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.”
Check out the Pitchfork review here and the artwork below, featuring a collage by Medicine drummer Jim Goodall.
Did an interview with a really cool up and coming art magazine called Forge. I had a blast talking with Matthew. You can check out what they have to say below or go read it online here.
We just finished editing Issue 4! Much like our last issue, we somehow ended up with an enormous 100 page magazine. Finishing this issue was quite an endeavor due to how busy we’ve been since the Brooklyn Zine Fest and with school ending for the year, but because of all of the amazing artists who contributed to this issue we were super persistent with getting it done as soon as possible. Despite the slight delay, we’re really happy with how it all turned out, and we really enjoyed doing all of the interviews and collecting all of the submissions for it. We hope that you can enjoy this issue as much as we have enjoyed making it!
Issue 4: SENTIMENTAL includes submissions by Emanuel Couloumy, Kimberly Salt, Joëlle de Vries, Jason Lambidis, Alice Antoinette Lena Klyukina, Justine Kistler, Hana Haley, Anna Urik, Eddie Perrote, Samantha Blumenfeld, Shreya Gupta, Jess & Beyon, Andriana Nikolaidou, and Emilie Gleason. Issue 4 also includes interviews with Ryan McCardle, Grant Singer, Richard Kern, and Ray Masaki!
