Composer and serial instrument-fiddler Tim Shiel, who has recently been trotting the globe with Gotye, is compiling an album of remixes to celebrate several years of being the electronic somebody we used to know as Faux Pas. First grab is a serious little house rub of Sydney folktronic (non-ironically labelled, honest) artist Caitlin Park: Caitlin [...]

Similar to The Whip, our erstwhile heroes of thrashy electric pop in younger years, current blog champs from Chicago, Gemini Club, blaze off with their new single Sparklers – a simple pleasure with homicidal lyrics. Worth a spin or two. Sparklers by Gemini Club More Gemini Club

Ever get the feeling that your culturally lost? That which makes us Australian isn’t quite what your about? Ya KNow, the fourx the cricket and shit. Maybe the song is a play on this feeling or maybe it isn’t, either way the video is entertaining and I hear their shows are pretty [...]

Wild and oh so very deep, deep inside his sound lagoon. I’ve got a feeling Joel Hanna – Wilds, has been sitting inside a canyon, beside a fire on a very high rocky escarpment and or chewing wheat in a prairie cause his music sends you there! “There’s Ghosts Here” is probably the pop single [...]

Not sure who or what this band is about, but they’re apparently getting props on BBC 6 and deigned to bestow upon us a thick-as-syrup remix of their new single, the jovially titled song ‘I’ll Cut You’. Anyway, it’s nice – fans of Zola Jesus will get on down here: Follow the instructions above to [...]

A new, totally free, compilation of experimental and exploratory beats and breaks from Sydney’s Feral Media and Brisbane’s LoFly – two collectives stoking the fire beneath the glistening spit of Australian techn-innovation. Shits cray and ambient and often quite breath-taking all at the same time. Plus it’s free. Discover something new – the Jonathon Boulet [...]

Incredible new effort from Warp’s Hundred In The Hands. Following the hand-clapping nu-disco pop highlights of their self-titled LP, Red Night is resoundingly less optimistic. Flurries of industrial, machine-driven angst are weaved through penetrating vocal layers and symphonic atmospherics. The whole shebango feels a bit like wintertime at the School of Seven Bells. If that [...]

This Song Is Called Ragged and it’s named after the creature Jonathan Boulet adopted while on a holistic living retreat down near Kangaroo Valley, NSW. Ragged and Jonathan have become the firmest of friends, and Jonathan is regularly seen around trendy Sydney mexican eateries wearing Ragged much like you or I would wear a beard. [...]

Hyphy ghetto-club nonsense from Club Cheval’s Sam Tiba. His good chum and internet archaeologist, Mary Rachel Videoz, took the obvious next step of syncing it to unfortunate home dancing videos. This is what happened: -Mandu
