As they did on their debut, Brooklyn's Javelin will once again be screenprinting over record sleeves acquired from thrift shops for their latest 12" on Thrill Jockey. (To check out some awesome examples of their past work, go here). But this time around, the guys are inviting fans to send in their own thrifted record covers, personalizing the record in a truly unorthodox way. Direct from Thrill Jockey, here's how to get your own unique record sleeve:
1) You pick a sleeve out and mail it here by January 18:
Thrill Jockey Records
P.O. Box 08038
Chicago, IL 60608 2) On the inside of the jacket, write your name, address, and email. This is how we will identify which one is yours when you place your order.
3) When placing the order with our mail order department, be sure to include MY JACKET in the order message. We will then match up your details and send you your unique copy!
Number Two comes out on February 16, and in anticipation, Javelin will be playing some select cities before its release. If you live in one of the following cities, consider yourself lucky—the group's live shows are a force to be reckoned with.
