It’s been a long time between drinks, which isn’t surprising since I don’t drink very much.

Please read on for a sobering update on the world. 

Braille Face: New music from Spirit Level

Tim Shiel and I started a label called Spirit Level a little while ago to support the Australian release of Zammuto’s brilliant sophomore recording Anchor.
We have something new to share with you, this time from a Melbourne producer who has been prolifically creating new work over the last year (12 albums in 12 months!) and this is the first song to be officially released from this collection.

His name is Braille Face, he crafts gorgeous ambient pop music, and you can listen to his debut single Glow here.

Bibio's new song The Way You Talk

Bibio’s album Silver Wilkinson was such an aurally immersive delight, I was thrilled the man approached me to sing on a song from his new record A Mineral Love.
It’s a lovely slowly unfolding piece with wave-like layers of chorused Clavinet washing over it and it’s called The Way You Talk.

MESS (Melbourne Electronic Sound Studio)
I’m supporting a new studio initiative in Melbourne that has an exciting concept: a subscription system to access rare electronic musical instruments.
Something betwixt a “synth gym” and a “synth library”, MESS will allow people to come to a dedicated workspace in North Melbourne where they can independently access an incredible collection of hard-to-find and often-too-expensive-to-ever-own electronic musical instruments in order to experiment, learn and record.
Find out more here, consider becoming a member here, and maybe I’ll see you down there. I’m looking forward to spending some time on some of these instruments crafting sounds for new tracks I’m working on.

Music for the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival
Kris from The Basics has recorded a nifty synthy piece for the Human Rights Arts & Film Festival. I really like the unexpected drum breaks and odd time section against the pulsating bass synth that propels this! Listen here.
Blessings blossoms,
