I was stoked to find a few copies of the new Seafang 7″ single (which I did the cover for) waiting for me in the mailbox this morning. As some of you know, I go way back with Elephant Stone Records as they put out both releases from my former band, The Situation. To be honest, our band never really came through for the label as we disintegrated a few short months after finally releasing our debut LP, which Ben had to borrow money for to pay for the mixing and pressing. Between the financial strain and just the general sorry state of the music industry, the label went into hibernation sometime around 2007 so I was very excited when I heard that they were putting something out in 2016 and was sincerely honored to be asked to create the artwork for the record. Ben and Bella are the real deal, true believers in the spirit of rock and roll, and I owe them a lot. Much respect to both of them.
The Seafang single is great but don’t take my word for it – check out the tunes here. If you dig indie pop like The Primitives, Shop Assistants, JAMC, Best Coast, etc, then be sure to pick one up. The record officially drops July 29th.
Very stoked to have my artwork featured on these limited edition sketchbooks from Denik!
So please consider purchasing one online or at various independent shops around the US.
Much respect to all the artists in the SCS and thanks for the love – hopefully I can make it down to Syndey one day.
