preorder saint bartlett

April 5, 2010

I have a few upcoming art projects related to the release of Damien Jurado’s new album, Saint Bartlett, so I am thrilled to pass on the news that it is now available for pre-order via the Secretly Canadian website.

All pre-orders will receive an instant mp3 download of the whole record, which is pretty rad. As for those art projects, there will be more news soon…


new illo: spores

March 1, 2010

I’ve been doing my best to wear out Múm’s album Sing Along to Songs You Don’t Know since September but I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. It is so, so good! This one’s inspired by a song called “Blow Your Nose.”

I love this video by Branson Veal for Give Seattle – the song is “Not moving to Portland” by my favorite toothless Seattleite, John Roderick of The Long Winters.

Jacques Dutronc was the most awkward dancer ever. And it’s really, really amazing. I love it.

This was a ton of fun to make and the show should be a ton of fun, too.

morr & merge

August 8, 2009

A bit of music news today: Telekinesis, who I directed a video for, have just released their record in Europe and the UK on Morr Music! Very exciting, and you can get it on CD or vinyl here. The vinyl is super pretty.

Also, the wonderful Merge Records just threw their 20th birthday bash (music festival XX Merge) a few weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to be there for it. I wrote about it for the Merge blog, which you can read here.

Inspiration today: the super-dreamy and painfully beautiful Icelandic quartet Amiina shot by Vincent Moon for his concerts à emporter series.

j’aime l’amour à trois

April 29, 2009

Sometimes, you’ve just got to put down the arts & crafts, and sing and dance instead.

Pictured above: Paper Tiger singing une chanson d’amour avec Stereo Total at Cat’s Cradle earlier this month. Grand merci à Rachel Demy pour ce photo !

Also, new art is imminent! Just not ready yet…

dreaming of tokyo

March 4, 2009

Exciting news today at Paper Tiger HQ! Some of you reading may remember a music video I made last summer with Telekinesis for a song called “Tokyo.” Well, I have re-cut the video to the album version of the track, and I am happy to say that today it makes its internet debut!

You can watch it here on Pitchfork, or on my film page. The song is off of Telekinesis!, due April 7th on Merge Records.
