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...
Back into our weekly updates, all refreshed and primed for a new year!  But First, What Have we Been Listening To?    Bill Converse’s records on Dark Entries really helped us through the end of the silly season.This Texan mixes pre-”club” electronic music (Kraftwerk and companies motorik rhythms, 70s synth arpeggios) with the beginnings of Motor City Techno. Kind of medi...

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...
This will be the last update before Christmas, so we wanted to say thanks for the support and we hope you all have a great break. We’ll be closed Public Holidays only, so Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. Our End Of Year lists will be up in January just in case a new lp drops and wipes the floor with everything that came before. Total Control - Laughing at The System EP re-stocks are on...
    Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of what's been going down at Repressed Records. Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week? Our new cassette deck has been getting a good work out! Back on the Enderie cheer squad, especially the II tape on Paradise Daily. The Oily Boys “promotional tape” comeback is an absolute belter and back listening...
    Welcome to the Repressed Records weekly update. Had bit of a delay with a huge shipment from the UK. We'll include that in next weeks update.  Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week?    Princess Nokia “1992 Deluxe” is a whole lot of fun. For $7, you can’t go wrong with Roots Manuva - Brand New, Second Hand on CD. Just listening to a t...
       Welcome to our weekly update, our  highlights package of our comings and goings.     What have we enjoyed listening to this week? The new Sex Tourist LP is definitely one of the best things you’ll hear from Sydney this year. I like how it starts like you’re gonna dance, but the bleakest, driest vocals  in Australian history s...
      Welcome to the weekly update, our highlights package of what's been going down at Repressed Records..  What have we been listening to this week? The album by JLIN called Black Origami on Planet Mu. Minimal yet always interesting and kinda danceable. I'm probably the only person in Australia listening to the Sleeping Beauties LP, featuring members of The H...
       Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records.  Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week? Bass Clef - Acid Tracts is a 2 lp set of minimal, wobbly, strange yet catchy techno from the UK in 2013. It’s been on non-stop here for over a year. Still enjoying the new John Maus LP “Screen Memories”. Walks a...
       Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records.   Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week? The first Lp by two piece blackened doom band Ragana “Wash away” is bleak but lovely too.  I’m pretty sure George Best once came to play soccer for Blacktown City when I was a kid and never showed up....
      Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records.    Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week? I have weak spot for a bit of death metal, and Melbourne’s Faceless Burial damn hit the spot. Bit of a metal renaissance with them and Sewercide putting out some great stuff lately that transcends the studs...
      Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records.    Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week?    Golem “Orion Awakes” came out “circa1976” it says here, produced by Genius P Orridge under the name Toby Robinson. Great bit of krautrock inspired psych made by anonymous musicians who ...
         Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records.    Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week?    The new Laurel Halo LP Dust has really clicked. Not that we didn’t enjoy it immediately but a record that is at some points vocal driven synth pop, while also evokes Su...
     Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records. Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week? Been really enjoying the Alex Cameron LP “Forced Witness”. More satirical take on masculinity than cheap irony, he’s a character who’s simultaneously pathetic, funny and at times touching, like when he’s meeting women on...
          Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package of the week in Repressed Records!   Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to this week?   Been giving The Necks - Unfold more of a listen lately, especially at home. I especially love their album Open from 2013. I lent a guy some cardboard to send an LP somewhere o...
      Welcome to our weekly update, a highlights package from seven days at Repressed Records. Firstly, what have we enjoyed listening to? High Speed & The Afflicted Man - Get Stoned Ezy LP. Excellent blown out “hippy-punk”space-rock from the UK 1982. Think Flipper attempting Hawkwind. Aerosmith - Rocks which has won us over to the ways of Tyler and Perry (doubtle...
