Table of Contents
#1. RAY BLK – ACCESS DENIED
First is Ray Blk’s Access Denied, which has an album cover displaying the artist’s face in blue and pink lighting.
It may have just been a simple shot of her profile, but thanks to the lighting, the make up, and of course her expressive eyes, we got something tantalizing.
#2. PALISDED – MUSICAL GUEST MIX AT UPLINK
Palisded’s Musical Guest Mix At Uplink deserves to be on this list of good-looking vinyl + cassette bundles.
Aside from the great music, the aesthetic is just insane. The album cover features the artist, but only in the cartoon version. It is very consistent with how she doesn’t reveal her eyes using sunglasses.
The red and black color scheme of the album and the font takes us back to the 80s.
#3. CREEPING DEATH – THE EDGE OF EXISTENCE
If you’re a fan of collecting albums with awesome covers, then this is something you need to have.
Creeping Death’s The Edge of Existence has a rather cool piece of album art. It looks surreal—like a road with rocks on one side and clouds on the other and at the end is what seems to be a black hole, or the edge of existence.
The custom vinyl record for this album is awesome too with the alternating red and white with black splatters.
#4. TRUUS – DAWN OF PERDITION
One of the best vinyl + cassette bundles to collect is Truus’ Dawn of Perdition.
The two versions have separate artworks for their covers which makes it cool and it even has an eerie feeling to it.
The vinyl album has a black and white cover and black vinyl record while the cassette album has a dominating red cover and a blood red cassette tape.
#5. LITTLE MIX – BETWEEN US
Little Mix’ Between Us is their first ever compilation album and is their first album to be released with only three members.
The theme for the vinyl version is colorful and flowery with them dressed in colored clothes and surrounded with different kinds of colorful flowers.
The cassette tape version, however, is chill with the three members wearing neutral or nude colors with a bare and white background.
#6. OLIVER SIM – HIDEOUS BASTARD
Hideous Bastard by Oliver Sim is his first solo album which was released this year.
The cover for both the vinyl and cassette versions of the album features Sim with his face covered with the letters that spelled the album’s title and some blood.
For the vinyl version, the vinyl record is colored blood red, while the cassette version is a white with blood splatter.
#7. JAMES ARTHUR – IT’LL ALL MAKE SENSE IN THE END
It’ll All Make Sense in the End is James Arthur’s fourth full length studio album released last year.
The artwork for the album cover is a scene of what seems to be the end of the world.
What’s cooler about this album is the pink and violet combination of the custom colored vinyl record that looks very cosmic.
And the tapes? Just equally awesome.
#8. GLASS ANIMALS – DREAMLAND
Glass Animals’ Dreamland is a must-have album.
Both its vinyl and cassette versions are just perfect for you to display along with your other collections. What’s even better is that this vinyl + cassette bundle is a glow in the dark one.
We think so.
FYI, we can customize a glow-in-the dark vinyl for you.
#9. YEARS & YEARS – NIGHT CALL
Olly Alexander, also known as Years & Years, released his highly anticipated third album Night Call.
The album cover features an illustration of Olly as a merman sitting on a rock surrounded by the ocean.
To go with the cover, the vinyl record and cassette tape were colored with a deep blue color to match the ocean.
#10. PAVEMENT – SLANTED AND ENCHANTED
In celebration of Pavement’s full-length debut album, Slanted and Enchanted, the band released a vinyl + cassette bundle which features its original album cover.
The vinyl album has a custom colored vinyl record using the colors from the album cover, and so does the cassette tape.
The album is a limited one and will be released this August 12.
#11. THE MIDNIGHT – MONSTERS
Monsters by The Midnight is one of those worth collecting custom vinyl records and cassette tapes.
They’ve got an awesome album cover as well as well-designed custom colored vinyl records and cassette tapes.
For the vinyl album, there’s the night version of the album cover, while the cassette tape has both the night and sunset version.
#12. RINA SAWAYAMA – HOLD THE GIRL
Last on the list is Rina Sawayama’s Hold the Girl, which follows her well renowned debut album SAWAYAMA.
The cover features Rina in all black statement outfit that resembles some sort of rotten onion.
Both the cassette tape and vinyl records really look good as it compliments the colored cover with its white colored vinyl record and grayish transparent custom cassette tape.
And that was our list of twelve of the most good-looking vinyl + cassette bundles.
