BLACK SPIRITUALS "BLACK TREATMENT" EP




























Above: Black Spirituals "Black Treatment" CS. Design by A. Turner using original art elements by F. Coloccia.

Haven't been able to do as much design work as I'd like lately, so I was happy when the opportunity arose to create the sleeve for a tour CS EP by Black Spirituals. For now it's a cassette only release and currently available for order here. Thanks to Black Spirituals for asking me to do this, and to Faith for providing some excellent source materials! New Black Spirituals studio album in the works for later this year, also due for release via SIGE.


Recent enriching intake: ENDON - live, Black Spirituals - live, Sarah Ferrick - "Odette" and various comics, Champagne Mirrors "Extended Communication Techniques", Mount Eerie "Clear Moon", Circle "Pharaoh Overlord", Stilla "Ensamhetens Andar", Klaus Lang "einfalt. still.", Luigi Archetti "Null III", etc.
