This past weekend I attended the XPoNential Music Festival, right across the Deleware from Philadelphia in beautiful Camden, NJ (well…partially beautiful). One of the acts I saw was Jukebox the Ghost. After watching their awesome set, I checked out the merch tent by the stage and was incredibly impressed with the style and quality of their t-shirt designs. It’s like these things were made for my sensibilities. Anyway, after hanging around that merch tent I knew what was getting posted on troundup! Here are the two Jukebox the Ghost t-shirts they had at the show, both of which I really like.
This first one, Lineghost, is my favorite (although I really like both of them). I think it’s a bold move to not actually put the full name of the band on the shirt in text. It shows they care more about creating a shirt worthy of being worn than increasing their brand awareness. The design is simple and quirky and awesome. You can pick it up for the low price of $15.00 at Jukebox the Ghost’s merch store.
This is the second Jukebox the Ghost t-shirt from the show, and I also love it. It’s got a little more going on than the first one. Again, I love the style. The ghosts are just so simple and goofy looking–it’s great. You can also pick this one up for $15.00 from the merch store.
I recently posted about that awesome Best Coast t-shirt which came from Insound and Delicious Design’s collaboration project. That shirt was the first release from the duo of companies. Today, they’ve come back with a second release from another awesome band: The Walkmen. The Walkmen are a great band who I really enjoy. Funny story–I actually saw The Walkmen live twice at SXSW and XPN Festival before I ever actually listened to them. They put on a great show, and all their songs are quality. This, In the New Year, is probably my favorite song from them if you want a starting point.
As for the t-shirt design itself, I also dig that. It’s just got that simple yet creative flair that I enjoyed so much in the Best Coast shirt. I’m definitely adding this to my already overflowing (with vinyl) Insound cart. As with all the t-shirts from their collaboration, they’re printed in limited edition runs–so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good. Don’t dawdle! You can pick up the design for $19.99 at Insound. We’ve also got an Insound coupon code, which is currently active and good for 10% off your entire order. The shirt is printed on American Apparel. Oh yeah, be sure to check out The Walkmen as well.
I really like this newly released Best Coast t-shirt from Insound. It’s part of the newly started Insound + Delicious Design Project, which is really cool. Insound has partnered up with Chicago based Delicious Design. Together, they will create a unique t-shirt for six of their favorite bands from 2011. These shirts will be printed on American Apparel and only released in small, one-time batches. The Best Coast shirt is the first release from this awesome partnership.
As for the shirt itself, I love it. I haven’t been to California, but I imagine that this shirt holds some truth (or a lot of truth…). California is out there being all smiley and sunny while Pennsylvania is stuck with that frowny rain. I love the East coast, but California (and the West coast as a whole), still holds a particular allure to me.
You can pick this t-shirt up for a limited time from Insound. It’s printed on American Apparel and costs $19.99. I also should be able to provide an updated Insound coupon code very soon, which will most likely be good for 10% off your order.
P.S. I saw Best Coast in Philly. She was sick but it was still a pretty good show. Her voice was amazing live.
Yellow Bird Project is a t-shirt website with an amazing concept–one of my favorite concepts, to be exact. First, Yellow Bird Project reaches out to a musical artist, Beach House in this case. The musical artist, Beach House, then designs a t-shirt to be sold on the Yellow Bird Project website. Pretty cool so far, right? It gets better though–Yellow Bird Project then donates the proceeds from the t-shirt to various charity projects. This is an incredible concept–you get music, art, t-shirts, and charity all combined in one cool site. The charity being donated to for this shirt is House of Ruth, a non-profit which helps victims of domestic abuse.
As I’ve mentioned, the musical artist who designed this shirt is Beach House, who are a really cool dream pop (love that label…) partnership from Baltimore. You should check them out–Used to Be is a particularly good song in my opinion. They’re also pretty good artists, as I legitimately like this crazy, pastel-colored trip of a house. You can pick this design up for $25.00 from Yellow Bird Project. It’s printed on American Apparel, and be sure to remember that the proceeds go to charity, which is a great thing.
