Petaluma thrift score; soundtrack to ‘The Eyes of Laura Mars’ on vinyl with a gatefold sleeve that will most likely be hung open on the wall. #vacayshun #barbrastreisand #michaelzagerband #eyesoflauramars
We’ve got another practice space demo to share with you because it’s Friday and we all deserve a treat, don’t we? Clocking in at less than two minutes, “Iron Lung” is about fun stuff like illness and mortality and weird religion. Total party song! Chriso tried to hide his tail-end-of-a-nasty-flu-bug-ravaged voice by attempting to do a bit of Mark E. Smith-ing with his vocals minus the cool English accent. Click below for lyric fun times.
Many of us just look at the various Tumblrs we follow on the handy dashboard, so we wanted to make a post specifically about these fantastic designs that the very talented Heinz Aimer made for us to use online and everywhere. Heinz lives in Berlin (that’s Germany, kids) and after collaborating with Chriso via many Facebook messages (in which Chriso learned he is crap at communicating visual ideas with words and finally sent along inspirational examples), he sent over a veritable cornucopia of gorgeous designs. So many that it was tricky to narrow it down and we felt all ‘Sophie’s Choice’ for a minute, but less dire. We finally decided on the stunning banner above with the two-color logo and the bold avatar that you can see in teeny-tiny form on your dashboard. We’re also super psyched to incorporate these designs (and maybe a few of the unused ones!) into all sorts of merch and definitely as artwork for future releases. And our Facebook page looks all the better for Heinz’s designs, despite Facebook’s general ugh-ness. We’re incredibly grateful to Heinz for sharing his talent and hard work on behalf of our humble band. We feel so iconic now! Seriously, your eyeballs want to look at them again and again.
You can feast your eyes on more of Heinz’s work on his Tumblr and purchase some of his designs for your very own via his shop at Society 6. Thank you again, Heinz. You rock!
