They say not to judge a book by its cover, but sometimes it’s hard to remain impartial! Take the art for Paul Cherry’s new album, Flavour: a random parallelogram in the background intersects with a Rolex Oyster bracelet, but instead of a normal watch face there is a cherry with a taichi symbol in its cross-section. The music therein is a perfect match for this parody of ‘90s aesthetics. Quite frankly, this record wears its intoxicating nostalgia on its sleeve.
