Garage pop scamps Fair Ohs have a new single on a postcard! Yes, it's a postcard with a hole in the middle and a groove on the picture side. I got a similar thing for my parents last time I went to Toronto which had a boomy-voiced Canadian dude talking about the CN Tower over some atmospheric synth music. However, there is a catch. As you might expect from a record that's been pressed onto cardboard instead of vinyl, the sound quality here is bloody awful unless you're a lo-fi fetishist who wants everything coated with as much static fuzz as possible (in which case you're in for a right old treat). It comes with a download so you'll be able to compare and contrast what the song's supposed to sound like with the hissy postcard reproduction. The pointless format is either gonna appeal to you or not, I suppose, but I personally wouldn't put up with something that sounded like that in my house, so as far as I'm concerned it's like getting a download with artwork. On the bright side, though, the single itself is a lovely piece of summery garage pop that, when played on a less crappy format, is actually dead catchy and charming. Excellent band, good song, stupid novelty format idea.
