COVER ART OF THE WEEK: Osees are an incredibly prolific band based in Los Angeles that are led by the talented songwriter and musician John Dwyer. Since beginning in the late 90s as a solo project for Dwyer they have evolved through the years, frequently changing line-ups as well as the band name. Their “Intercepted Message” album, released in 2023 on In the Red Records, is a tour de force in sound as well as packaging. Issued in different limited editions with varying vinyl colors, it featured striking artwork by Wes Greaves on both the front and back covers as well as the inner sleeve. An insert with track listings, song lyrics and credits is also included. (Click on image to enlarge)
