Your experience may differ, but the first time I saw Sean William Randall’s fireball car paintings I laughed out loud. Something about the idea of a serene winter landscape being totally disrupted by a flaming car hurtling through the sky was (and still is!) delightfully absurd. It is both comedy and tragedy perfectly embodied in one still moment. Plus, it makes a great metaphor for how I feel when I hear an amazing piece of music. The still frozen air of my mind broken apart by a great song. It is an experience I felt listening to every one of the songs on Meanwhile… But like I said, your experience may differ. In fact, your experience will certainly differ since that is how the artwork for this record was designed. The record jacket contains 4 fold out scenes of serenity with not-a-car in the sky. Until you find the sticker sheet of cars and explosions, inviting you to place them how you see fit. Are these cars taking off? Coming down? Or just straight burning up? You decide!

Vinyl Moon, you are wonderful. It is a sin that this has been in my office for a few weeks without being unwrapped and put on for a spin. Honestly, if a band put as much thought into the presentation and aesthetic of their albums once a year as the folks at #vinylmoon do, you would follow them religeously awaiting their next release. The fact that Vinyl Moon does it every month is just absurd! Orange album, beautiful cover art, stickers and a sticker book inside. Every Vinyl moon unwrapping is like Christmas. Thank you. #vinyl #coloredvinyl @vinylmoonco #amazing #bespoke #creative #upthecreekrecords #walnutcreek
