Gregor
Silver Drop

Aussie youngster, Gregor, likes to make an eccentric brand of pop music. On his debut, Silver Drop he takes his cues from Talking Heads, Durutti Column and Arthur Russell. The lyrics are emotionally charged with Gregor having decided to lay himself open rather than hide behind what he thought would have been ineffectual metaphors. LP on Chapter Music.

Kath Bloom & Loren Connors
Restless Faithful Desperate

Alternative folk duo Kath Bloom and Loren (MazzaCane) Conners had quite a prolific stint in the 80s. Now the kind folk at Chapter Music are reissuing their classic album Restless Faithful Desperate, filled with gentle acoustic folk. The duo's heartfelt songs have influenced a fair share of artists, including Sonic Youth, Bill Callahan, and Mark Kozelek, and not without reason.

School Damage
A To X

Pop music as made by Melbourne young guns doing it on their own, with a sparky, punky, jumpy guitar band vibe. School Damage have the tight drums, bright organ leads and anti-virtuoso vocals that really make this kind of music shine, and their second album A To X contains fifteen tracks of that goodness! Lovely stuff.

Little Ugly Girls
Little Ugly Girls

Little Ugly Girls presumably chose their name 20 years ago when they formed. And they are made up of girls so maybe its ok. The strange thing is that this band has been going 20 years and this is their first album. That's a lot of prep but they've supported the likes of Bikini Kill before so that may give you some indication of where they are coming from.

Laura Jean
Devotion

Chapter Music present the latest LP from Australian Music Prize nominee and Jenny Hval collaborator Laura Jean. Devotion is quite a departure from the music of Jean’s previous albums, with the singer trading her previously folksy sound in for a peppy synth-pop look. Tracks like ‘Girls On The TV’ and ‘Touchstone’ wouldn’t sound out of place on Italians Do It Better.

Totally Mild
Her

Totally Mild hail from Melbourne and are fronted by vocalist Elizabeth Mitchell. Her is the band’s second album, which follows their 2015 debut, Down Time. Their indie-pop sound is lushly wrapped, a perfect vehicle for Mitchell’s pitch-perfect voice and balances darkness and light with panache.

Montero
Performer

This new LP from Australian ditty-spinner Montero was recorded with Tame Impala’s Jay Watson and Riccardo Damian, a man who has worked on records for Drake and Sampha. As one might expect from that cast list, Performer fronts cut after cut of expensive-sounding, vaguely psychedelic soft-rock. Tracks like ‘Vibrations’ sound like a lost collaboration between Burt Bacharach and Ariel Pink. Lush.

Asphixiation
What Is This Thing Called 'Disco'?

Never reissued since its initial 1981 release, the music of Asphyxiation, aka Philip Brophy (of Tsk Tsk Tsk) is now available once more! Chapter Music have remastered the weird post-punk disco of What Is This Thing Called ‘Disco’?, which is presented as one LP album and one 12” single (as with the original release), plus new liner notes.

Beaches
Second Of Spring

Australian four piece psych-rock band Beachers return with their third full length album. Woozy and hypnotic post-punk meets psychedelic pop, Second Of Spring brings crunching motorik drive, hazy vocals and psyched out guitars and cheeky synths. Great to drive into the sun to. Double album on LP and CD on Chapter Music.

The Stevens
Good

The Stevens might have the sort of name that is easy to forget but we think you might like their music. You certainly will if you like brash and melodic power pop. The Melbourne band make the kind of fuzzy lo-fi pop that isn’t as straightforward as it initially seems. It’s twists and turns recall Bob Mould or early Teenage Fanclub.

School Damage
School Damage

Defined by off-kilter keyboard riffs and swerving basslines, brand new outfit School Damage are stamping their mark on leftfield Aussi-pop scenes. "I think the internet calls it a quarter life crisis" explains Carolyn Hawkins, on the motives behind her self-titled debut; hence why this piece provides the perfect piece of escapism from social anxiety.

Holy Balm
Activity Mixes

With Holy Balm’s album Activity already out in the world and keeping people busy, here comes an EP release of remixes! Activity Mixes contains exclusive versions by Zanzibar Chanel, Moon B and András, with mixes that range from ‘Dub MIx’ and ‘’96 Mix’ to ‘Badass Boogie Mix’. Stylish house fun on this 12” from Chapter Music.

NO ZU
Body2Body2Body EP

NO ZU drag a pair of tracks off of their Afterlife album and hand them over to Jonny Sender of Konk and legendary band A Certain Ratio for reversioning. The latter is particularly interesting, as it marks the first time in eight years that the Ratio have recorded something! Plus a remix of each track by NO ZU themselves. Body2Body2Body is out on Chapter Music.

