Trapsta 200 Followers Ep (Cover Art by myself)

Howdy Folks! I finished this art for my good friend Satchel and his upcoming free album. He has officially hit 200 followers and now has released some of the said awesome tracks! I highly encourage checking at a local kansas city producer that has the producing skills to go big with the right fans. I had a lot of fun doing this project and would like to hopefully do more album art in the future. Ill go ahead and post my favorite track from this newest album here below. Give him a Follow!


Catholic Spray

Catholic Spray is a great change-up from the regular hardcore punk ive been attending lately. This beautiful band comes from Paris France, and i am one of the privileged people to say they have seen their performance in the United States. They actually decided to come to Kansas City first for the first us tour. All the guys in the band were super chill, and knew pretty good english. They were also astounded and amazed at my friend Anya’s hairless armpits. But here’s the shtick: They Are Great Music! Its a surfer punk sound and some fun get up vocals. The electronic waves that flow from their guitars put a remedy of a beach scene holding some comic angst in a glass of whiskey( thats what they were drinking anyway). I highly encourage checking these guys out.

And for another rant about why do it yourself bands are now my new favorite labeling system; you can always meet the band or community of people at their show. Its much more familiar and supportive, when you can actually discuss with the members of the band your appreciation, or interests in general.

Tryed a bit harder on this one. Kinda proud. Messed around with blending mode in layer styles, and recreation of characters. Also tryed my shot at observation skills of my favorite punks.


Brave Bird and Trapper

So yesterday i went to yet another touring do-it-yourself band and some locals. Need i say more, im obviously to supportive of “non-pros”. Im telling you guys it is by far more talent and more friendly then the big dogs. Anyway the band that was touring was called Brave Bird and the locals i enjoyed the most were Trapper.

Brave Bird: Is an emo math rock band from Ann Arbor. They are beautifully executed, with precision plucking and collection of teamwork. If you get a chance to check out their lyrics you should as well, because i really enjoy them and their vocalist alone is phenomenal. Not really much else i can say, except worth buying their music and also very much made me want to dance.

Trapper: I got to the show a little late, but ended up talking to these guys outside before i heard their set. I had recently heard about them only through my friend Zoe, who has some art lined up for them. Anyway, they were super nice guys and when they started playing i wasnt sure what to expect. I had been told they were punk, and they definitely were in a sense. But they had more than one genre up their sleeve. These guys were super original with lots of nifty tricks and trades to keep a fellow to keep listening. They broke down into hardcore settings sometimes, but most often had a soft spoken mellow tone with groovy little get-ups leading into chorus singing and harmonic styles of lyics that hold some righteous meaning. They have a new addition with a keyboard player, but has not released him yet. Check them out for sure.
