Illustration and design for independent record label's 15-year anniversary release

The Sound Of Northern Star double album artwork

The Sound Of Northern Star is a vinyl double-album release celebrating 15 years of the independent record label Northern Star Records.

I've worked with Northern Star for a substantial part of those 15 years, and was very happy to be asked to design this special release. The cover reworks an illustration previously used for a Northern Star gig poster; the gatefold inside sleeve – visible only to those who buy the album! – reveals a celebratory montage of records, photographs, and posters from the label's history.

The album includes music by The Nova Saints, Youngteam, The Cult of Free Love, The Early Morning Satellites, The Carousels, The Medicine, The December Sound, Soundwire, Kontakte, Delicasession, The Electric Mainline, 93MillionMilesFromTheSun, Spotlight Kid, The Voices, and The Lost Rivers.

Listen to the album at the record's Bandcamp page, and pre-order a copy at the release's Kickstarter page.
