icatchfoxes is the creative pseudonym of me, Melissa S. Olson: Designer, Illustrator, Photographer and Writer. This photo was taken along the Pacific Coast near San Luis Obispo, California. I selected this photo as your introduction to me for two reasons.
One: my wonderful brother took the photograph, and two: I love to travel. (The first reason is notable because my brother is awesome. The second reason is notable because should you request my help at any distance and wish to hire me, I am eager, willing and able to travel.)

Questions, limericks, greetings, fugues and requests for freelance can be delivered via electronic correspondence to melissa [at] icatchfoxes.com. For your convenience (should you prefer more traditional methods of communication) most carrier pigeons know where to find me.

Dozens are Chicago natives Kyle Mann, Vincent Theodore and John Norman. Incorporating synthpop, post-rock and EDM elements into an ambient aesthetic, Dozens marries infectious melody with a dreamy melancholy. As a trio of of multi-instrumentalists, producers and DJs, Dozens delivers a deliberate production on tracks that run the gamut from radio ready synth-tinged singalongs to spacious soundscapes.

Featuring a wide spectrum of dynamics and a tonal palette that draws from disparate musical worlds, Dozens’ varied catalogue receives a sculptor’s treatment on record. Rife with lush wall of sound atmospheres and extended instrumental passages showcasing intricate synth, string and brass arrangements, Dozens self-released collection has drawn critical comparison to a range of artists such as MGMT, Kings of Convenience and Hall & Oates.

“Young women, hillbillies, and fellow Doritos enthusiasts rejoice: Worship This! are here to give you that
lovin’ feeling. It’s not all champagne and horse races…there’s something to be said (and to be heard)
of punk rock that’s endured the trappings of adulthood, the despair of Northeast Ohio winters, and
the abandonment of loved ones…For fans of Horace Pinker, Latterman, Hot Water Music, and partially
digested Mexican food, check out [Worship This!]” –Jason Utes
