BAND WEBSITES I AM LOVING

JEREMY ENIGK/LEWIS HOLLOW RECORDINGS ARCADE FIREDEATH CAB FOR CUTIE
Lately I have been getting some great inspiration from some seriously artistic band websites. I don’t quite know how to describe my favorite genre here, but there is a certain level of ephemera, lots of depth and layers, and definitely some fierce creativity about these sites that I love (in addition to their music!). I don’t think it’s any coincidence either that many of my favorite sites belong to bands from my home turf of Seattle and the PNW...

THE DECEMBERISTSThe Decemberists site is perhaps my most favorite. (Their album The Crane Wife=so good.) The script alone on this site blew me away and I am a sucker for anything involving ships and dreams of the orient express. {Images from The Decemberists website / illustration by “the lovely and talented” Miss Carson Ellis}
