Indie Rock Coloring Book

The Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based nonprofit and all-around arbiter of cool whose goal is to unite indie rock artists with charitable causes by asking them to design t-shirts for the rest of us—with proceeds going to multiple charities.

Even better, they now have an indie rock coloring book for only $10.

Matt Berninger of The National puts it best:
"This is the greatest coloring book since coloring was invented. I've decided to have kids just so I'll have somebody to give this book to."
But I actually want this coloring book all for myself.  You get to color Broken Social Scene's complex maze, shade Bon Iver's enchanted water supply, and scribble on MGMT's wacky playground. Teach your favorite kid what it means to color outside the lines, or just have fun with it yourself.

The Yellow Bird Project even has a theme song by The Tallest Man on Earth.

(The Tallest Man on Earth is a Swedish folk singer who may well be The Coolest-Voiced Man on Earth.)
