The Indie Rock Coloring Book

Like indie rock? Like colouring in? This may well be the book for you

Like indie rock? Like colouring in? This may well be the book for you…

Yes, the Montreal-based nonprofit Yellow Bird Project has published an Indie Rock colouring book, with illustrations by Andy J Miller, that nicely reflects the DIY spirit of many of the bands contained within. 

For instance, you can…

Colour The National’s Fake Empire:

Find all the birds in Devendra Banhart’s beard (and colour them yellow):

Draw a reflection of a projector, just like on The New Projectors’ Twin Cinema album; or colour-in Joseph Arthur’s numerous pieces of musical equipment:

Or, and my personal favourite, colour-in the picture “that proves that the water supply was enchanted in the Wisconsin cabin where the [Bon Iver] album For Emma, Forever Ago, was written.” Maximum twee points there…

The Yellow Bird project works with musicians to create T-shirt designs, which are then sold on the YB website, with the proceeds benefitting charities of the musicians’ choice. More at yellowbirdproject.com.

The Indie rock Coloring Book is published by Chronicle Books; $9.95. You can see more of Andy’s work over at Koma Design.
