This year has been a little different for The Good Child. Year One was all about building a foundation – thanks to you guys and, in return, my own determination. Year Two seems to be more about growing the brand as a full creative force. There was the KH Art House design, the contributing to Hide Your Arms blog, and then there was this:
When Sarah Jaffe came to me looking for a t-shirt for her new and most recognized album, The Body Wins, I was more than flattered. Not yet knowing exactly what the album title meant to Jaffe, I was instantly drawn to my collection of vintage family photographs. Add to it that Jaffe was a Good Child customer and loved the Respect Your Elders tee, and right away we knew the direction for the design. Say hello to Puerto Rico 1972.
Jaffe picked the shirt body for the design and I love the overall vintage feeling behind the finished product. The album title really seems to work with the vibe in this image and it’s great that it was released during the warmer weather. Continue reading

As you might have read previously, I was privileged be in company for Sarah Jaffe‘s newest album-listening session last month. Jaffe is a 26-year-old singer-songwriter who hails over the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in Texas. She has gotten a lot of hype over the years from all over the place, and now most recently including NPR, Vogue, and Marie Claire (What?! Awesome!).
In celebration of her album releasing today, The Body Wins, here is a short video of Jaffe singing “Sucker for Your Marketing.” The video is filmed on my iPhone 4s, so I apologize beforehand for any poor sound quality you might encounter.
Please support the album here or here. I prefer vinyl myself and can’t wait to get my hands on a copy. Jaffe also headlines at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX on May 5th.

Last night, I had the great opportunity to sit in on a small, private listening session with musician Sarah Jaffe. Jaffe played some of her past hits, recent favorites, and some new tracks off of her album The Body Wins (releasing April 24th). I have to say that this up & coming album is a step in a new and exciting direction. While listening, I found myself wanting to dance to one song and then being familiarly haunted by Jaffe’s voice and acoustics in another. The new music Jaffe is bringing to the table is evolved in a good way. I can’t wait for the album drop (and I will share more at that time)!
Look for The Body Wins this April and check out more on Jaffe, here as well as in the previous Random Hero post!
