Heyooo everybody, happy 4th! The good ‘ole U.S. of A. isn’t the only thing to celebrate today - we’ve also got a whole batch of new artists debuting their tees next week! And to ring them in in true American fashion, we asked them to tell us about that band or song that instantly gets their creative juices flowing. Their answers prove that we’ve got some great music listeners on our hands (and had us discovering some new jams on Spotify!). Check out what they had to say, and be sure to tune in next Monday to snag their awesome new tees!
Q: What band or song instantly gets your creative juices flowing?
“To make me think outside the box: Devendra Banhart. To help get pencil to paper: The Lumineers. To maintain a steady flow with my ink work: Message To Bears or Phosphorescent. To reflect seriously on my design so far: Radiohead or The National. To find harmony in my colour choices: The Fleet Foxes. Right now: First Aid Kit.” Buy this tee now!
“I need just four simple words to start the working day: ‘Hey! Oh! Let’s go!’ Of course, I’m talking about the Ramones; their songs give me the right boost and tickle my daily creativity.” Buy this tee now!

“I don’t really have one. I just Muse…” Buy this tee now!
“I am very eclectic in my musical choices. I can listen to French Slammer or ABD AL MALIK (and his absolutely great album “Gibraltar”) next to gorgeous J.S. Bach’s the “Six suites for unaccompanied cello”, followed by French composer Pierre Henry or Junkie XL, then onto traditional tribal music from Namibia like “Songs of The Ju’hoansi Bushmen” (incredible sounds!) or DJ Krush (OuMuPo 6), and finish my day with Ali Farka Touré. All this great music triggers very positive vibes in my brain and body. And, speaking about Bach and his magic Cello Suites, he played in a loop while I created my illustration “Concerto”. I love that flowing Cello. Even dangerous spirits of the forest get docile with those sounds.” Buy this tee now!
“That’s a cool question! Most of the time I inject myself with Megadeth in ‘The Big Four’ where I can easily turn it on on Youtube. You should check it out, they are awesome! Metal up!” Buy this tee now!
