Label mix for A Closer Listen

scratching-the-surface

Recently we were asked to submit a label mix for experimental music website A Closer Listen’s ongoing mix series curated by guest contributors.

The mix entitled Scratching the Surface acts as a snapshot of the underground Australian music scene as we see it, with tracks from recent Feral Media releases alongside tracks from artists we enjoy such as Making, Reuben Ingall, Anonymeye, Option Command and Cold House.

The mix also includes tracks from new label signees 0.1 and Nimble Animal (both of whom have upcoming releases slated for 2013), as well as two upfront exclusives that bookend the mix. The first exclusive (which opens the mix) comes from AFXJIM with an amazing track taken from his forthcoming album. The second exlcusive (which concludes the mix) comes in the form of a remix of Sydney producer Loopsnake by Feral act Underlapper.

Many thanks to A Closer Listen for giving us the opportunity and thanks to all of the amazing music being made in Australia at the moment, a small fragment of which is included here.

Listen to the mix on mixcloud here and check out the full tracklisting plus a mini-interview on the A Closer Listen website here.

A Decade of Feral Media

After much planning, curating and compiling we are thrilled to announce the official release of Feral Media’s 10 year anniversary compilation – 10 (A Decade of Feral Media)

The release encapsulates everything that Feral Media stands for and is a true representation of our music and vision. All of the artists involved hold a special place in our hearts and we couldn’t be happier with their contributions. We would like to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone who was involved in making this release the outstanding piece of Australian music history that it is.

The compilation is now available to purchase digitally or as a limited edition Playbutton from the Feral Media bandcamp site here

Haunts on New Weird Australia

Haunts is a new project featuring Matt and Greg from Underlapper and renowned cellist Peter Hollo (Raven/Fourplay).

Ahead of their second ever live show the trio sat down with Stu Buchanan on FBi radio’s New Weird Australia program to chat about the project and record an exclusive live to air set. Both the interview and live set have been uploaded as part of the New Weird Australia podcast series which can be downloaded here

You can also catch some of the action from the Feral Media hosted gig at Sydney’s Dirty Shirlows in this wonderful video put together by the lovely folk at The Pyramid Scheme. The video features footage of all performers on the night including Making, Thomas William vs Scissor Lock and Simo Soo.
