IT SEEMS THAT YOU CAN TELL a lot from album cover art. When looking at the Warp Records output it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Boards of Canada, judged solely by their cover art, are going to be some form of ambience. On the Come To Daddy EP Aphex Twin successfully warns us that the title track will be hardcore influenced. Plaid's release Rest Proof Clockwork there is a graffiti filled backdrop that echoes the b-boy influenced breaks of the record.
