Art of the Cover - Yuka Honda's "Heart Chamber Phantoms" (2010)







No, the cover artwork is not at all super-wierd!

And no, this chick's not japanese.

Oops, sorry ... seems she is!
  
The, erm ... idiosyncratic artwork was created by Hot Popper, Charlotte Kemp Muhl from The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger.

And here be the slab of left-of-leftfield arty electronica, "Heart Chamber Phantoms", the rather good third solo outing from Cibo Matto head honcho. Yuka Honda.

Ex-boyfriend Sean Lennon (a Beatle son ... Ringo's kid I think) provided two songs.







Yuka was a busy little lass here, being responsible for recording, mixing and production.

Oh, and also pro-tools.

And keyboards. And sampling.

... And bass. And guitar.

... ... And tenorion (wha?)

... ... ... And percussion.

... ... ... And vocals!
