We are very proud to announce that Tame Impala (H.I.T.S. 003) has been nominated for Best Art Vinyl 2008. The cover artwork was painted by Mr Kevin Parker himself and the design was done by our very good friend Jonothan Zawada, who came to our rescue after our original design was rejected by the manufacturers!
There are 50 releases nominated and voting begins today. You can check out the nominations and vote (for Tame Impala of course) at Best Art Vinyl 2008 See more of Jonathan's incredible work at a zawada.com.au
Enormous thank you to everyone who helped make this release possible and to everyone who has supported it.

A few months ago we discovered Fairtilizer, a great online musical playground that allows artists, labels and media to share, promote and distribute new music. When Oliver got in touch with us to see if we would like to do a feature we jumped a the chance to be a part of what they call the 'do it yourself' music club. And that is the best thing about this site, they give you the ways and the means to go forth and do it all yourself, rather than be flogged over the head with what they think you should be listening to.
Hole in the Sky's playlist is currently featured on the site and includes an interview with Canyons. The playlist contains some old, some new and some yet to be released H.I.T.S. material.
