Francis International Airport / Rainer Spangl


I really like Francis International Airport’s new album “In the Woods” (2010). The music is great, gives me the thrills – the whole album sounds exceptional. As graphic designer of course the outer appearance is of interest as well. And I must say the coverartwork really blew me away. It shows a detail out of a painting by the viennese painter Rainer Spangl (more below). If you take a look at his other paintings the choice definetly makes sence in connection with the album’s title.

The artwork for their single is also something else. One of the bandmembers told me that they made the cover themselfs by taking a picture of a picture. Inicially I had planned a similar approach to Minor Sick’s album-artwork but when I saw their’s I had to change plans. Below you can hear the album’s second single “Feet of Clay” – really like it, enjoy
