I had the super rad privilege of working on the package design for the new TOPS album Picture You Staring and in the process was able to see how awesome everyone was in/around TOPS. Be sure to watch their new video featuring some of Montreal’s best cameos.
TOPS are Jane Penny, David Carriere, Riley Fleck, Madeline Glowicki.

Medicine is back (again) with their sophomore album after reuniting last year. It’s titled Home Everywhere and is just incredible. The first single is called “Turning” and the video/gif above features photographs that Brad Laner and I worked on. I also had the grand honour creating the packaging design and layout for this new album. Exclaim writes:
The nine-song album was recorded at the band’s Los Angeles studio. According to a press release, the first side consists of “three-minute noise-pop gems” with Brazilian influences. The second half features relaxing piano and trombone drones before culminating in the title track, which is an “11-and-a-half-minute, multi-part album-within-an-album which begins as a sprightly celebration of domestic bliss and ends with a comely invitation to leave the planet.”
