Variety Store EP Out on June 21
Here is the artwork for the new EP out in a few weeks. Trevor did an awesome job once again and even included the subtle touch of calling the store 'Checkers'. This is a tribute to the real store at the end of my street growing up in Oshawa. Many hours were wasted there playing Galaga and eating Mr. Freezies.
I also put together a new video for this song:
It tells the story of fictional rapper called Ricky. I made the vid myself on an iPad and it features some Creative Commons footage from a piece called 'One Night in New York'. It is old school footage of a guy riding his bike at night in NYC with a camera on his handlebars. It matches the story nicely. Thanks to Jackson Darby for adding the excellent scratching on this track.
