House Arrest by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti





MIST001 HOUSE ARREST by
ARIEL PINK’S HAUNTED GRAFFITI

Ariel Pink is the perfect antidote to the iPod. Instead of a playlist fashioned for an audience of one, Pink’s music recreates the scene of a child falling in love with pop for the first time: ear cupped to an imperfectly-tuned transistor, plugged into an otherworldly beyond. This Los Angeles recluse is driven by contradictory impulses that mesh to make sublime noise-pop. The formalist’s love of songcraft and period stylisation (one minute he’s channelling Hall and Oates, the next Blue Oyster Cult) collides with a psychedelic urge to shatter form with kaleidoscopic chaos.

Down There by Avey Tare





MIST042 DOWN THERE
by AVEY TARE

Down There is the incredible new solo album from Animal Collective member Dave Portner a/k/a Avey Tare. His first official solo full length carries you through a murky world of sound, an alien death world of soul grooves that is both honest and otherworldly. Wait for sundown and turn it up loud. Take a ride on this haunted boat and let yourself be guided through deep sloshy rhythms, waterlogged bass, and moonlit breaks in the canopy that reveal a crisp crystalline pop buzz.

Bachelorette by Bachelorette

MIST045 BACHELORETTE
by BACHELORETTE
Recorded around the world and mixed with Nicholas Vernhes at Rare Book Room (Animal Collective, Baby Dee, Dirty Projectors, et cetera) in Brooklyn, the tracks of Bachelorette are built on buzzing synth grooves, folky guitar strums, and the occasional snap of drums and percussion ‒ aided and abetted by a whimsical, searching sense of instrumental color. We are guided through the darkness of infinite space by Bachelorette’s luminescent lead vocal. Sing along!

Isolation Loops by Bachelorette


MIST011 ISOLATION LOOPS
by BACHELORETTE

Bachelorette – New Zealand’s Annabel Alpers – seems like the private type. Her pop songs are wrapped up snug in a quilt of digital and analogue patches. They’re obviously all hers, hand woven through and through. On her debut, lyrically, Alpers tends towards the everyday and the simple to charming effects. You get the impression that even a cup of tea for her has the inbuilt soundtrack of Isolation Loops’ space odysseys and whimsical musings. It’s a well-paced and fascinated dawdle through quaint and quiet sounds, filled with bright Casio keyboards gazing out at a carpet of glow-in-the-dark stars.

It’s playful for the most part, but the kitschy keyboard veneer gives way to a poignant sense of storytelling. The sparse ‘And The Earth Knew Absence’ falls after the drum machine-driven ‘Intergalactic Solitude’, beginning with the hushed, ‘I lost my friend today/I can feel his presence all around’. For all the times where Alpers’ voice is buoyant atop her vast palette of sound, there are others where it’s isolated, left floating alone, unguided. This is an insular record, curious; just her voice and ideas on their own, wealthy with inspiration and easy to be swept up by. You glance out the window, the world goes by – it seems faster than usual.

The Bats “December Ice” b/w Boomgates “Widow Maker” – limited edition 7″ vinyl single




MIST064 THE BATS / BOOMGATES 7″ VINYL

 

December Ice by The Bats b/w Widow Maker by Boomgates, a split 7″ vinyl release between Mistletone + Bedroom Suck to celebrate Melbourne Music Week 2013.

Previously unreleased, December Ice was one of the tracks that didn’t make it on to The Bats’ most recent album Free All The Monsters (Flying Nun/Mistletone, 2011). It was taken from the album recording sessions at Seacliff Asylum — a 19th century psychiatric hospital in the small village of Seacliff, located to the north of Dunedin in the Otago region of New Zealand’s South Island) — & later mixed by NZ engineer Dale Cotton (High Dependency Unit, Dimmer). As Paul Kean of The Bats remarks: “We ran out of time to do much more with this than capture it as a live studio recording. I didn’t know what I was going to play on bass when we started out so it’s virtually just me grooving along to the song as it evolved. December Ice is a bit different to your average Bats song. There are also late night “space” jams in existence from the Seacliff session, that are way more left of centre, and may never be heard by anyone other than the band. December Ice evokes a northern hemisphere feeling. Skidding out on December ice, and taking me away from all my worries.”

There’s no questioning the pedigree of Boomgates. With band members heralding from Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Dick Diver, Trial Kennedy, Teen Archer and Twerps, this is a band who perfectly encapsulates the spirit of Melbourne’s music scene – in all its laconic excellence.

MIST052: FREE ALL THE MONSTERS CD by THE BATS

Recorded at Seacliff, just outside of Dunedin, New Zealand, and masterfully produced by Dale Cotton, Free All The Monsters is fittingly filled with a manic and sophisticated pop charm. This album is one of The Bats’ strongest yet, with guitars swirling between powerful and bittersweet, backed by delicate vocals, swerving bass and stomping drums right through.

