State Of The Art RSD vinyl on webstores + other things

2013-05-06 11:38 by TravisB

Hope you've all been well.

I've been enjoying setting up a new studio space and making new sounds, fun!  You can see pics from a recent recording trip I took to the National Music Centre in Calgary, Canada on Instagram. I also visited a groovy piano and organ museum called Darnum Musical Village outside of Warragul, VIC in Australia where I hope to do some recording soon. If you live in the area, go check it out!

State of the Art 12" vinyl
In support of Record Store Day recently I put together a delicious pink vinyl 12" of State of the Art. It features original artwork by the guys from Rubber House, and a fantastic remix by one of my favourite bands The Chap. You can listen to that mix here.

If you aren't able to get down to your local record store, then you can find State of the Art on the Gotye webstore near you: Australia/NZ, North America, Europe/UK and beyond.

The vinyl comes with a free download of both tracks!

Oh, and while you're thinking about delicious vinyl goodies, have a gander at the album my other band The Basics put out on vinyl recently: Leftovers. It's yum, here's a taste.

The Great Gatsby soundtrack
You may have heard about Baz Luhrmann's new film The Great Gatsby? It promises to be a sweeping epic, I'm looking forward to seeing it on a big screen.

An older song of mine, Hearts A Mess, is featured on the soundtrack, and also in some way in the score of the film. I don't know exactly how yet. It will be exciting to see how it ended up in the final cut when I check it out at the cinema!

Toodlepip,

Wally
