Midday Moon, Ambient and Experimental Recordings from Australia & New Zealand 1980 - 1995

Aussie label Bedroom Suck brings us Midday Moon, an excellent new double-LP comp of ambient and experimental musics out of Australia and New Zealand taken from the period of 1980 to 1995. The recordings have origins on various micro-labels, private pressings and the artists' own personal archives. Melbourne DJ / archivist Rowan 'Sanpo Disco' Mason has delved deep into a largely uncelebrated world of latter twentieth-century Aussie New Age and beyond. And we're glad he did. 

Good Morning
Prize // Reward

Good morning to you too, lads. The debut full-length LP from this friendly Aussie group is the sort of nice young record that you could take home to meet the parents. Tracks like ‘Elevator’ and ‘Mirror Freak’ are lo-fi Millennial pop par excellence. The press release advises us not to compare the group to Mac Demarco, but, like, they do sound like Mac Demarco.

Primitive Motion
House In The Wave

Piano, saxophone and a cast of comfortingly familiar atmospheric sounds blend together in this would be film soundtrack. Primitive Wave have created an album that sounds as natural and inviting as can be, the timbres and atmosphere lacking studio polish, but taking on instead an intimacy rarely felt.

Lower Plenty
Sister Sister

Lower Plenty are a Melbourne-based four-piece who make mature, reflective and idiosyncratic folk music. It takes a certain gift to be able to pull off blatantly detuned strings, guitars and vocals but somehow it works in this band's favour, making their dawdling, introspective arrangements instantly recognisable. Sister Sister is an organic and grown-up album for folk-lovers everywhere. Released as Vinyl LP on Bedroom Suck Records.

Ela Stiles
Ela Stiles

Over the years, Ela Stiles has built a name for herself as an adept musician in Sydney's often strange and varied music scene. Moving beyond her work in local favourites Songs, she became a driving force in Melbourne outfit Bushwalking, releasing two records with the band while still based in Sydney and working on numerous projects. Now, Ela has taken another hairpin turn, revealing a solo record comprised entirely of a-cappella performances. It is her voice alone that fills the listener's ear, and then her voice again, rising and falling in different vocal patterns both rhythmic and melodic, turning in on itself and creating layers of startling sound.

Each artist offers up a track either rare or new: here's to the future of Bedroom Suck! 

Martyr Privates
Martyr Privates

Doing their bit to keep the vibrant Aussie rock 'n' roll scene alive, Martyr Privates present their self-titled new record, a collection of heavy rock tunes with indie and psych rock influences to their side. Martyr Privates have taken a bit of the recent garage rock obsession in their stride, but they cast a long list of inspirations, from Moon Duo to Spacemen 3. 

Peter Escott
The Long O

Peter Escott has been carefully learning and unlearning the piano since childhood; recorded an unknown number of self-released, increasingly intricate and discordant instrumental piano CD-Rs,  added a fairly serviceable singing voice to his playing on his let's-try-something-that-might-make-sense-to-people debut Slowcoach (independently released, 2008); then, to his own astonishment on top of everyone else's, made a sudden anxiety-defying shift from shy retirer to flamboyant frontman with compact, concise bass-and-machines duo The Native Cats, who have thrilled crowds from Gonerfest in Memphis to the Sydney Opera House. And now, like an introvert finding an empty room at a house party, Escott has returned to keeping his own counsel and suffering his own consequences, with his new solo album for Bedroom Suck Records, The Long O. Featuring no other performers and limited to the only instruments he knows how to play - piano, synth, melodica, and a solitary, awkwardly self-taught guitar chord - The Long O is as haunting as it is direct, with Escott's voice lending a reserved gravity to the often soaring arrangements.
