People Blend Themselves In With Vinyls


4cratediggers

Since retro is the new hot nowadays, vinyl is starting its great comeback. So if you are a vinyl junkie or your parents have a big collection of the greatest ’80s hits, this could be your next great opportunity. People across the Internet unleash their creativity by paying homage to vinyl cover art and bringing it to life in a new context. Following the trend, people are obscuring or augmenting their body parts with record sleeves causing an entertaining illusion captured on photos before digital collages were cool.

Although it remains unknown who is the mastermind behind this concept, it is said that the “Sleeveface” phenomenon was started in 2007 by Welsh DJ Carl Morris with a Paul McCartney sleeve while he was having a little fun in a bar and rapidly became a source of worldwide craze. When the trend evolved, sleeveface.com, launched by Morris and his friend John Rostron, became a home for a quirky community of enthusiasts precisely covering their faces and other body parts which resulted in an artistic, vivid and hilarious compilation of pictures. And sometimes, they take the art on favorite covers to a whole new level.

If you have a face, an old vinyl sleeve and a camera – join the movement by seamlessly blending with your favorite artist. Check out this list of the best sleevefaces for inspiration!

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now Spinning: Tracey Thorn – Record ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I still haven’t picked up the EBTG ‘Amplified Heart’ reissue. I’m consoling myself with ‘Record’. A recommendation from my fave Toronto record store @popmusicto (Cheers, lovely!) and in my top ten records of last year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Favourite track: Dancefloor. Any track that celebrates a night out, having drinks and dancing with your besties is ok with me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wait. Is it pronounced ‘Record’ or ‘Record’? Right. Ok. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #traceythorn #record #electro #dance #pop #vinyl #record #recordcollection #recordcollection #vinyllove #vinyljunkie #vinyladdict #recordcollectionpost #sleeveface #nowspinning #soundtrackofmylife #musiconvinyl #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #igvinylclub

Imagino que todos conheçam o Phil Collins, mas vamos para uma apresentação rápida, especialmente aos desavisados: trata-se de um músico britânico, um dos líderes do Genesis, colaborou com trabalhos de artistas como Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Elton John, Sting, ABBA, Bee Gees, Peter Gabriel, Ringo Starr, Tears for Fears, John Lennon, Robert Plant, entre outros. Tocou bateria na icônica apresentação do Led Zeppelin no Live Aid; inclusive foi o único músico britânico a performar nas edições estadunidense e inglesa deste mesmo festival filantrópico e eles aconteceram simultaneamente. Ele tocou em um e pegou o avião para imediatamente tocar no outro; sua imagem estava no auge, em termos de mainstream, de tal modo que também fez fama atuando em programas televisivos, bem como no cinema. Uma biografia bem razoável né!? Mas hoje quero destacar a carreira solo dele: teve início em 1981 com o disco Face Value, atingindo o topo das listas radiofônicas e da MTV com a canção In the Air Tonight. Na mesma época das apresentações no Live Aid, que mencionei acima, ele estava divulgando este LP da foto, o No Jacket Required; é o terceiro álbum de inéditas, lançado em 1985. Para muito críticos, este é considerado o trabalho mais relevante de sua trajetória solo, já que levou dois Grammy nas categorias de álbum do ano e melhor performance vocal pop masculino. Além disso, entrou na lista dos álbuns definitivos feita por membros do Rock and Roll Hall of Fame… #PhilCollins #Genesis #PaulMcCartney #EricClapton #GeorgeHarrison #EltonJohn #Sting #ABBA #BeeGees #PeterGabriel #RingoStarr #TearsforFeras #JohnLennon #RobertPlant #LedZeppelin #LiveAid #mtv #nojacketrequired #grammy #intheairtonight #lp #vinyl #vitrola #vinil #lptododia #sleeveface

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We all get hurt by love and we all have a cross to bear.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now Spinning: Kylie Minogue – Confide In Me (12” remixes) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first version of this song I heard was the ‘Big Brothers’ Mix. It was premiered on a late night show on Radio One. Quite frankly, I could not believe what I was hearing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The last we’d heard from Kylie was ‘Celebration’. I don’t think anyone really expected such a departure. ‘Confide In Me’ is brilliant, and took her off in a completely different direction. I’m not sure we’d still have Kylie around and recording without this song. It feels that important in her discography. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of hearing it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kylieminogue #confideinme #brothersinrhythm #pop #dance #remixes #vinyl #record #recordcollection #recordcollection #vinyllove #vinyljunkie #vinyladdict #recordcollectionpost #disturbing #sleeveface #nowspinning #soundtrackofmylife #musiconvinyl #vinylcommunity #vinyligclub #igvinylclub #reunited

Sunday Sleeveface: Dennis Wilson – Pacific Ocean Blue (1977, Caribou Records/ 2010, MOV) Dennis Wilson war Mitbegründer der Beach Boys und der Drummer, auch wenn er eher selten auf Studio-Alben zu hören war. Er inspirierte Brian dazu, Songs über's Surfen zu schreiben. Pacific Ocean Blue ist sein erstes Studioalbum. Bei YouTube gibt es eine Doku über sein Leben, die sehr empfehlenswert ist #sleeveface #denniswilson #beachboys #pacificoceanblue #rock #vinylcommunity #vinyloftheday #nowplaying #ilovediscogs #whiterabbit #ontheturntable #nowspinning #albumoftheday #vinylcollectionpost #vinyljunkie #vinyl #ihaveathingforvinyl #poo #vinyllove #huntvinyl #wearevinyl #supportindierecordstores #vinyllovers #recordstore
