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.

Preview: Software of Seagulls

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.
