Mock LP Cover: Oahu without you

"Oahu without you," a mock record album cover by Vena Paylo

Through the magical powers of Photoshop, I’ve mashed up a vintage Hawaiian travel poster, text and grunge…and the result is an imagined record album cover I’ve entitled “Oahu without you.”

As soon as I thought of the album name I was surprised this album didn’t exist already.  This “record” would have all the uke, vibes and sway of typical vintage Polynesian music, but the tracks would all be sad and lonely ballads about being in a tropical paradise without the one you love.  Ironically, it would sound a lot like side one of The Polynesians “Hawaiian Wedding Song.

Once the sea salty tears have dried the next album needs to have more of a “take this paradise and shove it” attitude.
