Kapp (1970)

The last label design deployed by Kapp before being fully absorbed into MCA records-and the latter's spiritless presentation-is also my favorite. Post day-glo sherbert color bars and circles of a magnified Kapp logo give off a strange, empty warmth that seemingly defined the endless bummer of the first part of the decade like so much forgotten wallpaper. Kapp's last take.

Linda Perhacs' sublime Parallelograms is a subtle, gauzy and windswept femme psych trip that-save for one other modestly obscure title I can think of-is unmatched in the genre. But you already knew that, right?
