Weed+Yo La Tengo+Kozelek+Forest Swords
I met Willy Anderson before I knew he made music under the name Weed. He was kind, straight edge(had to throw that in because of his band name) and the quietest guy on the field during a late night wiffle ball game. I remember wanting to talk to him because he was wearing a Winnipeg Jets hat in Brooklyn which meant that he might of had the unhealthy obsession about 1990’s NHL hockey as I did. After finding his music I had to share it with friends plus also collab on a shirt idea which is a mixture of his EP art and the Vancouver Canucks logo, so the above imagery is that result.
I always thought Yo La Tengo’s Summer Sun record to be the best record to listen to it with friends while doing something outdoorsy like canoeing or camping, never tested it but i’m sure it would hold up to my expectations.
I saw Mark Kozelek the other night, I hope the people in San Fran caught him as well recently. He was selling all his albums for only $10! after the show so I picked up the live session one from 2009, definitely disappointed, he did a great job with my favorite song Carry Me Ohio.
Sadly I don’t know much about Forest Swords but that never stops me from posting a bands music. The echo on the vocals at 2:17 and 2:31 is what grabbed me, I want it to loop forever! is it going thru a guitar?! whatever is going on, i’m a fan.

I love this t-shirt/logo design! But it’s important to note there are 2 great Canadian sports logos here: the Vancouver Canucks “Skate” Logo and the Montreal Expos M/EDB that is inverted to form the W in Weed.

I’m pretty sure that those vocals are just a guitar going through a talkbox with some delay/reverb.

Beautiful logo(s). Love that on the sleeve it’s changed up with a pattern inside of the one ‘w’ stem. Also that album cover (and the first song) makes me want a pack of cigarettes and a road trip reaaal bad
