The Crying Game

This image so makes us want to start a caption contest—Mummified Remains of Dandy Found, Flowers in Hair Causes Old Japanese Man to Sneeze—but that would probably be a little disrespectful to Antony & The Johnsons. The portrait of legendary Butoh dancer Kazuo Ohno from 1977 is actually the cover art for their latest album, The Crying Light, dropping January 20. (You may remember we showed you a similar cover for their last EP.) Here's what Antony has to say: "In performance I watched Kazuo Ohno cast a circle of light upon the stage, and step into that circle, and reveal the dreams and reveries of his heart. He seemed to dance in the eye of something mysterious and creative. With every gesture he embodied the child and the feminine divine. He's kind of like my art parent."
