Some of the most notable musical works can be immediately recognized through their cover art. A musician’s artwork acts as the first mark of value for their music and creates an initial impression of the music’s message, genre, and more. With the decline in sales of physical mediums of music and the rise of streaming, HOT VOX thinks it’s important to acknowledge the beauty of cover art so that artistry of it is not lost in the changing industry.
Today’s ‘Art Appreciation’ is ALCOHOL by JOE MYLWARD
