus image above an excerpt of abstract art with the band name and title superimposed above, in a layout reminiscent of Vaughan Oliver’s designs for the 4AD record label in the 1980s and ’90s.

I thought Lankum were releasing a new album, not reissuing their mid-’90s debut on 4AD. #image
