Ollo.. the best electronic outfit ever to come out of Sydney are playing a number of gigs in the city (including the Sydney Opera House) before moving lock stock and barrel to London later in the year.
To say thankyou to their fans they’ve issued a remix (digital only release) of their AMP/Coopers Best New Music Australia nominated album from last year “Ape Delay”
Here’s where you can get hold of it http://metalpostcard.bandcamp.com/album/ape-delay-remixes
And here’s the lovely artwork…
We kid you not – this is going to the factory next week – and it’s great
Some days, the Internet can feel like and endless trove of musical riches — like on Friday, when a friend linked me to Pinks Quieter, an artist blending airy new age music with the thump and pop of D.C. go-go.
Turns out, Pinks Quieter is the alias of Charlie Salas-Humara, 38, of Portland, Ore., a musician who, after years of touring in prog-rock bands The Planet The and Panther, currently releases most of his material under another alias, Grapefruit.
I tracked down Salas-Humara to ask how a guy living in the Pacific-Northwest came up with the most psychedelic go-go album we’ve ever heard.

Check out the debut digital single by the newest artist on Metal Postcard, Spacecreep. He’s a bit of a polymath as he’s first and foremost a visual artist with rather a dab hand at photography.
We were impressed by his experimental take on MBV and Spaceman 3 type sounds . Check out Turnstile To Tomb on Bandcamp
