history and culture upcoming releases Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young released Deja Vu in March of 1970. Since then the album has served as a source of inspiration for artists of all forms. Artist Cory Argangel is one of them.

The Beatle’s Sergeant Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band was released on June 1 1967 and was their eighth studio album. Not only a groundbreaking release in the music and production industry, the album also presented a new stylistic design and served as an influence for later artistic work inclding that of artist Howie Green.

The month of may brings plenty of new releases for musicians and with that comes there new jackets and plenty room for artistic exploration. These artists include Beach House, Santana, Adam Lambert, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Sigur Ros.

from the editor T

his being the first copy of The Jacket, I would like to take this oppurtunity to share the purpose and mission of this magazine. Here at The Jacket we appreciate all things art. We are fans of music, we are fans of art, and I am an artist and musician myslef. The magazine sets out to observe, examine, and discuss music and the artwork that is often created simultaneously. With the release of almost every album comes an album cover, or as it was called back in the days of vinyl records, a jacket. The cover of an album does not just create itself, yet it is often strategically designed. Whether it is meant to have a specific meaning, or was produced with a particular inspiration, we would like to examine and appreciate the artistic process that went into the development of such art and the significance of the art itself. Albums also often come with a book of artwork that the magazine considers valuable to the music. Not only are albums often released with artwork, but the music or art often inspires more art, and The Jacket would also like to appreciate, study, and showcase such work. Whether it is artwork from an album released decades ago, or just recently released , the magazine would like to explore the work. Through feature articles and interviews with artists, designers, and musicians, The Jacket takes the oppurtunity to appreciate music and the art it creates. It also would like to inform readers of the work and hopefully inspire to make art of their own. Sincerly,

music is art. art is music.
