Latest Feral News

micro flora

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.

Godspeed….

 

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).

Feral Media and LoFly Recordings are proud to present the third edition in our annual Strain of Origin compilation series.
The labels once again act as curators enlisting a host of amazing local artists including: Aoi, Nakagin, The Townhouses, Bon Chat, Bon Rat, Children of the Wave, Scissor Lock, Spartak, Trjaeu, Anomie, Vacant Lake, Inch Time, ¹fm¹, Reuben Ingall, 0point1 and Sadglint, with Feral/LoFly label artists ReSTReAM, aheadphonehome & Underlapper making a return appearance.

The concept remains the same with each artist submitting a track to be remixed and in turn receiving a track from which to create their contribution for the release and once again the results are nothing short of amazing.

Strain of Origin III is another uncompromising entry in the series, providing a comprehensive snapshot of both new and established Australian artists.
With the undeniable musical talent showcased on this years effort, we can’t wait to continue the series in 2014.

Label mix for A Closer Listen

scratching-the-surface

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.
