Edit: Cover image replaced due to “appropriation issues” (see comments for info)
I found Datahowler when his album cover above caught my eye, pretty and simple and not too emotional, just the way I like my vocals. Download his 2 song EP here for FREE.
Orchid Tapes is run by the musician Foxes In Fiction, he shares a ton of free EPs by friends and musicians alike and also keeps the cassette community having something to listen to by doing limited runs of albums on cassettes. The most recent release is by 16 year old Trans-Bedroom Sound which includes some real nice airy tones and a perfect soundtrack for an afternoon nap. Pick up the FREE EP here.
Half of Sweden’s slow disco duo Studio comes to us as D. Lissvik is back with a serious world music guitar solo that’s supported by some dark hypnotic sounds, a nice lengthy piece, pretty interested in hearing the rest of this LP.
Disco done unlike anything else these days brought to you by The Swiss.

Thank you so much for the post. I actually did the album cover as well. I love ISO50 and the aesthetic here so much. Thanks for the support.

Bravo, sir. This mix forced me to awkwardly dance around the office, much to the chagrin of myself and others. Well played…

Sorry I Andy i didn’t know, we’ll just have to do another Andy Gilmore post on ISO50 with updated work

I would like to say this was a collage and I was gravely mistaken as to the legal rights of this. I just made this as a collage never intended for sale or even to be a release of this size. Andy contacted me and I’m
sorry to any parties offended the cover will be reworked and was never intended as thievery in any way. Once again sorry I was gravely mistaken on how images can be used in collages and it won’t happen again. Hopefully people enjoy the music still.

I have spoken to Andy and I will be reworking this. What a terrible misunderstanding. I will have you a new cover shortly so your blog doesn’t have a gap in it. Thanks to everyone for being cordial, especially Andy.

16-years-old, eh? Young talent around here, that’s what I like to see :)

I recognized that as Andy Gilmore’s art immediately. By the way, Andy Gilmore fucking rocks.
Datahowler says:June 11, 2010 at 2:31 pm
Here’s the new altered version. All sites have been contacted. I’m trying as hard as I can to make it right.
Datahowler says:June 11, 2010 at 2:34 pm
Ugh. Royally failing at everything today.

Many thanks for understanding and changing the picture! Your support is greatly appreciated!

Datahowler – shit happens. Great music, glad you could ultimately shed some light on Gilmore’s fabulous work. Cheers.

Datahowler – I agree with Jorgen. Stuff happens. You made it right. Thanks for the music.

Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know that Warren and I have decided to do a cassette release of my EP Elmwood, with all profits going to the development of future releases on Orchid Tapes.
Thanks for listening,