I think I’ve expressed my love for Insound’s awesome collection of band t-shirts in the past. They sell a selection of great designs from some really great bands. As such, I wanted to notify you about two new developments in the area of Insound’s music t-shirts. First, Insound has just released a great new batch of shirts, including designs for bands like Fleet Foxes, Mumford and Sons, Passion Pit, The National, Daft Punk, Dinosaur J.R., and a bunch of other awesome bands.
In case these new releases aren’t cool enough by themselves (which they are), Insound is also offering 20% off all the new t-shirt designs for a limited time. With the discount, the designs only cost $15.99 (although there are two exceptions). I think that’s a pretty attractive price for some awesome band shirts. Head over to Insound’s new release page to see all the designs. We’ve also got an Insound promo code which I think is still good for an additional 10% off.
P.S. I give so much love to band shirts because I like supporting the bands. It’s my little way of combining my love of graphic t-shirts with my desire to support the bands that I enjoy on a regular basis.
Insound, a popular purveyor of vinyl and music t-shirts whom I love, is offering 20% off their exclusive line of band shirts. I’ve posted about this line before, and the shirts really are quite cool. The designs are all unique to Insound and feature a bunch of bands across genres, both popular and indie. A few examples are The Decemberists, Girls, Beach House, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and a bunch more. As the post title hints at, Insound is offering 20% off this entire line of shirts. I highly recommend you check them out, because the shirts are awesome and the prices are good (especially with the sale). We’ve also got an Insound promo code which will give you 10% off your entire order. The coupon is good until 5/20/11.
With the sale price, the shirts are only $16.00 each ($14.40 with our coupon). Go check them out at the Insound store. Hell, pick up some vinyl while you’re there too.
Frank & Jan just kicked off their Spring 2011 line, including this piece of knowledge from one, Mr. Bob Dylan (who’s not taking no fucking responsibility for cats he doesn’t know, man). The statement is pretty poignant, as can be expected from Bob. The typography is simple, but I like it. Same deal with the colors–black and white isn’t breaking any barriers, but it looks cool + clean. Overall it’s a sweet little typographic/quotastic (that ain’t no word!) t-shirt from a great musician.
You can pick this one up for $24.00 from Frank & Jan. Be sure to check out the rest of their Spring releases while you’re at it.
With this shirt, The Cooler Collective keep up their awesome trend of great rapper shirts. Power is a great song (that beat is nasty, son), and Kanye with lazers shooting from his eyes is cool as hell. I also love how it looks a bit like an old horror movie poster. This shirt is sweet like candy.
So yeah…I’m a huge fan of this shirt. Go check it out at The Cooler Collective, because it’s cooler than most shirts (see what I horribly did there?). It’ll cost you $21.00, which is a small price to pay. We’ve also got a Cooler Collective coupon page, which will be updated whenever applicable.
P.S. The design is actually titled, “Beam Me Up”, which I think is nifty too.
I really like Kid Cudi. I posted that awesome Cudi portrait from The Cooler Collective a little while back, and now I’m going to partake in a little more Cudi love. This one is essentially the album cover, and I thoroughly dig it. I just think it’s an iconic image (even though Cudi ain’t quite at that icon status yet). The face on the moon was a great album cover, and it translates into a great shirt.
You can pick this one up from Karmaloop for $20.00. If you haven’t given Kid Cudi a listen yet, I recommend you do. Pursuit of Happiness and Revofev are good places to start in my opinion. We’ve also got a Karmaloop coupon good for 20% off your order, making the shirt only $16.
Insound T-Shirt Sale–25% Off Lots of Music Shirts, incl. Beach House, Girls, Peter, Bjorn and John + More
Insound, an awesome online record store, is having an equally awesome sale on a bunch of band shirts–57 shirts to be exact. Every shirt on the list is discounted 25%. These aren’t just the reject shirts that need to be cleared out–there are a lot of quality designs from great bands. I’ve posted two of my favorites above (Peter Bjorn and John on the left and Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the right ), but other shirts on sale are from bands like Beach House, Blitzen Trapper, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Girls, Grizzly Bear, She and Him, Sonic Youth, Spoon, The Black Keys (x2), The Decemberists, The National, Wolf Parade, and Beirut (among others). I think most people can probably find something they like from that list.
Head on over to Insound to check out the sale. The vast majority of shirts are in the $14.00-$16.50 range. We’ve also got a page for Insound coupons to get even lower prices (although I don’t think they have any active currently).
