Metal Postcard Pulls One Of Our First Releases From (2006) Out Of The Vaults

Back in 2006 acid was a virtually forgotten genre.. not here at Metal Postcard or with New York's Innovaders who we believe do be one of the few purveyors of the sound that took it in a new direction.

Here's some information from the time of release and reviews

One Innovader is now a New York Policeman the other became a catholic friar….!

Credited with helping to revive New York's acid house music scene, the Innovaders stepped away from current trends in IDM and created a new sound that puts emphasis on gritty acid, melodies, and song structure. While many artists were trying to disect and copy the latest Autechre or Schematic Records sound,the duo looked to electronic dance music pioneers such as Derrick May and Adonis for inspiration. Using live performances as a testing ground, the Innovaders pounded out a new style of acid in the backrooms of many underground dance clubs.

“Micro Modular Thick House... Charms Over The Spiraling Drum....”
Rough Trade Website (UK)

Credited with helping revive new york's acid house scene, the innovaders have taken their cues from such legends as derrick may and adonis and turned out a stunning lo-fi acid assault. the emphasis is on melody and soul as all great techno should be. / San Francisco (USA)

Very acidic, very nasty, pretty damned funky and melodic all at once, and will definitely set dance floors on fire.
Losing (UK)

Glazed cosmic electro pop with Kraftwerk meets Jean Michel Jarre crossovers all set upon a floor throbbing robotically circular locked down mid 80’s euro disko groove.. Check out the duo’s my space site for a chance to hear their near legendary redraft of Morrissey’s ’Everyday is like Sunday’ which by all accounts is doing near illegal things at all the hippest underground joints across New York.
Chicken Fish (USA)
