We previously reported that for Kurt Vile’s newest album he enlisted the expertise of fellow Philadelphian sign painter/wordsmith artist, Steve Powers aka ESPO. The album titled “Waking On a Pretty Daze” will incorporate Powers artwork on the cover and in the packaging from a mural he painted in Philly. A short documentary was created on the making of this mural. It includes some of the ideas behind the visual imagery and vocabulary Powers chose to use and incorporate on the wall.
