MAGIC TUNDRA

Magic Tundra's new double a~sided single Believe Me / Extraño is the first formal recording of a nomadic South American couple who have recently settled in Melbourne. It was produced by new industry talent Juan Celofán in Chile, recorded in Australia and finally mastered by Andrés Mayo in Argentina. Believe Me / Extraño (hac153d) is the first digital-only release on Half A Cow Records and out now.

During some downtime recently, I realised I wasn't embracing the modern world. You know ~ ipads, ipods, itunes, free u2 albums, food selfies. So Half A Cow has been busy lately making a whole lot of ye olde records/cds/goodtimes available online mainly via iTunes, Bandcamp and a few others I have no idea what they are.
