As 2014 draws to a close what better time to share a sneak preview of what’s in store for 2015.
Our first release for next year comes from Software of Seagulls, the electronic alter ego of Brisbane composer Chris Perren (Mr. Maps/Nonsemble).
Sunrise Industry, the lead single from the debut album of the same name is a sunny 3-minute collage of drums, guitars and clarinet, with raw textures and occasionally jilted rhythms offset by bright, optimistic sonorities reminiscent of artists such as Caribou, Tycho, and Cornelius.
The single is accompanied by a kaleidoscopic video in which lawnmowers, golf, and office equipment conquer all in a mid-century consumer happiness nightmare. Watch the video above and/or listen to the single via the player below.
Stay tuned for full album details ahead of its release in February.
Today sees the release of Brittle As Bones, the debut full-length from Sydney artist Setec aka Joshua Gibbs.
This gorgeous album finds Joshua exploring the depths of his distinctive sonic universe, combining found-sound percussion with looped acoustic instruments, long-forgotten samples and cascading vocal layers to create a unique and compelling listen.
Brittle As Bones is a joyous, intimate affair and we couldn’t be happier to share it with you.

2012 saw the release of Beyond Your Skies, the stunning fourth album from The Longest Day. And to finish off the year the duo have just completed a film clip and single edit for the track Closer to the Sun.
The clip was shot entirely on Super 8mm video which provides the perfect accompaniment for what is one of the album’s many highlights.

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