So, the list of new tunes for tonight's show is pretty prodigious... Where to start? I guess with the lovely new album from Sydney pop experimentalists Sun! We've got two new samplings from Marcus Scissor Lock's new 3" CDR label Curt, we've got a stunning new compilation called Asleep on Trains on Shoeb Ahmad's Canberra-based hellosQuare Recordings...
Beautiful new album from Songs of Green Pheasant (especially the closing track), Part Timer's corker of a new album. And later on, typically excellent new stuff from Burnt Friedman, and junglist nostalgia from Shitmat...

A gig for youse all (1:31 am)

Bit of self-promotion here, folks, but also promoting some great Sydney & Melbourne artists:

It's Friday 28th September, 7:30pm to 11:30pm. Entry by donation, BYO, no smoking, all ages!
This gig was going to be at a warehouse space called 303, but the venue fell through. At the last minute a new gallery called Hellen Rose-Schauenberger Labratorium stepped in, and are letting us play there as part of their pre-opening stuffs. They're on cnr of Kippax and Waterloo Streets, Surry Hills.

The lineup:
Seaworthy doing their last show in Sydney for the year!
Raven - Peter Hollo from FourPlay/FBi's Utility Fog (that'll be me!) doing a rare solo set, cello + loop pedal + laptop processing.
Scissor Lock - Yr 11 student Marcus Whale doing guitar/vocals/loop pedals/FX pedals
Anonymeye - up from Melbourne, guitar + laptop processing
Seth Rees - up from Melbourne, guitar + processing + loops I think

We're looking at mostly ambient, atmospheric, experimental, semi-improvised stuff from all. Should be great, come along if you can!
