    One thought on “Indie Rock Poster Book”

    1. Some of my favorite songs/bands coupled with posters/drawings that represent specific songs. Sometimes you can guess the song title by looking at the poster before looking at the title panel (Sufjan Stevens' excellent coming-of-age anthem "Chicago") and other times it was not immediately ascertainable but made 100% sense in hindsight (Stars' "My Ex-Lover is Dead", which is one of the most haunting ballads of the 2000s).The most famous Bloc Party (my all-time favorite band) sweeper is represented [...]

    2. I was underwhelmed by this book. It was fun listening to the songs while looking at the posters, but I do not think many of the posters really evoked the same feelings as the songs. I think more variety from the artists would have also helped. Most of the posters were in very similar styles. I don't know very much about the Yellow Bird Project, which might have affected my opinion.

    3. Reminded me of RayGun magazine from the early 90s. I probably would have liked it even more if I was familiar with any of these bands.

    4. This is one of those things where I feel less like I "read" something and more like I "looked at" it. I was surprised to find out that most of these posters weren't made for concerts and instead illustrate the artist's ideas about a given song. I enjoyed most of the commentary and found a few artists whose work I want to see more of.

    5. I must be old. I don't recognize any of these songs or bands, but whatever, the posters are fun to look at and this series of books is for The Yellow Bird Project charities.

    6. I often don't give songs' lyrics the required attention, this book is a nice exercise in comparing texts, artwork and an artist's explanation.
