2009 Jan by Burlesque of North America
Followers of the indie rap universe are hopefully familiar with Minneapolis' own P.O.S. Our homie since day one, we've had the chance to work with Mr. Pissed-Off Stef on a number of occassions. In 2006, we designed and printed his ""P.O.S is Ruining My Life"" tour poster. Here's P.O.S autographing one of the last available copies of said poster at our 2008 SXSW Flatstock booth. He was one of the musical acts at the very very first art show at First Amendment Arts back in September 2006 and he brought the rest of his Doomtree crew with him: Soooo yeah, our folks over at Rhymesayers Entertainment are just a few days away from releasing ""Never Better,"" the new album from the rapper we've been blabbing about this whole time. Not only is the music super damn good (bonus factoid - Burlesque's DJ Mike 2600 did some scratches on one of the songs), but it also features far and away the best album packaging and artwork ever on a Rhymesayers release. Watch this... The art direction and artwork is by Minneapolis' Eric Carlson, a member of the Hardland / Heartland art collective (along with Crystal Quinn and Aaron Anderson). They have installed art exhibits at little ol' First Amendment as well big time Minnesota Institue of Arts and are responsible for some very creative and thought-provoking artwork. Here's the poster they created for their SERIOUS ART exhibit at our gallery.