The Guilty Office CD by The Bats




MIST033 THE GUILTY OFFICE CD by THE BATS

For The Guilty Office - their seventh studio album and their Mistletone debut – The Bats continued to refine and develop their own idiosyncratic path, whilst also adding fresh sparkle and new ideas. Strings and additional instruments come to the fore, such as on the first single Castle Lights, and Robert Scott’s songwriting has become particularly strong on tracks such as Countersign and Crimson Enemy. It could have been the pentagonal room they recorded in at Christchurch music doyen John Kelcher’s studio, or the proximity to Christchurch’s beautiful Heathcote River, but either way, the band have come up with an album that shines among their best.“One of the purest distillations ever of The Bats’ strengths… show(ing) off the poppy propulsion and happy-sad core that made The Bats one of the defining bands of the Flying Nun catalogue… the band’s revival appears complete.” – INPRESS

Ends Run Together by Robert Scott (The Clean/The Bats/Magick Heads)




MIST039 ENDS RUN TOGETHER
by ROBERT SCOTT

13 engaging songs as likely to appeal to any fan of great alternative pop as much as to those already familiar with The Bats and The Clean (and the Magick Heads for that matter).The biggest treats on this album, apart from the consistent quality of Robert’s song-writing, jam-packed full of pop hooks, are the varied moods and intelligent arrangements confidently presented here. Ends Run Together features everything from layered, squalling guitar rock (On the Lake, Too Early and The Rising Tide), dreamy pastoral folk with washes of subtle electronica (Carmilla, Days Run Together, Some Other Time and Messages), driving krautrock-ish pop (The Rising Tide, The Moon Upstairs and Daylight), right through to the gloriously lush orchestral epic centre-piece Born in a Tent.In a world of ambitious pretenders, the ever humble, obliging and low-key Robert Scott is the real deal and Ends Run Together is as fine a tribute to his colossal talents as you could want.MAIL ORDER: $15.00 + FREE POSTAGE WORLDWIDE

Spiderman of the Rings by Dan Deacon





MIST009 SPIDERMAN OF THE RINGS by DAN DEACON
Tapping directly into the great lineage of batshit bubblegum pop, Baltimore art kid Dan Deacon’s Spiderman of the Rings connects at various points with Kasenetz and Katz, Sam the Sham, happy hardcore and gabba techno, “Surfin’ Bird”, the twinkly melodies of an infant’s mobile (the unexpectedly gorgeous “Big Milk”), the Ramones, Koji Kondo (composer-in-residence for the Nintendo Entertainment System), Max Martin, and Daft Punk. Deacon is a core member of Baltimore’s Wham City crew– a Baltimore loft/show space and arts collective– and the 12-minute “Wham City” is this album’s centerpiece. In this tribute to his friends and his former home, you can hear hints of all sorts of hypnotic beats, from Neu!’s motorik percussion and Kraftwerk’s synthesizers to Steve Reich’s mallets and Terry Riley’s keyboards. But as a sing-along– or chant-along in this case, one of the catchiest of the year– it also hints at a deep love of old “Sesame Street” records and a full collection of “Muppet Show” DVDs. Even when Deacon goes epic– and pays tribute to the hardcore experimental composers he studied in college– he can’t resist the urge to play up to your inner child.

All Hell CD by Daughn Gibson




MIST058 ALL HELL by
DAUGHN GIBSON

 

“Daughn Gibson has a thing for old cowboy music– the kind that you find on musty, old shellac vinyl in thrift shops. He largely built his solo debut, All Hell, out of those records’ bits and parts: imagine James Blake in a ten-gallon cowboy hat, or J Dilla working out a serious Glenn Miller jones, and you might be floating somewhere near the stylized little Americana snow-globe that Gibson is gently shaking on All Hell. “Tiffany Lou” is one of the album’s strongest tracks, a song that’s made up of a pitched-down, highly medicated-sounding vocal loop, harmonizing tiredly with itself. Over this unsettling backdrop, Daughn spins a song about the exact kind of no-hope characters these songs are supposed to be about, telling an compelling and inscrutable little tale even as his words are slurred to near-unintelligibility.” - PITCHFORK BEST NEW MUSIC

The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele by Dent May & His Magnificent Ukulele





MIST026 THE GOOD FEELING MUSIC OF DENT MAY

Dent May was discovered by Animal Collective when they were recording their new record in Dent’s home of Oxford, Mississippi. Dent’s unique vocal style, part crooner, part falsetto, and 101 percent showman reflects the influences of some of his favorite singers (Prince, Serge Gainsbourg, and Lee Hazlewood to name a few). His love of various song styles results in a unique combination of ukulele, drums, pedal steel, violin, horns and bass. One second his songs hint at Brazilian Tropicalia, the next a 1950s barbershop quartet or an early 20th century country swing.

“May’s croon could almost be a young Elvis Costello, and his music fits between sun-faded bossa nova and faded country-swing… a lovely selection of nerdy, ukulele-led tunes” – MUSIC AUSTRALIA GUIDE

I’m A Peach b/w Feathers by Early Woman – debut 7″ vinyl single




I’M A PEACH b/w FEATHERS by EARLY WOMAN – 7″ vinyl

 

I’m A Peach b/w Feathers is the debut 7″ single by Melbourne quartet Early Woman.

