Andras – Joyful

Beats in Space – Release: January 31st 2020

Something about acid house gets me instantly bobbing my head like an idiot. Fingers start pointing at some unknown thing of importance in the near distance, daft grin on my face. Listening to ‘Joyful’ resulted in a display of such symptoms, which persisted throughout the 7-track mini album.

Distress – A Compilation in Aid of Bushfire Relief

For those of us living overseas, it’s painful to witness the footage of people and wildlife currently affected by the huge bushfires raging across Australia. It can also be tricky to know how to help, or who to donate funds too in these kind of situations. In this case, some awesome musicians from Melbourne have rallied round the world’s electronic music community to donate tracks for a fun-raising compilation, with all proceeds going to Wildlife Victoria.

Craven Faults – Erratics & Unconformities

Leaf Label – Release: Friday 10 January 2020

Criss-crossing arpeggiations evolve and envelope with the opening ‘Vacca Wall’. If Briget Riley adopted synths instead of paint, you’d be halfway in visualising this track before hearing it. A hypnotic 17 minutes.
