M.I.A. (Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam) is a British singer-songwriter, rapper and record producer whose eclectic compositions combine elements of hip hop, electronica, dance, avante-garde, alternative and world music. She uses some very interesting sounds and samples in her music, and I really appreciate her albums.
Her song "Steppin Up" on MAYA always makes me chuckle a bit -- the power tool samples make this song reminiscent of some sort of Tim Allen (Home Improvement) level drug binge hahah. As far as the album art goes, it's all certainly very busy and colorful, isn't it? I feel like these garish covers are definitely appropriate for the music, and they're fun to look at, as well.
This is a short post today, so I'll let you guys do the talking. What do you think of M.I.A. or her album art?
