Todd Slater MGMT & Tegan and Sara Posters On Sale

Todd Slater just dropped a couple of stunning new posters for MGMT and Tegan & Sara.

MGMT Poster Details from Todd:

I can't imagine a more scrutinized record to be released this year than MGMT's third. The show was 10 days before the album was released and I decided to comment on it's reception. I had this sort of mystical image in my head of an owl offering the moon to a wolf. The moon is a representation of MGMT's latest offering (record) and the wolf is it's reception (audience). The background shows spears pointing towards the moon along with a repeating pattern of descending wolves.

Tegan and Sara Details :

This was one I wanted to make and I approached T+S about the project. The idea is that the band has grown over the years and have now spread their wings and turned their sound into something new. The bird's tail morphs from feather to braid and finally into a subtle version of T&S's profiles on the left and right of the page. The braid itself is a reference to childhood, innocence and the idea that the two have grown up together. Visually, I liked the feeling of duality in the image and also the look of the intertwined braid. The roots/lightning in the background serve as stylized texture that also represent growth.

The print is also dedicated to my friend Craig who really turned me on to the band's sound years ago.

Sparkle variant numbered to 6 copies randomly inserted into orders!
