  Fortnightly weekly update time!    What have we been listening to this week?    We have the last Gillian Welch album The Harrow And The Harvest in on vinyl. It’s pricey, but well worth it and nicely put together.  A great album. Julian Cope had a lot to say about Simply Saucer. I never liked Julian’s music much, but his writing on the matter is g...
  Welcome to our fortnightly weekly update!    What have we listening to this week?    The Green Child LP featuring Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current) and Raven Mahon from Grass Widow is lovely, moody synth pop. If you like Stereolab, St Etienne, get on it. Bi-Hour are a  duo  from Tasmania. Very acerbic lyrics, songs are a mix of the D...
Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of what's been happening in Repressed Records. But first... What Have We Been Listening To?    Milk Music - Mystic 100’s is a far wilder psych ride than i’d imagined. By far their most interesting album. The Rebel is Ben Waller from Scotland’s mighty Country Teasers, and he’s playing in Sydney this Saturday night at the Gaeli...

Thanks everyone for supporting us this year. Our favourite part of this job is looking for and ordering new music, and its even better that it manages to pay some bills too! Thanks to all the bands, distros and labels who deliver the quality year in, year out. The 15 Years Of Repressed at Vivid was pretty sick too. Here is some of my favourite music released in 2017. The Stevens - Good (Chapte...
    Here's our best sellers of 2017! As usual, a great variety of music from all over the place which makes our life all the more exciting. Sydney band Orion got everyone pumped earlier in the year and we're glad they finished as our best selling album of the year. Worthy heavyweight champions. Roamin' Catholics was our first ever vinyl release on on the Repressed Records la...
Welcome to 2018! Thanks for all your support over the last year and Christmas period. A short update this week, a couple of import boxes and some local releases. Over the next few weeks we’ll be compiling our Best Of 2017 (unlike everyone else spitting them out Dec 1 we like to take our time and truly reflect) and our Best Sellers of 2017.  It’s always a fun thing to get down to.  &n...
