Their album from 2013 Worlds Floating by was a real store favourite. Their new one is called Pulsating Time Fibre.

Nic's Picks!! Russell St Bombing LP (Smart Guy) Russell st Bombing is Al and Zephyr from Total Control and Eastlink. There’s inklings of both members previous recorded output, such as the moments where Lower Plenty enters into murky Xpressway/early Dead C territory, Zephyr’s clever-yet-subtle guitar deviations in Eastlink and a similar mystic vibe to Al’s fantastic SNAKE cassette, but...
Three cheers for No Patience Records in Adelaide! They've sent us the new EP from Brisbane's paranoid synth lords Multiple Man and the 7" from WA hardcore band Prag. Multiple Man EP "Persuasion" contains four almost danceable tracks. Bit more sleek than their previous efforts, it has an early electro / Tom Ellard vibe about it with that characteristic darker edge. Listen HERE. Buy HERE. Pr...
Cool Death have delivered the new SOMA COMA LP "Dust" to us. It's a damn sensational, raging, nasty album. Australia is punk capital of the universe. Have a listen here. You can buy here.  RUSSEL STREET BOMBINGS is Al from UV Race, Total Control, Dick Diver etc and Zephyr Pavey of Eastlink and Total Control. As you'd expect, it sounds NOTHING like either have done whilst being g...

Here's a few excellent albums that have slipped through to the keeper unnoticed that we feel deserve a fair hearing.  Dreamsalon - Soft Stab  If you like Eastlink and Constant Mongrel, you'll love this Seattle band featuring members of the A-Frames. LISTEN   BUY Tom Ellard - E...

A guy with a laptop and another guy ranting like a cross between Mark E Smith and ...

We sold more than ever and there was widespread excitement for our best sellers too that reached beyond our usual circle. Everything from synth based music to punk, jangly Go-Betweens inspired pop, experimental music, electronic music, garage. We're proud to represent such a...
