Art That I Made & Music to Hear: Weller- Weller, I (2014)
Over the past year, I have had the great pleasure of conferring and conspiring with my old friend Nathan Toben on his new musical endeavor, Weller-- mainly I have supplied the album art and packaging (which developed out of long and elaborate creative conversations), but also the occasional note, oblique strategy, or basic sounding-board service. I also recently created a music video for one of the tracks.
The album, Weller I, is a lovely work of esoteric pop obsessiveness in a grand tradition of auterist cult records, outsider or loner pop, and idiosyncratic psychedelia. I recommend it. Check it out, it dropped officially earlier this week. If you buy a physical copy of the album, you'll have the added benefit of my artwork resting in your hot little hands.
