When you combine cover art from controversial painter Steven Johnson Leyba and the sounds of Georgio “The Dove Valentino”, you’re bound to have an album that’s a cut above the rest. Valentino operates in the space between several forms (song-and-dance, performance art, belles lettres and institutional critique) and several genres (torch song, soundtrack, Kraut-rock, country-and-western, surf, lo-fi and high-concept avant-garde). The latest album, Mille Plateaux, is no different, with experimental melodies and mind-blowing instrumentals.

Check out the incredible cover art below, too. Four different original portraits that keep the mind guessing.
