St. Bernard's Pass

My name is Brandon Bernard. I'm a graphic designer, storyboard and layout artist, and writer. I was born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, and lived in Los Angeles for 12 years, then in Austin, TX, for about a year, and I'm now in Brooklyn, NY. This blog is a virtual scrapbook of things that inspire me. Unless otherwise specified, the work here is not mine. Anything else you'd like to know? Feel free to hit up my "ask" box!

    Based in Bristol, Jim wanted to combine his love of music and design into one crowd-pleasing project. He’s certainly hit the nail on the head with these brilliant typeface designs for his favorite bands which include Grizzly Bear, Jack White and Hot Chip. This is an ongoing project and Jim will continue to post up the rest of the music-related alphabet over on his Facebook page.

    Click the link to download a zip file with this year’s spring music mix, “Spring Sermon.”

    Hold on tightly, because this one really is a mix-up: Duke Ellington plays Grieg, while Itzhak Perlman plays Gershwin. Arcade Fire and the Turtles wax nostalgic and satirical (respectively) on the theme of suburbs. Sister Ella preaches on the topic of sin (in case you’re wondering, she’s again’, not for) and Sister Dusty expounds on the decidedly worldly allure of a certain preacher’s son. Meanwhile, ol’ Rev. Blue Eyes advises us to turn our umbrellas upside down to accept blessings in disguise, while Brother Louis takes us way back to the Old Testament with the story of Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego. Brothers Bobby, Billy and Bruce each get their turn at the pulpit, and even the Beach Boys get into the spirit of things, purporting to know The Answer — although one suspects it has more to do with bikinis, deuce coupes, and waves than it does with that other Trinity. And, no, that’s not Bernard Herrmann’s score for the opening title sequence from Psycho, but the equally savage and blood-soaked sacrificial dance from Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. As jarring as it may be, the award for most surprising track on here has to go to the Temptations (and what collection of sermons would be complete without those?) singing “My Girl” auf Deutsch — I bet you can still sing along, though! Even the Fits on this mix are Divine. So whether this season means Passover, Easter, or Cancun to you, the perfect musical accompaniment is a click away…

    "Holiday Mix" might be a bit of a misnomer: in fact, I specifically stripped this mix of any Christmas-specific songs. No carols or hymns; no secular Santa songs. Ok, there is "Baby, It’s Cold Outside," but that doesn’t really reference a particular holiday. It’s probably better to think of this as a winter mix that is simply being offered to you in the spirit of the season.

    The musical selection here ranges from old school rock to new school rock, from big band jazz to a track from Star Wars (because I’m a dork like that). You’ll hear Radical Face and Faces on Film. You’ll hear two Matts: Matt Costa and Matt Pond PA. You’ll hear Arctic Monkeys, Dr. Dog, and two mononymous artists — Beck and Feist — as well as a dozen others.

    So hurry up and download this before the world ends! And if that doesn’t happen, these tunes are meant to accompany your winter long after “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” has become passé.

    I also just did this portrait of the band “The XX” for The New Yorker! I keep getting really good music related assignments from them. Thanks, Jordan!


    If anyone is interested, here’s the link to download my Fall Collection music mix, featuring tracks by the Shins, Ray LaMontagne, the Jam, Ben Howard, and Tommy Dorsey with Frank Sinatra, among others. 20 tracks in all.

    Sorry there’s no album artwork to go along with this; maybe for the next mix I put together.

    Happy listening, and happy autumn!

    Art director Andrew Nilsen, often creates the illustrations himself.
    See here more of his great cover designs.

    Beck’s new album is 20 songs in sheet music form and it’s up to you to record them.

    For those of us (me) with no musical talent, this is disappointing.
