Indie Bands that blow me away, YES. So many most favorite bands with so little time. Each month I listen to new and old bands that consistently rock my world, song after song after song. And if they weren’t in my Top 10 or Top 20 before then shame on me, they are now. Hand scrawling names onto crumpled paper from my waste basket, I though this online blog documentation (whether permanent, or just temporary like everything else) would be a better way to go. So here we go:
* Black Rebel Motorcycle Club * Brian Jonestown Massacre * Deerhunter & Atlas Sound * The National * Bright Eyes * Wild Nothing * Dntel * Mogwai * Galaxie 500

Mst 380, inspired by the always talented Ulrich Schnauss, with Jonas Munk, from the new, instrumental album Passage.
This piece is inspired wholeheartedly by all instrumental (or mostly), blissed out, ambient, shoegaze, post-rock music (pretentious, yes, so whatever you wanna call it). Mst 380, best seen with headphone pop playing.
Mst 380, my latest art project EntertainMe, where I create another year’s worth of digital collages, based on indie rock and visual media. Click here to see source credits and background info on deviant Art.
Being drawn to the mystical since I was young, I seem to veer toward it in my work. Not religious by any means, I still gravitate towards spiritual icons and symbols. This was another old illustration, black & white and simple, yet powerful. It was a joy building off this mystical and wise- looking monk.
To view more, or god forbid, purchase any of my collages, you can contact me here with a note or through email. To buy my art in a variety of prints, go to the site Curioos. If you would rather have my collages splashed onto your phone or ipad cases, tshirts, mugs or clocks (yes, clocks), view Redbubble or deviant Art [dA].
