Ten Raddest Album Covers of the Internet Era: Daft Punk, Cut Copy, Booka Shade, and More

If you're old enough to remember vinyl LPs, then you know that album design used to be an art unto itself. Who doesn't fondly remember rolling a fatty across the face of iconic sleeves such as the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band or Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon?
But today, with digital downloads dominating the market, even people like Peter Saville, who designed legendary cover art for the likes of Joy Division and New Order, have suggested the album cover is dead in the new millennium.

That said, there are plenty of electro, house, and techno artists putting out awesome artwork. And with Basel week upon us, we present Crossfade's ten raddest electronic music album covers of the internet era.
