Vinyl Therapy: The War On Drugs & Goldfrapp

Graphics from the 2011 "Slave Ambient" double LP by The War On Drugs.

This is an album I've been enjoying for quite a while.  Its release was followed by a great show at The Hammerstein Ballroom in the Summer of 2010. (Clicking the "Goldfrapp" tag below should bring you to those photos).  

I didn't purchase the vinyl of this gem until recently, however... and I am very glad that I did.  These images show the gatefold sleeve of the Vinyl-CD-Poster pack for "Head First", which was the band's send up of all things late disco and early 80s pop.  Think FM radio 1981, with a little bit of balladry and a few more ambient sounds thrown in.
