This month’s album cover pick is the somewhat controversial cover of Slaine’s somewhat controversial album The King of Everything Else. As I mention in my review of the album elsewhere In Septembers Vandala Magazine(page 13), Slaine is firing on all cylinders with this record and his ability at crafting dark narratives and soundscapes and peppering them with his well honed and gritty flow, has never been more impressive than on King.
Slaine’s an interesting figure in that he’s probably known by two different crowds for two different things. On the one hand he is, as of late, a sort of go-to for large, intimidating thug’s in Boston-set crime flicks.
