More scintillating sounds tonight! hellosQuare, from Canberra, goes from strength to strength, with two new releases this week: Seaworthy have a split 3" with M. Rösner, and Adrian Klumps has a new trio with Abel Cross and Ryan Finn called 3ofmillions - stupendous stuff.
There's a new album out from The Herd, as you've probably, er, "herd". For full disclosure, I'm playing on a couple of tracks ("The King is Dead" and Kenny's lovely track "The Next Movement", which I played tonight), but I'm a big fan anyway, and it's awesome :)
We've also got Nat Baldwin, double bass player, ex-basketballer, ex-member of Dirty Projectors...
We have a stunning new track from Autechre, from their new release Quaristice.Quadrange.ep.ae, which is dribbling out track-by-track over the next week and a bit - 8 tracks already available to download via the link! The track I played tonight is their funkiest in a while, in their own sweet way. Also immense new(ish) dubstep from Bucharest's TRG, and some new Planet µ goodness courtesy of Plan B Magazine - a cover CD for the current issue, naturally called Plan µ.
And snuck away near the end of the show, a new track from Part Timer - more next week, from his latest swag of tracks that he sent my way. Always a pleasure!

Gig of the week is this Thursday at the Excelsior Hotel on Foveaux St Surry Hills: Underlapper, Telafonica and Ampersand bringing post-rocky delights. But also, from Wednesday through to Saturday The Necks are playing some very special shows at the Studio @ the Sydney Opera House, with visuals supplied by drummer Tony Buck. Should be magical.
