Templar Sound Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Shabazz Palaces, whose Lese Majesty has been a pretty big deal this year, have elected to reissue this early self-titled mini-album from 2009, on red vinyl no less! Features the earlier, more embryonic version of the experimental hip-hop duo’s sound, valuable both for Shabazz historians and straight-up interested listeners.
Sydney based techno producer Thomas McAlister (Sean Thomas) takes his Cop Envy moniker and moves to Templar Sound for his second EP. Bringing two worlds together he meshes the tight low end of detroit and tops it off with dirty hoover synths and british rave nastiness. Sweaty and raucous, delicious.

Tuff Sherm / Dro Carey
Uniting two aliases on a 12” vinyl split EP, the rough, mechanical house of Tuff Sherm competes with Dro Carey’s off-grid experimentalism. Despite the different titles, nothing Eugene Hector produces ever really conforms to genre distinctions. Samples are mangled, jackin’ drums are raw and its all threaded with strange melancholy. New on Sydney’s Templar Sound.
