Cracked Actor join FM for Upstructures EP

upstructures-ep-cover

We have been big fans of Canberra 4-piece Cracked Actor since the release of their incredible debut album Iconoclast (via hellosQuare recordings) in early 2015.

After touring in support of the album the band returned in early 2016 with the Duo EP, a stripped-down collection from members Sebastian Field and Matt Lustri.

Now to round out the year the band joins the Feral family for a new EP, Upstructures. Revolving around the title track – taken from Iconoclast – the EP features previously unheard material, plus remixes from Feral cohorts Broken Chip and 0point1.

All the elements which made us fall in love with their music are still intact; the razor sharp song writing, lush arrangements, and glistening vocal melodies.

We are extremely excited to help the band bring this latest offering into the world. Listen via the player below, or head over to the Feral store to download here

The Clairaudience album – ten years and 10,000 miles in the making

clairaudiencealbumart-1-2Just released is the debut full-length album for Clairaudience. Based in Brooklyn but hailing from Australia, Europe and Rhode Island, this four-piece (Caroline Jumpertz, Danny Jumpertz, Franzi Szymkowiak and Heidi Patalano), has been recording and gigging in NYC for over three years. Recorded with engineer Abe Seiferth (Yeasayer, Eleanor Friedberger) between 2014 and 2016 at Transmitter Park Studios in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the album is a follow up to 2015’s acclaimed cassette/download EP Sun Damage.

Clairaudience formed in Sydney in 2006. Caroline and Danny emigrated to the USA in 2010 launching a new lineup with the additions of New York based multi-instrumentalists Heidi (guitar, bass, vocals) and  Franzi (Moog, guitar, bass, vocals). Fellow Australian Kerrii Cavanagh stepped in on bass guitar, appearing on the Sun Damage EP, but relocating back to Oz soon after, leaving the band as a 4 piece.

The release was delayed due to the unexpected collapse of Feral Media’s distributor Fuse Music and is the first instalment in our relationship with UK-based music company State 51. The album is available on CD and download via our Bandcamp store, and is streaming on Spotify, Napster, Apple Music, Soundcloud and many other corners of the internet.

Underlapper release remix collection

counterweight

Sydney band Underlapper have been fairly quiet since their album Softly Harboured was released in 2011. In fact the only new material to surface since was a one-off track titled ‘Stockholm’, released on Feral Media’s 10 year anniversary compilation.

The original line-up has since disbanded, and despite a few of the original members occasionally working on material it’s unclear at this stage what form it will take.

In lieu of anything new on the immediate horizon the band have gathered together all the remixes they created over the years into a single release titled Counterweight: Collected Remixes

The collection features remixes from a number of talented acts including Children of the Wave, Telafonica, and the now sadly defunct Sydney band Parades. The collection also includes a previously unreleased remix of the wonderful FourPlay String Quartet.

Reuben Ingall releases Microclimates

Microclimates cover final

We are extremely excited to present Microclimates, the latest release from Canberra artist Reuben Ingall.
We have been big fans of Reuben’s music since his stunning 2012 release Dealt and we are very proud to share this latest effort.

Ingall’s music is a mix of lonely pop and glitchy, psychedelic soundscapes created by processing guitar, voice and other sources through an array of home-made software patches.
The resulting songs are at once intimate and sincere but also cloaked with a sense of detachment, as if the technology is interfering with the music, like a lost transmission floating in the ether.

It is music for a forlorn future from a unique and talented artist.

Microclimates is available digitally and also as a limited edition CD with custom UV-printed sleeves featuring the stunning cover illustration from Robbie Karmel (pictured below).

Perfume Garden presents Splintered Time

splintered time

We are proud to present Splintered Time, the latest release from Brisbane artist Perfume Garden aka Errol Hoffman.

Splintered Time finds Hoffman continue his experiments into synth-heavy post-punk drawing on past influences such as Joy Division, Cocteau Twins and the film scores of Vangelis, to modern boundary-pushing artists such as Oneohtrix Point Never and Tim Hecker.

Composed using his extensive collection of old Casio keyboards, Hoffman counterbalances the ominous, subterranean drones and primitive drum machine beats with icy melodies that pierce through the sludgy depths with glistening clarity.

The wonderful peeps at whothehell.net premiered the album earlier this week calling it “the perfect soundtrack to enjoying your own post-apocalyptic fantasy on these long mid-winter nights”.
Check out the full review from whothehell.net here.
