RIYL: Twin Peaks; the tv show
Label: Fainting Room Records
This is a very cool set. Not only is the music killer and sort of all over the genres of rock and experimental, but each band was partnered with a Seattle artist who developed the record sleeve design for that band.
In total you get 6 7″s from heavy hitters like:
He Whose Ox Is Gored
The Family Curse
In total the series comes together in a way to highlight just how awesome and badass this collective really is. I love that as a group they focus on art in general and not just music. Definitely click through the link and check out the art work. I just spent the last hour getting lost in the individual visual artists’ websites.
For those of you in Seattle you also have a shot and tracking down one of these on Record Store Day.
Also if you are near Seattle then you should definitely check out the live band showcase part of this project at Chop Suey on May 20.
Sly writer Dylan Tracy will have a featured music review of this set up later this week. Definitely check that out as well!
Pushing artistic collaboration to produce a bad-ass piece of art is in our blood. In 2014 and 2015 we're pairing six Seattle bands with six Seattle visual artists to create the music and art for a box-set of six 7 inch albums. The boxset will be in retail stores Record Store Day, April 16th, 2016
Online orders ship with a black cotton screen-printed tote bag. The box set will also be available in limited supply in Seattle record stores for Record Store Day April, 16th 2016.
