Outer Limits Recordings
I heard about Outer Limits Recordings while I was in New York a little while back. Ariel Pink was having an NYE show and OLR was also on the bill. At first listen I thought it was an Ariel Pink side project or maybe his new record label but the project actually belongs to ex-Test Icicles member Sam Mehran, born here in Miami but moving away to Australia a few years later (of course…) OLR is both a label and an artist. It’s an umbrella for his numerous projects over the years, Matrix Metals, Yoga, Explorers, 90210 & The Sweethearts to name a few.
I like OLR because of how he creates these pop gems with such limited recording equipment. He’s waiting for someone to buy into OLR to pursue a full length in a proper studio. We’ll just have to wait and see. For now buy these fun releases; Foxy Baby is out on Not Not Fun. Julie 7″ is available from Olde English Spelling Bee, and I need My T.V. 7″ is available from Olde English Spelling Bee and Transparent. Don’t forget to check out his youtube channel, where he’s constantly uploading videos of OLR and his other various alias’s.
