I was super stoked when Insound emailed me this fantastic project — The Insound 20 — the marriage of indie music and design. Insound teamed up with designer Jason Munn of design studio The Small Stakes to develop an exclusive music merchandise & design project. The Insound 20 project features iconic designs for twenty of Insound’s favorite bands, silk-screened onto American Apparel t-shirts & hoodies as well as on hand-numbered and signed silk-screened posters. All product editions are limited. Insound plans on launching a new series each year, featuring a new designer or studio and twenty bands.

The bands in the inaugural Insound 20 are:

1. Beirut
2. Black Heart Procession (yay!)
3. Built to Spill
4. Calexico
5. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
6. Death Cab for Cutie
7. Department of Eagles
8. Grizzly Bear
9. Jose Gonzalez
10. Magnolia Electric Co.
11. New Pornographers

16. The Constantines
17. The Decemberists (yay!)

Only 1000 t-shirts and hoodie sweatshirts and 200 posters of each design are being made, and they will only be available on Insound.com.
