So… these three guys we’re playing punk music in Detroit 2 years before the Ramones invented punk. Wait, what? I finally got a chance to watch this film, and it is one of the greatest music stories I’ve ever heard. Highly recommended!

Wow. David A. Smith was commissioned by John Mayer to do his new album art for Born and Raised. See the incredible process here. Absolutely beautiful!

I made an impulsive art purchase today, and bought this Michael Jackson print from the amazing Greg Gossel. I’m pretty sure this is going over my turntable. Oh yeah.

Here’s another beautiful poster done by one of my favorite design shops, DKNG Studios. I tried to snag on of these for my son’s room, but they sold out too quick!

Louisiana Swamp Soul

Friday, August 3rd, 2012

I stumbled across this tune while listening to a random mix of soul I had. This little gem by Camille “Lil” Bob (of Lil Bob and the Lollipops) is a prime example of how soulful and funky that era was. I wish I could’ve seen some of this music live.
