There's been so much love for the Behind the Art features here on The 405 that we've decided to do something a bit more regular on album artwork and packaging. We'll be looking at amazing album covers, beautiful hand-made packaging and the kind of limited-edition special packages that will have you buying them before you've even heard the band.

If you're new to the world of Ghost Box Records, you really need to take a deep breath, dive in and come out with a bagful of records. They're right up there with Factory and 4AD in terms of creating a definitive (and hugely stylish) aesthetic for the label - you know when you're looking at a Ghost Box album just as much as you know when you're listening to one.

This new album from The Soundcarriers, designed as usual by Julian House (Ghost Box's designer as well as the madcap genius behind The Focus Group), looks like a '70s library test record, all red swirls and crisp, elegant type, and looks amazing in the 180g vinyl edition. And the music? Broadcast-style psychedelia mixed with Stereolab's knowing Gallic cool and a slice of motorik rhythms - thanks very much.
