If you thought that psychedelic cover art was a thing of the past (hold on, make that cover art, full stop) – think again, because everything is ripe for a comeback sooner or later these days. Enter Leif Podhajsky, the man and mind behind open-mouthed faux marble effects, mind-boggling colour twistings and all kinds of hallucinatory optical weirdnesses that have graced the covers of Tame Impala, Shabazz Palaces, The Horrors, Lykke Li and the Foals, to name but a few. Not my cup of tea, I would have thought, but then again, when it’s spiced with all kinds of wonderful things, then hey… For more over-saturated wide-eyed wonders, swallow this pill.
