Think I’m gonna post what kind of music that inspires me when I work with graphic- and packaging design now and then from now on.

Dave Grohl and his Foo Fighters new album Wasting Lights is streaming very often now on my MacBook Air, both Spotify and Youtube. The whole band and it’s members are so inspiring and talented people. They’re not hard core rockstars anymore like drummer Taylor Hawkins said in their new documentary, they are musicians. Drugs and no.7 are now considered stupid.
The new album is by far the most professional among theirs, it’s a must to take a listening. So many hits and all are recorded in Dave Grohl’s basement on tape, no digital editing has been made afterwards.

I really recommend the documentary as well, called Foo Fighters Back and Forth, that came out just recently. Everything about Nirvana and stuff. Also brand new material from the recording of the latest album, so go watch it!

As a designer I think my brain kind of work like the same as a musicians and songwriters do.
