Setec joins the Feral roster

Setec

We are extremely excited to welcome Setec (aka Sydney-based multi-instrumentalist Joshua Gibbs) to the Feral family.
Joshua has been making music under the Setec moniker since 2012 and first came to our attention via the amazing I’ll Be Good EP.

Setec’s music is a joyous, intimate affair combining found-sound percussion with looped acoustic instruments, long-forgotten samples and cascading vocal layers to create a unique and compelling sonic universe.

We will be releasing his debut full-length Brittle As Bones next month. In the meantime you can listen to Water or Concrete, the first single from the album via the player below.

0point1 releases debut album Clean Dirt

We are extremely proud to present Clean Dirt, the debut full-length from 0point1 aka Melbourne-based artist Bob Streckfuss.

Ever since we became aware of Bob’s work we knew this album was going to be special, and now that it’s finally here we are certainly not disappointed. The album follows on from his 17 minute epic The Dance of Mechanical Birds which provided an insight into his restless, creative world.

Clean Dirt is a work of startling beauty and intricate composition merging elements of dream pop and found sound electronica with complex rhythms and ethereal vocals.
The intricate manipulation of acoustic sources reveals a dichotomy between the organic and synthetic elements giving the music a frenetic, endearing quality.
Brimming with tireless creativity and a seemingly endless pool of ideas, the album is an exciting statement from a unique new voice amongst the current musical landscape.

Clean Dirt is available digitally and as a limited edition printed USB which contains bonus tracks and artworks.

Later this month we will release Clean Dirt, the debut full-length from 0point1 aka Melbourne-based artist Bob Streckfuss.

The album is a work of startling beauty combining elements of dream pop and found sound electronica with frenetic IDM rhythms and ethereal vocals. Clean Dirt follows on from the epic 20 minute suite The Dance of Mechanical Birds released via Feral Media in 2013.

The lovely folk at A Closer Listen have premiered Cartoon River, the first preview from the album along with a brief interview with Bob.

Seasons series concludes with Autumn EP

We are extremely proud to present the Autumn EP, the fourth and final instalment in our acclaimed Seasons series.

The EP opens with Angel Eyes aka producer Andrew Cowie who continues to mine the rich nostalgia of 80’s synth music through the warped lens of a VHS player.
Lower Spectrum follows with Fall, an undeniably catchy piece inspired by the shifting of balance between night and day and the duality of light and dark as Autumn draws to a close and Winter looms.
Golden Blonde relish in their distinctive musical palette, combining striking drum patterns and lush male/female harmonies flanked by warm organ lines that erupt into cacophonous noodling in the track’s final moments.
Feral Media stalwart Comatone closes proceedings with Moving Along Away From It, a departure from his pummelling breakcore and drum & bass that is reminiscent of the self-described ‘valium-hop’ of his 2007 split 12″ Albert and Leonard Put Things in Holes.

The Autumn EP is a fitting end to the Seasons series, encapsulating the diversity and originality heard across all 4 EPs and providing closure on what has been an outstanding accomplishment for the label and the artists involved.

On May 19th we will release the Autumn EP, the fourth and final instalment in our acclaimed Seasons EP series.
To whet your appetite we have uploaded the amazing contribution from Lower Spectrum aka Ned Beckley (pictured above). According to Beckley the track entitled Fell, represents the duality between light and dark and its transition as Winter looms.
