Throwing Muses - Anthology

This compilation for the famous indie band gets (logically) released on 4AD, with a beautiful CD limited edition. The tracks for the first CD have been selected by the band, and the second CD features a collection of B-sides and rare tracks. The collage is either enigmatic and a nice way to visualize this assortment of souvenirs. The ensemble produces a slight retro feeling, thanks to the way the type comes cramped into a black block : this reminds of the days of punk and early new wave graphic design (à la Terry Jones) while remaining modern and elegant.
The Art direction of this release is the work of David Narcizo at Lakuna Design, David being the former drummer of Throwing Muses, now heading his own graphic design studio, based in Newport.
