For Perfume Genius' October 2014 performance in Sacramento, I tried out something I'd been wanting to do for a while: a poster that used translucence to create the impression of depth on a single sheet of paper. To achieve this effect, I created the design in two layers: a full-color design for the front-facing side of a piece of heavy vellum and a second side with the show information printed in 100% black in reverse. By designing the two sides to work together, the black information peeks through the design on the front of the vellum, thus creating a kind of old apothecary window effect. This jpeg simulates the effect, but it really must be seen in person to really grasp the effect.

The ranking doesn’t include compilations or live albums, although I am including Dead Letter Office because … Read More

It’s an ace new slate of indie disco and house in a more chill mode and it is going to sound straight up perfect at the beach … Read More
In the summer of 2015, I received an email out of the blue from a production company in Ireland working on a 6-part TV series about “a creative bunch of teenagers who get together to start a band. The group embark on a journey out of their rural town and onto a national stage.” It … Read More
13, Broke, Curious, Bored The moment is indelibly burnt into my memory. Every Sunday morning, I’d pick through the day’s edition of the Omaha World Herald, digging through sooty inserts and box store circulars to more or less fixate on the comics, entertainment section, the ads. What I ultimately was after were the record store flyouts: rows … Read More
