LE RACCOURCI (LP+MP3)
12" 03.10.18
lp with digital download card. selected by sky girl co-conspirer julien dechery, le raccourci culls 15 tracks from ganderas extensive cassette discography, discarded dat recordings, and split cd with lyon toy music project klimperei. while ganderas nostalgic melodies incidentally parallel with the piano key manoeuvres of pascal comelade, robert haigh and dominique lawalrée, le raccourci could only stem from the escapist desires of one eric morin.

OZ WAVES(LP+MP3)
12" lp+mp3 27.02.17
efficient space continues to expose australias esoteric musical history with oz waves - a collection of 80s diy recordings, compiled by odd wave anthropologist steele bonus. definitive proof that inhabitants of the down underground were links in a global network of creative kooks, oz waves connects those who utilised mobile recording rigs and small press releases to create and disseminate misfit synth-punk, tape loop experiments and inner city pop. through overseas mail order exchanges, anonymous groups like zerox dreamflesh could find place on belgian compilations, while chris and cosey lullabied their son to sleep with irena xero and her interdisciplinary art collective zip. bonus selects 10 survivors from the fertile period (1982-1989), most of which were only issued on cassette in tiny editions of 5 to 100 copies. m squared affiliates prod join the extraterrestrial software seduction, he dark ages minimal wave neglect and the irreverent cut ups of the horse hes sick and mk ultra & the assassins of light. the remaining tracks have been sourced from musicians private archives and are being officially released on oz waves for the first time - andy rantzens industrial dub itch-e & scratch-e precursor, the buoyant vocal-drone of ironing music and moral fibro, sydneys short lived answer to weekend and marine girls. with detailed track by track notes, lines are drawn to severed heads, scattered order and other

JAN 66
12" 30.10.17
home recorded above a lawyers office and next door to a brothel, the retrospective is lead by the earth shattering digi stepper rock steady. originally intended for an abandoned dub album, rock steady and fantasy dub were saved from the cutting room floor by australian cd-only compilations on creative vibes and vital collective clan analogue, while green river was never released. now demanding wider appreciation, the dubs finally find union with green man’s new york hip hop/dancehall style, lifted from his second solo album the blue hour vol. 3: deep blue. humbly excelling in all electronic forms, rantzen helped guide techno-rave duo itch-e & scratch-e through the 90s with paul mac. winning the inaugural best dance release category at the 1995 aria awards, mac thanked all of sydneys ecstasy dealers, without whom this award would not be possible, while rantzen stayed at home. the two would also operate incognito as boo boo & mace and screensaver, often collaborating on looney dubs with sheriff lindo - the master of seismic shocks down under. rantzens earliest work stretches back to pelican daughters, an ensemble who proliferated industrial-leaning ambient and tape loop experiments

MIDNITE SPARES COMPILED BY ANDRAS AND INSTANT PETERSON (LP+MP3)
12" 13.09.16
midnite spares, australian music devotees andrás and instant peterson hold a candle to overlooked avant-pop and electronic works by antipodean artists and outsiders working through the 80s and 90s. through co-presenting weekly radio show strange holiday, the duo slowly upturned their locale for inspiration - archives, country bookstores, private collections and convenience stores, searching for a place to anchor their own identities in the oceans of the island continent. the 10 tracks acknowledge a minor history, passed on via a network of friends, friends of friends, the libraries of radio station 3rrr and more often than not, the artists themselves. renowned mixed media artist maria kozic enters with the mysterious downbeat of trust me, her partner philip brophy responsible for digital and analogue sonic construction. a recurring character in andrás and instant peterson’s investigations, brophy reappears with a score piece from his divisive feature film salt, saliva, sperm and sweat, recorded as ??? (pronounced “tch tch tch-). other links are thread under the surface. melbourne inner north experimentalist david chesworth explores his australiana songcraft leading whadya want?. the short lived project also featured philip jackson, whose duo the couch is restored from fast forward’s dance issue - a pioneering cassette fanzine published by early-80s 3rrr
