oh snap! austin chronicle’s music staff just released their top ten albums lists – i’ve had the pleasure of designing cover art for some of the killer albums on this list:
Suzanna Choffel’s ‘Steady Eye Shaky Bow’
Golden Bear’s ‘Alive’
Leatherbag’s ‘Yellow Television’
thanks so much for letting me be a part of your projects! ♥

hey kids! get ready for the long-awaited release of golden bear‘s new album ‘alive’, which comes out this month. this little lady had the honor of putting together the album artwork for it (based on some photos they shot in zilker park). it was an inspiring process working with lead singer chris gregory to push the possibilities of the design – eschewing the standard photo treatment for something more graphic and iconic. i also want to mention that the album was produced by the mastermind danny reisch, who has worked with the likes of shearwater, white denim and the black and white years.
you can check out a review and a video of the band here. if you’re in the austin area, come by club deville on october 29th for the official cd release party. see you there, lovers!
