Art of the Cover - The Postmarks' "Memoirs at the End of the World" (2009)

  



Gorgeous artwork. 

Gorgeous music.

Yap, it's the lovely Tim Yehezkely in her finest nouvelle vague clobber!

Memoirs at the End of the World was The Postmarks second - and sadly, final - album of original songs.

Pitchfork's Matthew Solarski called the collection "a thing of pristine orchestrated pop beauty". And he was right.




Following the release of the album, the band's most extensive period of touring took place, including the band's first visit to Europe and a US tour with Stellastarr and Peter, Bjorn and John. Soon after, though, things went into limbo and the group have been on hiatus since 2010. 

Tim Yehezkely has another project called Tim & Adam with Adam from I Am Stereo; They released a self-titled album in 2013.

Christopher Moll has moved onto a self produced project with a retro-soul sound called The Lovers Key, along with singer Maco Monthervil.

Jonathan Phillip continues with his personal music project Our Man In Pompano.
