Hand Drawn Dracula filled a page of the National Post with photos, artwork and interviews. Read all about HDD in the article: ‘ABLE LABELS : Who would start a music imprint now? Only the passionate‘ by Mike Doherty.
“The label’s logo is a child-like sketch of a fanged creature’s head, but Mejia’s artwork, printed on “130-lb, double-thick, antique-stock” paper with hand-crafted packaging, is clinically precise and – crucial for branding purposes – undoubtedly recognizable. Borcherdt aspires to making HDD worthy of “a section in somebody’s CD shelf that’s not alphabetized like anything else: It sits alone because it’s aesthetically pleasing and has a certain feel, like something they’re excited to have.” – National Post
HDD’s WINTERSLEEP won the JUNO AWARD for Best New Group and the MUCHMUSIC Video Award for Weighty Ghost. BRIAN BORCHERDT topped the Slowcoustic, CBC Radio3, iTunes and MuchMusic lists, while CONTRIVED year end listed on iTunes and Herohill.
