These LoAF releases boast a strong unified aesthetic despite including a variety of different formats and individual artwork. The combination of materials is great in creating the impression of a lo-fi, hand-assembled artefact that turns out to be more of a 'pack' than an individual music release. Plus, aside from the designers' own excellent input, the whole project from the Lo Recordings offshoot is a considered attempt to commission new imagery by other illustrators/artists to compliment particular pieces of music.
