Feral Media 10 year anniversary

The wonderful Feral Media recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary and to mark the occasion they have released a bumper compilation featuring a stellar line-up of Australian talent.

We contributed a brand new track called Stockholm as well as a remix of our good friend Gentleforce's track Lift Up Your Weary Head.

This incredible compilation is now available digitally and also as a limited edition Playbutton.
Head to the Feral bandcamp site to hear what it's all about and check out our contributions below.

Congrats to Feral Media on achieving this wonderful milestone. Here's to another 10 years!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

To celebrate their 10 year anniversary Feral Media are releasing a bumper compilation featuring a killer line-up of artists who have been associated with the label over the years.

Artists included on the release are AFXJIM, Alpen, Anonymeye, Mark Barrage, Because of Ghosts, Broken Chip, Comatone, Faux Pas, Gentleforce, Haunts, ii, Pimmon, Raven, School of Two, Scissor Lock, Seaworthy, Brad Stafford (The Longest Day), Thomas William, 0point1 and of course us!

We have submitted a brand new track for the compilation entitled 'Stockholm' and we are really happy with the results.

The compilation will be released digitally and as a limited edition Playbutton, which is an MP3 player that doubles as a wearable badge. The artwork for the release was created by the super talented SOPP Collective who have been responsible for the artwork on many of the Feral releases, including the cover for our album Red Spring.

To assist with the release Feral have launched a Pozible crowd-funding campaign (basically pre-ordering) which we urge you all to support. There are some great rewards on offer in addition to the compilation itself so head on over and see what it's all about.

To whet your appetite you can watch the campaign video below which features snippets of a few tracks from the compilation and you can also hear the first full preview from the album here.

Choking Ibis single

We have just released the Choking Ibis single which is the third and final single from our album Softly Harboured.

In addition to a radio edit of the title track, the single also features some stunning remixes from friends and label mates Option Command, Alpen and Comatone.
The remixes are stylistically diverse and push the track into new musical realms.

Option Command adds his trademark production to create an eerie beat-driven post-rock hybrid, whilst Alpen adds military style percussion and synth bass, bringing out a funkier side certainly not present in the original. To cap it off IDM maestro Comatone takes what is already an epic track and pushes it up a notch, beginning as a haunting post-classical ballad and ending as an IDM glitch freak-out.

If that wasn't enough, the lovely Tessa C. Stevens of Sydney-based music website Pyramid Scheme has directed a film clip for the Option Command remix which you can view on Vimeo here

We are extremely thankful to all the artists involved and are absolutely stoked with the results.

The single marks the end of a chapter for Underlapper as we begin work on new material which will hopefully surface sometime next year. But for now you can listen to the single below or download it for free from the Feral Media bandcamp page here

Underlapper remix Telafonica

Last year the wonderful Sydney outfit Telafonica began the arduous task of having each track from their amazing album Sleeping With The Fisherman remixed by various artists and then subsequently releasing each tracks remixes as a separate EP on a monthly basis.
The remix EPs have been as varied as the artists involved and the results are nothing short of breathtaking.

We were kindly asked to take part in the project and chose the skewed pop number To Me to remix.
You can listen/download our contribution below or head over to the Telafonica bandcamp site where you can check out all of the remix EPs so far.
In particular our good friend Peter Hollo aka Raven's all Cello reworking of the track There's Something About Your Face.
