BARRAGE – Melbourne’s Mark Barrage makes a nervy sound tonic, equal parts pop music EQd to breaking point and midnight crucifix synth-kraut. New album Delays finds the dissonant electronic songster in realms of hard sound, dance timings, band-ish arrangements and bleary-eyed nighttime sensation. Delays is a skittery, blunt mix of DIY electronic/minimal synth in the spirit of Australia’s Severed Heads and overseas labels Human Ear Music and Sacred Bones.

KNITTED ABYSS – Knitted Abyss is Lucy Phelan (1/2 of Naked on the Vague) and Anna John two Sydney AU. residents and staple down under weirdo makers… like a dark reverberation of down tuned psychedelic guitar murmur and gothy drum machine rhythm, backed by ghostly vocals and doomy echoes. This is a real hazy, foggy, nocturnal set of sounds for a new mutant world’ – Shaun Reed, Night People

COMATONE – Comatone is Greg Seiler. Influenced by the kinds of artists you’ll find on the warp and planet mu labels, with 5 albums and several other bits and pieces to his name, solo and colaborative released in the AU and UK that walk through IDM, Breaks and Textural experiments. The live sets are a carefully executed excursion through detail.
