Music-Inspired Art: The Hype Machine Zeitgeist
What American girls have to do with beach houses and Scandinavian boys.
By Maria Popova
This week, the good folks at The Hype Machine are unveiling their annual Music Blog Zeitgeist, where they get 50 talented visual artists to create original pieces depicting the 50 best artists/albums of 2009, based on their blogosphere popularity.
Each day this week, they released 10 pieces of artwork, starting from #50 and ending with today’s #1 — unsurprisingly, Phoenix.
The artists include a ton of our favorites, and some of the albums we were most impressed with this year.
Explore all the artwork for more a wonderfully diverse slew of aesthetic styles and creative visions, inspired by the greatest indie talent of our day.
