Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile

Lotta Sea Lice is a collaborative studio album by Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, released in 2017.

Danny Cohen approached Never Now with an attractive vice versa image of the artists and a pile of polaroids, in need of a treatment to complete the album. Feeding off the the image that was to appear on the back of the album, we based our concept around a book of 1970's high school photography, and invited Barnett into the studio to pencil the final graphics. The LP opens vertically from the centre to reveal an array of images and annotations from the recording studio.
