Empires - How Good Does It Feel (acoustic for Relix Magazine) ›

Earlier this month we posted a video of Empires covering The Flaming Lips at The Hangout. Here the quartet shares one of their own songs, the title track to their new EP

Really great toned-down version of HGDIF!

Did I ever post this one? It isn’t in my Empires tag. This was the first one I did about ‘em.

I’m going to try to make this as non-obnoxious as possible.

As you know if you follow me/as you may have seen on fuckyeahempires or through a reblog from one of my lovely friends, I’ve been drawing posters inspired by Empires’ new ep and their music in general.

Last night I brought all of the new ones to show them, I asked Tom for permission to sell them on Society 6 and give them 100% of the profits from that and he gave his explicit verbal blessing so I’m finally gonna put them up for sale within the next week. I’m gonna link it here when it’s ready, and it would be so so so phenomenally rad if anyone who sees that post could pass it on?

In case anyone isn’t familiar with Society 6, it works like this: I put up a poster, they give you a list of sizes you can buy the poster in or items you can put it on (I’ll try to include as many as possible but some designs only work vertically blah blah). On top of the production/shipping fee is an artist fee that can be added to the items.

That would be pure profit for Empires. I’ll collect it and paypal it to them as it comes in. I would probably put a flat rate on all items/sizes, so everything is fair? I’m thinking $10 because large sizes can get expensive on their own and the smallest ones start at like $13 (I bought two of the largest available size prints to have them sign and I’m pretty sure I paid roughly 30/each).

Included will be:

The Brain Poster.The Bird Poster.
The Crab Poster.
The Lantern Poster - Correct Flame.
The Lantern Poster - Inverted Flame.
The Bear Poster.
The Bottle Poster.
The Jackalope Skull Poster.
The Burning Elephant Poster.
The Fire Wolf Skull Poster.
The Valentine.
The House Fire.

I’ll list one as it was made originally with the venue/date specific text and one with just the band name in case you don’t give a damn that I was really excited about Spokane.

Alternately if someone wanted the date of another show commemorated I’d be totally happy to edit text so they’re personalized. It would require a day’s notice at least to create the images and list them on the site but it’s totally do-able.

They liked ‘em, guys. The Empires liked a thing I did. Holy shit.

TL;DR: I AM GOING TO SELL THE ABOVE ART, ALL PROCEEDS GO TO EMPIRES, ARE YOU INTO IT? IF SO LOOK FOR A POST IN THE COMING WEEK OR LIKE/REBLOG/ASK AND I WILL LINK YOU PERSONALLY WHEN IT’S READY.

Here it is… the full video of Sean singing Darko at the end of Orphan (which is a killer jam on its own). I have an audio rip; message me for a Dropbox link.
