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

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).
