I'm inexperienced in drawing type, so I thought I could spend a little time to do a simple wordmark.
I drew everything from scratch. I took some liberties with the A, like losing exaggerated serifs. I also added some notches in the E's and L. And I improved the relationship between the EA and LE characters.
NB: Drawing S's are hard.

Nice work Louie :)
Cool stuff! Yeah S's are ridiculous to get right :D
This area could be improved. It appears as if the L's serif is cut off by the E which doesn't work well.
Tail of the S seems odd especially compared to the serif on the other end. The visual weight seems imbalanced partly because of this making it seem top heavy and leaning back.
You improved an already perfect album cover.
not sure if the notches were necessary (not really visible on first glance) but this is great work, especially from scratch! the EA relationship is exceptionally good.
I really like that background color and noise intensity almost exactly match that of dribbble's.
oh boy! you just make me listen Lady Madonna :-)
The 'A' is missing the little bit on the top right, but this looks good, nice work!
I didn't even thing twice about anything in the design, and that's how you know you succeeded.

Since the previous shot in regards to typography, I made the B a tiny bit bolder and made its serifs slightly larger. I also elongated the T's a little more.

Where's my credit for telling you what to do with the LE? :P
Stephen, it's designed that way.
