Lex Complex Vol. 1 vinyl
True to form, Lex Records is releasing a lovingly designed record of exclusive tracks to celebrate its 10th birthday next week. The release takes the form of a picture disc housed in a screenprinted plastic sleeve...
Actually, the label turned 10 years old in autumn last year and commissioned artist and filmmaker (and previous CR One To Watch) Yu Sato to create artwork for a 10th anniversary campaign that involved creating two limited edition screenprints showcasing artwork inspired, apparently by the patterning formed of geometrical lines merging and overlapping on a British ten pound note.
Sato incorporated the the design into the compilation and the result is very nice indeed:
Complex Vol. 1 is released next week on April 23 through Lex and features 10 exclusive tracks by Jel, Boom Bip, Danger Mouse & Jemini, and DOOM with Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood, and more.
Love the detail in this. Do you have any previews of releases for Record Store Day on Sat?
