The Strain of Origin

Underlapper were recently involved in a collaboration between Sydney label Feral Media and Brisbane label loFly. The idea was to get a bunch of artists from each label and get them to remix each other and the results are amazing! Furthermore the release is available as a free download from the Feral Media bandcamp site:

We contributed a remix of Brisbane artist Aheadphonehome's track 'The Rattle' (which you can check out below) and our track 'Drinking Dust' got the remix treatment by Brisbane group Re:enactment.

So head over and grab yourself some free music from some exciting Australian talent!

Parades Remix

Here is a recent remix we did for Sydney band Parades. The original track is called Hunters and is taken from their debut album Foreign Tapes. The remix is available as a B-side to their single Past Lives on itunes.
I strongly recommend checking this album out, it is fantastic!

Now that I've figured out how to work Soundcloud I will post something from Softly Harboured soon.....

This is a test

We have just received the test pressing and we're super excited that our first foray into vinyl is becoming a reality!
All going well we should have the finished product very soon and if I can figure out how to upload an MP3 player onto this blog I will post one of the new tracks.

Here's hoping

More progress....

As with the previous post these images show the final designs from a rough sketch posted a while back. These images are the front (top) and back covers (bottom).
The 5 designs are almost complete now and will go to print in the next week or so.
The album itself is about to be mastered and will go off to be pressed around the same time. Not long now!


In an earlier post there was a storyboard from one of the designers.
These images show the finished design with and without the scratch off ink layer.

Here we go again!

Here is the fourth installment of the vinyl art process.
This cover is complete except for the tracklisting, which will be finalised soon.
This design invites the owner to scratch off various parts of the artwork and add their own info.

Vinyl Artwork

The following posts will contain images which depict some of the designers artworks and ideas so far.....
Basically we got together and decided that all of the designers would create an artwork based on a unified concept. Each artwork would contain a single colour image which would be screen printed onto a cardboard stock. An additional layer of scratch-off ink would then be applied, which when scratched off would reveal the complete original image.
As you can imagine the options are endless and each artist has been hard at work creating their own individual take on this quite clever idea.
So anyhoo, here is a taste of what's to come......Enjoy!
