Kings of Leon Contest at Design by Humans

Design by Humans is holding a design contest for the band Kings of Leon, who I really like (check out the song, Sex on Fire). I’ve been browsing through the entries, and I’ve picked out my favorites. Everyone should go check them out, and hopefully vote for them, because I want them to get printed so I can buy them. So here they are, ranked somewhat in order–the top two are my definite favorites, but I can’t pick between them.

Anyone have any other entries they like? Other comments? Let me know.

Turn Up the Stereo from Glamour Kills

I’m lovin’ the eyes on the stereo, as well as the paint splatter. Music is a big part of my life (listening to Vampire Weekend right now), so I can understand the sentiment. As they say, “Plug it in and Turn it up!”.

You can buy this one from Glamour Kills for $24.99. They’ve got a great line in general, check ‘em all out.

Music Through Shirts: Sublime

I’m a huge music fan, so I was looking for some way to incorporate this into the blog. I thought about it for a little and came up with an idea for a kind of mini-series of posts entitled Music Through Shirts. Every once in awhile, I’ll post up a shirt from a band that I like, and give some song recommendations and such. Today is the first one. We’ll begin with Sublime. I think they’re pretty well known, so you might have heard of them, if not, you should check them out.

Sublime T-Shirt

This one is pretty much the quintessential Sublime shirt (at least it’s what I’ve seen most shirts to be like). It’s got the big sun (one of their album covers I believe) on the front, with the band name on the back. I think the sun is an excellent design. Some band shirts can be weak, but this one isn’t.

Now, for some recommended tracks:
Jailhouse
Santeria
What I Got
Trenchtown Rock
Saw Red

Hopefully you enjoy.
