We’re what you might call map obsessives. Tube maps, Ordnance Survey, atlases – you’re always find us studiously analysing something or other to this effect, because quite frankly we just find the way they compact so much into so little fascinating. We like to know where our little locale fits into the world.
And when it comes to a great album cover, going by our obsession, bunging a map on the front of your new LP wins you a lot of brownie points from us. So hurrah Saint Etienne, who’ve done exactly that! We were already excited for Words and Music based on the brilliant Tonight, but now we’re positively on the edge of our seat for it.
