Best of 2012: Nice Cover, Great Music

My name is Moritz Grünke. I am an artist based in Berlin, working with riso printing and design. I am very into artzines, which is why I write a blog about self-publishing artists, and I am one half of the small press called Gloria Glitzer (with Franiska Brandt). I also support the Free Music Archive as a community curator.

Nice Cover is my collection of great sounds and beautiful cover artworks that I really enjoy. It's a blog dedicated to free music, mostly under Creative Commons, and I also encourage supporting the artists via flattr, donations, purchases and other means.


Favorite Creative Commons Albums of 2012:

Goto80 and the Uwe Schenk Band - The Ferret Show (Up it Up Records)

abc100 - exit site (Headphonica)

Machine Death - Machine Death (Wood and Wire)
download from the FMA

Plastic Jazz Orchestra - 39° (Headphonica / 2419)

SunWalker - Yoncalla (dontrustheruin)
Lucky Dragons - Existers (Swill Children)

I still run this blog dedicated to creative commons music with great cover art but i moved it to Because it’s more comfortable for me to post things and it’s easier for readers/listeners to find and browse it. I still love the FMA and i will continue adding cc music to the archive…

I agree with jason, great choices you've made. I've been mesmerized by the Custodian of Records cover since I downloaded the album.
