The very talented Joel P. West has recently completed a new album, Generous Shadows, with his new band The Tree Ring and I’m really excited for him. He sent me an advanced copy of it and I’d say it’s one of my favorite albums of the year so far (Yes, I know it’s only January!). The first time I listened to it I was walking to the bus stop/on the bus and it complimented my trip perfectly. To give you a taste of the album here’s a video that was shot by Destin Cretton for the song Wore It Deep.

To film the video they told everyone invited to bring a lamp, that was their admittance fee to the performance. The effect is rather sweet and fun, I imagine being there and seeing this live was a total blast. The song is of course wonderful as well, without doubt Joel has one of those voices that you want to sing along with. I believe his album comes out on February 2nd, so be on the look out.

    What a pleasant surprise to wake up to a college friend’s work on a design blog I love and respect! I went to college with Joel and agree that he is a talented guy. I’m glad you guys think so too. The timing is also fun, as my really good friend who’s involved with this project, just posted a bunch of behind the scene pictures on FB. =)

    There is also a great video on the website of Joel describing the design of, and then screen printing the album cover.
