Tomasz Stanko – Balladyna

Author: Colin | Published: 21/10/10

The integration of colour, image, type and layout sometimes results in something that is talismanic.
The wildness in Stanko’s sound on Balladyna also contributes to this.

I’ve lately heard murmurs through the fug of my local hostelry’s lounge bar of something called social networking. In my hopeful desire to see more visitors wipe their feet on Hard Format’s welcome mat, I have therefore engineered a dedicated Twitter account and an Official Facebook Page for your delectation and ongoing perusal. These are in addition to the already extant Hard Format RSS newsfeed. I trust one or more of these options will serve you well. If you wish to post individual items to your own streams, roll your cursor gently over the little ‘+’ sign below the title of each post and a plethora of different services will be revealed.

If there’s any way in which I may further assist you, please do get in touch.

Notes This design is like a 50s day-glo take on Raster Noton with an extra helping of embossing. The neon green combined with the layered zigzags makes for buzzing eye syndrome. Not a bad thing at all. The sci-fi shades suit the anthemic music to a tee.

Will be released in November via Cargo
