‘Human Music’ Will Feature Album Artwork By Artist Dean Arscott
Cousin Earth, one of the rising stars of Brooklyn’s current “Jam Renaissance,” have announced the 2018 release of their long awaited full-length album, “Human Music.” The album will feature artwork by Dean Arscott, a Florida artist known for his sand sculpture and illustrations, most notably, the album art for Dopapod’s “Drawn Onward” and “Redivider.”
With both an original repertoire and a vast array of covers, Cousin Earth brings both a sense of playfulness and technical ability to the music they perform. From shredding ukulele solos and 4-part vocal breakdowns to interweaving themed medleys, the band is sure to catch the attention of any music lover. Presenting a multitude of styles including Rock, Fusion, Ragtime, Funk, Latin, Bluegrass, Hip Hop, and EDM, no musical style is off-limits for this up-and-coming live act.
“Human Music,” will feature 10 new original songs that weave in and out of many genres giving listeners much of the music that humanity has to offer. The art concept imagines the band as extraterrestrial beings wearing human costumes, elating the audience while invading their minds with out-of-this world musical stylings. The album will be available on all platforms sometime in early 2018.
“We were really impressed with Dean’s artwork for both Dopapod and our friends NoNeed,” says Joey Calfa, who plays ukulele and guitar in Cousin Earth. “His style compliments our weird sci-fi aesthetic perfectly. We were so excited, we just had to share it!”
