Experimental rap group clipping. went for a clear-cut image to front their album CLPPNG, released earlier this year via Sub Pop.

The image is possibly a comment on how the musical outfit sees themselves—breaking through (or into) the hip-hop scene, as if it was a ring-fenced gathering. The warped net works effectively as an image, or possibly a portrait, but has been rendered useless in keeping intruders at bay. Enter clipping.
