It’s Amelia’s birthday! It’s Friday! It’s Corpus! It’s Hannahband! It’s Hockey Choir!

“Sydney Post-Hardcore duo Corpus don’t do things by halves – after launching their last EP, Everything All At Once Always, in an abandoned house, and spruiking their split 7” by crashing the Warped Tour’s east coast run they figured something a little out of the ordinary was required for the follow up. That’s how they found themselves in Tokyo in June at Bazooka Studios, Takadanobaba with Sydney producer Clayton Segelov (The Brain Studios). True to their enigmatic approach, Corpus chose to make the most of Clayton and their surroundings by recording in unorthodox spaces, incorporating the ambience of Toyko’s bustling streets, shady rehearsal rooms and atmospheric forests. Pushing the boundaries even further,Corpus chose to enlist the talent of Japanese noise artist, Kenji Kuroda into the recording process, his chaotic sounds injecting extra turmoil into Corpus’ signature angst. The resulting record, “The Sliding Scale of Morality”, is searingly personal, self-destructive, analytical, uncertain; both chaotic and controlled.”

“Old Mate is originally the solo project of Pat Telfer from Australian band Bitch Prefect (two albums on the Bedroom Suck label).Formed in Adelaide but nowadays based in Melbourne, Old Mate here presents its first album, “It Is What It Is” following a self-produced EP in 2012 and a debut 7″ single on Major Crimes in 2013. Still centered around founding member Pat Telfer, Old Mate is now a strong cast of 7 to 10 musicians including members of Peak Twins and Wireheads. Old Mate kept from its first songs a certain melancholy that spices up this debut LP. Eight songs all in false flat, constantly and brilliantly defying an infinite monotony. Suspended on the fragile life line floating on the horizon, these not-so-calm songs are glued together by the thick limbo of permanent doubt. Frequently staring at the blind spot, the reality spot, Old Mate conceived an album for the heaviness of the daily grind. A saxophone is sometimes warmly welcomed by the band, like sparkles in the Baudelairian spleen. One might think sometimes of Syd Barrett, Lou Reed, “Dreamy”-era Beat Happening, The Go-Betweens or some contemporary bands of the great Australian scene like Dick Diver and Kitchen’s Floor. Oh and some weird funky stuff too (check”Stressin”!). A first album with a great deal of character.” – SDZ Records.
