Just various post about everything from Art work and Photos of mine to Vinyls or other random stuff.
Artwork and Layout Autism – Film Noir was released digitaly and on vinyl. All images below are from the vinyl release. About the Art work We are all carrying natural negative emotions which takes various forms and magnitudes from time to time that often leads to no goods. Even with this knowledge we don´t seems be able to escape our determinism of emotions. About Autism The band is a instrumental post-rock/post-metal band from Vilnius, Lithuania. Visit them at: Facebook Listen to them at: Bandcamp Or at Spotify
Rosk – Miasma. Art work and Layout. Released on CD (digipack) also used on various social media etc. Images below include some photos of the actual physical release and digital images used. As a bonus i added a short simple video, hopefully there you will be able to see how it all fits together. What is hard to see in pictures is the CD since of the flash and the white balance is a bit messed up on the photos. About the Art work The Album in short tells a story of the plague. So After loosing everyone close and the whole village to the plague. He was fortunate enough not to get infected and his last hope was to start a new life in another village. But […]
Prey For Teeth – From The Dry Edge Of The Shore LP, Limited Edition, Yellow/Brown With Black Haze(100 made) This album makes me so nostalgic and sentimental. I love how the vocals fits the beautiful and calming music.
Light Bearer – Silver Tongue Repress limited to 150x. The unfinished saga(still hoping for a release somehow of Act III). I know i touched on this before but Light Bearer(and Alex CF) is such a huge influence for me and my art. Not only in the visual aspect, even although they really are completely different styles. But the music and the album´s concept is something that really has gotten to me. Its the ultimate underdog story with so much depth. When looking holding and looking at art like this i get so inspired to keep making art of my own. At the last picture you can see the sad ‘adjutment’ the postal service contributed to.
Album Cover Art How I met Lauren – With the Blessing of Satan Im happy to be a part of How I met Lauren – With the Blessing of Satan. I have made the concept and the cover art(not the logo) The art work is about the feeling about not being able to be ‘sufficiently enough’ in life, Trying to stay above the surface. With this feeling, in desperation hoping for powers outside your self to help or at least bring a change. You can listen and download this album for Free here or visit him at facebook here
I havent done a lot recently but i fund some other stuff that i has not done uploaded yet.
Show Me A Dinosaur – Show Me A Dinosaur “Zvezdnoe Serdtse” (Heart of a Star)-Edition Limited nr 77 of 100. Listen: Here What a treat! Sweet like a bag of candy. I was thinking before to buy this wounderful album but when i saw the pictures of this release the consideration was over. The album it self might be real contender for Album of The year for me. A perfect blend of various genres that i bet you could argue over for days. If i have to say something negative it´s that it feels like the songs follow the same forumla. But on the positive side that leaves some room for improvment to the next album! Oh boy am i really looking forward for a new one. I […]
A picture of mine is hanging in the hallway at a friend’s house.
Morrow – Covenant Of Teeth Limited(200) Pre-order edition As always when Alex CF is involved you get a fantastic atmosphere and depth and im not only talking ábout the music here. When you open this package its like a another world and it almost feels a bit magical when you listen to the album and looking through the included booklet. Damn i love the feeling of the paper the booklet was made of(wondering that type it is). This is a release where the LP truly adds the the experience of the music it self.
Rituals – S/t (limited, glow in the dark) A real oldie but goodie. Such emotional and beautiful. This album has been with me for so many years. But what happened with them? They are really hard to find info about. Only minus with this release is that the awesome poster and the includes lyric is in really low resolution.
Thought it might be a good idea to upload some of my dear band-shirts before they get to old. More will be added later but this is a start. Will do something similar with my CD´s and LP´s as well. Most of the shirts a bought at live shows.
Got myself a nice package today with 3 vinyls! Lara Korona – Land Unter In the Hearts of Emperors / Reka – Split Hiro / Who Needs Maps – Split
I made my self a couple of own little brochures. Its 10 A4 pages made on 140g silk paper and i have done everything from layout to printing. I´m planing to make myself another one with even more content.
Damn, Anna Von Hausswolff and Sigur Ros on the SAME DAY at Stockholm Music & Arts. For many years i thought that Sigur Ros was ‘just another post-rock band’ then i gave Takk a real chance and rest is history as they say. I have always liked organ so that i immediately feel for Anna Von Hausswolff ain´t hard to figure out. Looking forward for two shows with two unique sounding band/artist !
It was truly amazing although Dim did´t sounded as good as i was hoping for. That was the song i was looking forward to heard the most but as soon as they started to play Dark City, Dead Man it was all back to normal(by normal i mean fantastic). When i was walking out after the show i overheard a guys talking on his phone: “What did i just saw!? That was so prefect i have tears in my eyes” and you could really hear on his voice how happy and moved by the show he were. I think that summons it up pretty well. I took some photos from my seat. You can check them out Here. Bonus pic with me and some merch from the show.
