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
It’s been a wee while since our last update, so here’s a wrap up of all recent Feral-related news.
Aside from a new EP from label founder Danny Jumpertz, and a collection of remixes from Underlapper, there have also been some notable releases from other Feral artists.
The unmistakable 0point1 dropped an amazing new album called micro-flora (pictured above) via his bandcamp site, and word has it he is already working on a follow-up.
Canberra artist Reuben Ingall has followed his wonderful Microclimates album from last year with another beguiling collection for new label Tandem Tapes. The album is a split release with Indonesian artist Logic Lost and once again finds Reuben in top form. Head to the Tandem Tapes bandcamp site here to listen.
We have also been busy with the Virtual Mixtape series in collaboration with the fine folks at whothehell.net. Recent contributors have included Dro Carey, Corin, and Lucy Roleff. Keep an eye on the whothehell.net site for future instalments.
And finally, in new FM music news we will be releasing an EP from Canberra outfit Cracked Actor whose album, Iconoclast, was one of favourites from last year. Stay tuned for more details on the EP, and in the meantime check out Duo, a collection of stripped back reworkings from members Sebastian Field and Matt Lustri.