Jessica Says
Do With Me What U Will

Jessica Says had her career rudely interrupted by a major accident eight years ago, but she now returns to the musical arena with a record that engages with that recent past. Do With Me What U Will is a mature and catchy pop record that features Jessica’s cello as well as her vocals. CD / LP release on Chapter Music.

The Cannanes
A Love Affair With Nature

Aussie DIY legends The Cannanes originally released their magnum opus A Love Affair With Nature in 1989. Although the band have always operated at an definite underground level, their legendary status was confirmed when they had a pair of Converse shoes made in their honour. They’ve also been the subject of a book and documentary film. If you missed ‘em first time round, this reissue will solve that problem quite nicely.

Dick Diver
Calendar Days

Calendar Days was initially released in 2013 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music: now it sees reissue, courtesy of Trouble In Mind. Dick Diver’s sound is a bright and melodic kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. Pretty welcome on a rambly kind of sunny day. CD and LP editions.

Dick Diver
New Start Again

New Start Again is the debut full-length album of Australians Dick Diver. First released in 2011 by Melbourne’s Chapter Music, it’s now being reissued on Trouble In Mind. The sound is a sunny, rambling kind of indie pop: touches of 90’s slackerism but fronted by distinctly Australian-accented vocals. CD and LP editions.

Holy Balm
Activity

Holy Balm are Australian beat makers who have actually played Sydney Opera House. How do you even find the door? Anyway they produce a kind of bright, bouncy electronica that is aimed at dancefloors rather than home listening. They aim to use tricks such as closeness and atmospheric changes in order to get people up and dancing. 

The Goon Sax
Up To Anything

Look at the guy in the middle of the photograph? Look kinda familiar? Well it's Louis Forster son of Robert and...well...let's say the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree. The Goon Sax (brilliantly awful name by the way) play the kind of charming naive pop that a certain Australian band liked to peddle some years ago. They have another fine songwriter too in their ranks. From the few song clips I've heard, this should be really good fun.

Crayon Fields
No One Deserves You

Crayon Fields are a Melbourne, Australia group whose bright indie-pop has found popularity around the world. No One Deserves You is their first record in six years: that time seems to have been used honing Geoffery’s thoughtful lyrics and the record’s extremely shiny production style. Released by the Chapter Music label.

Smokey
How Far Will You Go? The S&M Recordings 1973-81

Vinyl on Chapter Music. The sheer number of heavy-hitters playing on this is reason enough to peak interest. Members of The Stooges, King Crimson, Quiet Riot, The Motels and David Bowie’s Tin Machine. Filled with 70s pre-punk era stoner jams, with excellent lazy LA afternoon stylings, somehow Smokey managed to slip under the mainstream radar of the time.

Kath Bloom
Pass Through Here

Available on 12” Vinyl LP and CD from Chapter music, Pass Through Here is the first album from Connecticut based folk musician Kath Bloom in 5 years. This release marks venturing into some new sonic territory, whilst keeping the rawness of her much more stripped down recordings from the '80s. Moving to Carolina to record with Jeff Hassay and Levi Strom, washes of synthesizer underline Bloom’s heart breaking vocals.

Laura Jean
Laura Jean

Laura Jean opted for a rockier vibe on 2011's 'A Fool Who'll', but the Melbourne folkie returns to her strengths on this self-titled effort with a stark and more stripped down aesthetic. The record has a couple of startling collaborations courtesy of producer John Parish, who offers up his vocal talents, and Norway's experimental genius Jenny Hval, who also performs backing duties with her unique voice.

Tully
Tully

Chapter Music have been reissuing Tully records left right and centre for the past years, and the band's self-titled 'Tully' is the final record to get such treatment. It was initially released in 1970, when the psych, acid and surfin' rock Aussies were perhaps most prevalent in their scene and when they were most into pulling off their ridiculous improvisation tricks.

Geoffrey O'Connor
Fan Fiction

Melbourne based songwriter Geoffrey O'Connor once fronted twee pop quartet the Crayon Fields, where he learned to take quirky press shots; with that under his belt, he now performs as a solo act with zero guitars and a lot of synth. 'Fan Fiction' is his new record, full of dark-room pop songs upended with spry beats.  Tracks: Never Have You Looked So Good Her Name On Every Tongue Jacqueline I Never Cry Please  Into My Hands Another Time My Greatest Hit Is It Really Happening Now Giving It Away Centre Of The Room
