Recently we were asked to submit a label mix for experimental music website A Closer Listen’s ongoing mix series curated by guest contributors.
The mix entitled Scratching the Surface acts as a snapshot of the underground Australian music scene as we see it, with tracks from recent Feral Media releases alongside tracks from artists we enjoy such as Making, Reuben Ingall, Anonymeye, Option Command and Cold House.
The mix also includes tracks from new label signees 0.1 and Nimble Animal (both of whom have upcoming releases slated for 2013), as well as two upfront exclusives that bookend the mix. The first exclusive (which opens the mix) comes from AFXJIM with an amazing track taken from his forthcoming album. The second exlcusive (which concludes the mix) comes in the form of a remix of Sydney producer Loopsnake by Feral act Underlapper.
Many thanks to A Closer Listen for giving us the opportunity and thanks to all of the amazing music being made in Australia at the moment, a small fragment of which is included here.
Listen to the mix on mixcloud here and check out the full tracklisting plus a mini-interview on the A Closer Listen website here.
We recently co-hosted a show with Red Door at the Red Rattler in Marrickville with all proceeds going to the Dirty Shirlows collective.
It was a fantastic night with incredible performances from Making, Nakagin, Haunts and Option Command, all of which were captured by the wonderful folk at Skydreams.
You can check out some excerpts from the evening below or watch all the performances on the Skydreams vimeo page here
We are thrilled to be co-hosting what is sure to be an incredible evening in Sydney on Thursday November 29th.
Feral Media and our good friend Scarlett Di Maio (aka Red Door) have gathered together some of our favourite Sydney acts for a fantastic evening of ecelectic & experimental music at the Red Rattler in Marrickville with all proceeds going to the Dirty Shirlows Collective.
Playing on the night are Making, Nakagin, Haunts and Option Command and to top it all off we have put together some great door prizes and giveaways for the night.
The Red Rattler is located at 6 Faversham St, Marrickville with the evening kicking off at 8pm. Further details can be found on the facebook event here.
If you are in Sydney on November 29th we would love to see you there!
Haunts is a new project featuring Matt and Greg from Underlapper and renowned cellist Peter Hollo (Raven/Fourplay).
Ahead of their second ever live show the trio sat down with Stu Buchanan on FBi radio’s New Weird Australia program to chat about the project and record an exclusive live to air set. Both the interview and live set have been uploaded as part of the New Weird Australia podcast series which can be downloaded here
You can also catch some of the action from the Feral Media hosted gig at Sydney’s Dirty Shirlows in this wonderful video put together by the lovely folk at The Pyramid Scheme. The video features footage of all performers on the night including Making, Thomas William vs Scissor Lock and Simo Soo.
