A few posts back I posted Sydney-based chillwave artist Oliver Tank.

His debut EP Dreams is out as a digital download on bandcamp and iTunes, however there is a large push to get the release pressed onto vinyl. This is very expensive and is being funded by pre-orders of the album itself- so if you’d like to support amazing hard-working musicians and get a physical copy of the vinyl, I urge you to check out:

Oliver Tank has been on the up and up lately, getting his music featured in this very powerful (and popular) gay-rights video by Get Up! brought his music to a-lot more people.

Vinyl has been deemed ‘old-fashioned’ by many (any they are quite right), in-fact, my father was surprised they still release new things on vinyl. The truth is, there’s something magical about vinyl that a CD or MP3 file lacks- that is, that the grooves in the wax literally are  the physical manifestation of the music. It’s the closest thing we have to capturing sound into something you can hold in your hands. There are still Djs that work using vinyl exclusively, and there are many more (myself included… albeit my collection is pathetic) that collect their favourite songs/artists in vinyl records. They are rarities that you often cannot find anywhere else. In this case with Oliver Tank you can not only be involved in helping create the vinyl, but be an owner of one of the only 300 copies.
