Eno interview in the Indy (including some shocking typos !):

Not a wildly exciting interview, but good to see he's still at it. I'm interested to hear this 'Lux' album.

I wish somebody would take the cover art process out of his hands. Milk Sea was promising on that front but, really, after the brilliantly bang-on work on the ambient series, there's no excuse for his recent visual work on CD covers. And I guess the Indie laid off some proof readers as you noted! Also, when the English end a proclamation with "Don't they?" or "Aren't they?" then surely a good journalist should take that as a challenge to counter and make things interesting. That said, looking forward to hearing it.

I agree, those Warp covers are pretty ghastly, but that's their aesthetic isn't it ? :)

Well, considering the covers of Kite Stories etc., I'm pretty sure Eno had his hand on the tiller for this one! Just got the pre-order download and have to say it's really nice. I liked his last collab too, Drums Between the Bells.
