Airfix Kits...

Airfix Kits recently released these 2 7" ep's, and it wasn't until i had both of them in my hands that i began to appreciate their aesthetic. Both of these records take a very "no frills" approach stylistically while displaying a subtle sense of humor about themselves. "Playing Both Sides" uses original photography for a literal depiction of the title track, while "Flex Time" uses found images to create tongue in cheek references to the working world. i really like that both records kept their layouts to strict 2 color pallets even though they were both CMYK printed, and that the A/B labels are exactly the same type lock ups..... have a look.

pick up "Flex Time" from Deranged and "Playing Both Sides" from Dirtnap.
