🌴 Sway Away Sunday 🍍

Percussive Pineapples • 1961

I love & collect the cheeky MCM artwork of the Command/style LP covers. Recently found this Hawaiian themed one. (Kapp Records)

🍹 Tiki Tiki mug from Japan • She’s a wacky boozy broad with her red nose and loose inhibitions.

 Novel Audioscapes


What if books (not movies of books) had their own soundtracks? A sort of auditory reading companion. It would create even more of an immersible dream world when reading…

And so my book themed album cover painting series was born today.

I’m also working on concept track names and record label design. If you have any track name suggestions please leave me a comment.

Mock LP Cover: Oahu without you

"Oahu without you," a mock record album cover by Vena Paylo

Through the magical powers of Photoshop, I’ve mashed up a vintage Hawaiian travel poster, text and grunge…and the result is an imagined record album cover I’ve entitled “Oahu without you.”

As soon as I thought of the album name I was surprised this album didn’t exist already.  This “record” would have all the uke, vibes and sway of typical vintage Polynesian music, but the tracks would all be sad and lonely ballads about being in a tropical paradise without the one you love.  Ironically, it would sound a lot like side one of The Polynesians “Hawaiian Wedding Song.

Once the sea salty tears have dried the next album needs to have more of a “take this paradise and shove it” attitude.

 

Happy Birthday, Nancy Wilson

February 20, 1937

Nancy Wilson is an American singer with more than 70 albums, and three Grammy Awards. …  Within four weeks of her arrival in New York she got her first big break, a call to fill in for Irene Reid at “The Blue Morocco”. The club booked Wilson on a permanent basis; she was singing four nights a week and working as a secretary for the New York Institute of Technology during the day.  …  Wilson’s debut single, “Guess Who I Saw Today”, was so successful that between April 1960 and July 1962 Capitol Records released five Nancy Wilson albums.  Wikipedia
