Photos for new Plush record, “Bright Penny”

Update: There are two music videos (so far) for this album. I shot the video for the opening track, Take A Chance, and Roman Coppola shot the video for White Telescope.

I had the pleasure of taking pictures (both publicity stills and album art photos) of my friend Liam Hayes for the new Plush record, Bright Penny, which comes out next week on the British label Broken Horse and the Japanese imprint After Hours. Here’s a collage I put together from the promo shots:

The kindest Uncut: five stars for Plush “Fed”

Broken Horse is releasing the Liam Hayes/Plush album “Fed” in the UK for the first time (it was initially released a few years ago, but only in Japan; you can buy a downloadable version here). British rock magazine Uncut reviewed it in their September issue, giving it five stars–––not too shabby. I did the photography for “Fed,” as well as the publicity shots Uncut ran with the review. It’s rare to get photo credit for promo shots, so I wasn’t expecting one, but Uncut did run one–sort of:

Anyhow, I’m glad it’s back in circulation—it’s a mighty swell record.
