New contest :: Calexico’s moustache hat poster

Insound is partnering with Fuel/Friends to offer a sweet limited-edition Calexico poster designed by the fearsome Jason Munn of Small Stakes in San Francisco. If you are a fan of the burnished southwestern wilderness in Calexico’s music, moustaches, or excellent poster design, this is the contest for you. Enter to win here, and the lucky reader will be announced next Tuesday.

There’s a whole series of posters and hoodies Munn’s designed for artists like The Hold Steady, The National, Okkervil River and Grizzly Bear. It’s part of the Insound 20 project to benefit 826NYC, and I like the clean and direct graphic punch of the entire collection.

Some of my favorite Calexico sounds:
Always On My Mind – Calexico with Iron & Wine (live on NPR)
Banderilla – Calexico (from the Sprout soundtrack)
Two Silver Trees – Calexico (from the newest release, Carried To Dust)

Good luck!

  • I actually have one of his posters, for Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, and he must have a very distinctive style because that’s the first thing I thought of when I saw that design. Very simple but evocative designs.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
