An image of the album cover design for Butterfly 3001. A thin yellow rectangle in the top-right corner shows the album name with a yellow butterfly beneath it. On the right side of the rectangle are the band’s initials, “KGLW,” and beneath that is a serial code, “KGLW-014-2LP.” A white circle is in the center of the image where the label would go on the center of a vinyl LP. The bottom half of the label is cyan, and within it reads “King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard.” The top half has a red semicircle with the album title on it. On the left and right sides of the circular label are a red and cyan butterfly respectively, each within a small yellow circle. Beneath the red butterfly is the serial number again, and beneath the cyan butterfly is text which reads “Side A.” The rest of the album cover displays a field of white and a flurry of red, yellow, and dark blue butterflies all flying towards the top left corner of the cover.

By Shack Khoza Music Journalist Soul-Stirring Country Music is how I would describe the album See You Next Time by Joshua Ray Walker. This album is for those who adore heartwarming country music, or for those who live in rural areas while listening to good music while working out in the fields. To go even further, it’s also a great stepping stone for listeners who despise country music because of […]
