Album Cover of the Week: Richard Swift’s Dressed Up for the Letdown


There’s something about this beautiful black-and-white landscape, looking something like a scene from the Himalayas but without the snow, and Swift in the foreground wearing a native handmade blanket across his shoulders, kicking his right foot up and tilting his head back just a bit, holding in his right hand a bundle of soft white balloons that contrast starkly with the dark, jagged peak behind them. So very odd and mystical.
