So one of my comics idols, Matt Howarth, did this thing where he’d draw these little comic strips about music he was listening to, and stuck them in the back of his comics. He called them “Sonic Curiosity”, and these things got me to try out a lot of music I wouldn’t have ever heard of otherwise. (He’s still doing this now and then online, as a matter of fact.)
This is me sitting down with the latest album by one of those musicians and doing my take on the idea.
Dead Planet is the second side of a double album. The first side is “Human Upgrade”, in which the alien wants you to have an awesome high-energy dance party. The whole package is ten pounds – about sixteen bucks American – on Bandcamp. I liked it enough to draw this while listening to the second half.
