What’s the Shabazz Palaces LP Cover Made Of?

Posted by on Jul 20, 2011 | Comments (0)

I’ve got this aversion to foam that’s reached laughable proportions; I just can’t touch the stuff. So when I slipped the plastic off the new Shabazz Palaces LP, I nearly dropped it. What the hell is this foam-like foamness that the foam-a-licious Shabazz Palaces cover is made out of?

According to Dumb Eyes, he design team behind the record, it’s black ink printed on shark skin paper. Shark skin paper? Who knew there was such a thing?

Anyway, the record’s good—it’s Butterfly from Digable Planets on some futuristic shit—but after five listens the beats are still the best part. Did anyone see him when he played Hopmonk last year?

In the meantime, keep that furry record away from me. I’m wearin’ latex gloves every time I listen to it.
