Camp America Releases a CD Encased in LEGO Blocks [Album Pick]

A paper cover is one option if you’re looking for ways of making music releases physical and tangible. But Steven Cowley went to something a bit more unusual. A release of his one-man project Camp America comes with a bag containing 125 LEGO pieces, and instructions for building the case. Steven writes us as he sees that paper example to show us some next-level physical release magic.

And, oh yeah, importantly, it’s really good music – finely-polished, top-notch, synth-laden pop songs. It’s just darned good music, so the best I can say is, go take a listen. I also think Steven’s bio will speak to a lot of CDM readers, his: “youth was spent coaxing sounds from his ZX Spectrum and the family Atari.”

Along with piano lessons and a love for cheap instruments and charity shops, it was a natural step to start putting some of these influences into his own music. Throwing whatever he could find into the mix – borrowed guitars, vinyl found lying in the street – Camp America came to life as a one-man project.

Amen, brother.

And, hey, if you really want to teach kids today the value of music, the LEGO thing might work. Well, anyway, I still play with LEGOs. Give the music a listen:

(And, yes, I’ve got a backlog of music coming your way. July is going to be a heck of a lot of fun.)

    Jesus said to his host, "When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors; if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous." Luke 14:12-14
