Nimble Animal releases Bleak Moments

Bleak Moments

Feral Media are thrilled to announce the release of Bleak Moments, the stunning new EP from Nimble Animal aka Dom Stephens (Outerwaves/Oh Ye Denver Birds).

Bleak Moments finds Dom at the top of his game continuing the rich sonic experiments of his debut album Dumb Dirge, and underpinning them with an indie-pop sensibility resulting in a more immediate and personal release.
The EP takes cues from early electronic artists such as Tangerine Dream and Jürgen Müller, transforming them into modern pop music ventures with Dom’s warmly inviting production and catchy vocal melodies.

Bleak Moments is a welcome addition to the Feral Media catalogue, epitomising the labels ethos in promoting interesting and eclectic local music.

Strain of Origin II out now!

Strain of Origin II is our latest collaboration with Brisbane label Lofly and the second instalment in what will be an annual release.

In 2010 Feral and Lofly released The Strain of Origin which saw artists from each label remixing each others work in an interstate musical swingers party. The resulting compilation was released to critical acclaim which prompted thoughts of a second compilation and the possibility of an annual release. To keep the concept fresh the labels looked outside their own rosters and put the word out to a number of like-minded artists who have helped push this second compilation into a new realm both musically and geographically.

Strain of Origin II features contributions from AXXONN, Ambrose Chapel, Anonymeye, Dot. AY, Elroy 4.0, Jonathan Boulet, Mystery Twin (who also provides the amazing covert art for the release), Outerwaves, Simo Soo and Zeal. Whose contributions are bolstered by return performances from Feral and Lofly artists AFXJIM, Aheadphonehome, Alpen, Broken Chip (aka Option Command), Comatone, Mr Maps, ReSTReAM, Subsea, Thomas William, Toy Balloon and Underlapper with Feral artist Gentleforce also joining the ranks.

This release is a true testament to the high quality of music being made in Australia and we here at Feral Media could not be happier with the results.