With three part harmonies and cello by Jessica Venables (Jessica Says), Feathers is dreamy and tender; part California folk-rock, part Spector. It’s a dreamy drive-in makeout anthem recalling the loneliest echoes of sixties teen music.

I’m A Peach is the musical antithesis of its B-side; a supplication, alternating between hurt and hope, throbbing with raw rage and desperation, whilst yearning for salvation.

  • I’m A Peach is dreamy — as is its B-side, a raw yet classically pop tune called Feathers. While the former is a pleading, foot-stomping and swaying rock song, the latter is a Phil Spector-esque tender track with a Californian glam heart. They’re each other’s anti-thesis but they’re both really good. – OYSTER MAGAZINE

So Gone by Evangelicals





MIST002 SO GONE
by EVANGELICALS
Evangelicals hail from Oklahoma, birthplace of the Flaming Lips; maybe it’s one of the most fun places in the world to make music, because there is a wide-eyed glee in the music of both bands. And a similar disregard for convention. On So Gone, anything goes, often simultaneously, but without sounding crude or messy; every gatecrashing squall, whirr, madman holler and guitar stutter somehow makes itself right at home alongside grimy electronic signals, watery vibraphone, gorgeous harmonies, cheeky banjo and the naive, high vocal of singer-guitarist Josh Jones. Standouts include the careening, layered Another Day (and Yoor Still Knocked Out), the deliriously joyous Here Comes Trouble, and the breezy, carefree Diving. Maybe the album title refers to how you’ll feel after hearing So Gone. I am.   – THE AGE (four stars)

The Evening Descends by Evangelicals





The Evening Descends… and worlds collide. First you hear the prodigious musical skill: the deft guitar work, the clever pop sensibility, the wild arrangements. But then on other end of the spectrum there is the innocent and youthful charm of a quartet of lost boys who seem to have no business making music with such maturity and sophistication. Taken together, you have Evangelicals, a wholly demented ensemble from Norman, Oklahoma. Dabbling in glam, slipping in a little funk and soul, drinking the psychedelic Kool-aid, blasting the synths, cranking up the guitars, and wrapping it all up with a dose of pop smarts; Evangelicals deliver tales of religion and revivalism, plus insanity, drugs, black-outs, zombies, good and evil, car crashes, love, and a mental institution called Bellawood.

Francis Plagne by Francis Plagne





MIST010 FRANCIS PLAGNE by FRANCIS PLAGNE

Creating a parallel pop universe, Francis Plagne sounds as close to Pet Sounds era Beach Boys as it does a future classic or an exercise in folk collage. Through it Plagne builds a new world order, picking up portions of his musical ideas and piecing them together with a complex thought process and even more convoluted progression. It’s a curious marriage, as pop sounds are kept while pop constructs avoided, leaving in their stead the uncomfortable dismissal of linearity. The self-important pop purveyor would call it musical naïveté, but Plagne’s pop-compositions suggest something else – on Francis Plagne he demonstrates a continually evolving musical maturity where the conceptual and accessible aren’t mutually exclusive.

MIST021 HIGH PLACES
by High Places

High Places’ self-titled debut was recorded by Rob and Mary in their apartment in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene neighborhood in 2008. They employed a wide variety of instruments to make this album ranging from the more traditional: 12 string guitar, banjo, shakers and rattles, bass, bells and Kalimba, to the inventive: plastic bags, mixing bowls, wood blocks and other common household objects. The album has a contemplative and organic lyrical tone emphasized by the themes of goodness manifested in nature, hardship and wonder as necessities to human existence and growth.

“Part of a second wave of freak folkers emerging from the American underground… (High Places) arrive at a nutty playfulness that isn’t scared to incorporate electronics alongside folk instrumentation, or to infuse shamanistic hoedowns with potent lines of melody.”

MIST066LP PSYCHIC 9-5 CLUB by HTRK: VINYL LP w/- free download

Of all the themes that run through Psychic 9-5 Club, love is the most central. The word is laced throughout the album in lyrics and titles — love as a distraction, loving yourself, loving others. Jonnine Standish’s lyrics explore the complexities of sexuality and the body’s reaction to personal loss, though there’s room for wry humour — a constant through much of the best experimental Australian music of the past few decades. Standish explores her vocal range fully — her husky spoken-word drawl remains, but we also hear her laugh and sing. Equally, Yang’s exploratory production techniques — particularly his well-documented love of dub — are given room to shine. They dip headlong into some of the things that make humans tick — love, loss and desire — with the kind of integrity that has marked the band out from day one. Psychic 9-5 Club is truly an album for the body and for the soul.

Psychic 9-5 Club is another huge step forward for Standish and Nigel Yang, following Work (work, work) and 2009’s Rowland S Howard-produced Marry Me Tonight. It gets under your skin in much the same way those other albums do, but there’s more brooding depth to the duo’s use of gaping empty space and unreliable rhythmic pulses. Working with Excepter’s Nathan Corbin in New Mexico before tinkering further in Sydney and New York, Standish and Yang have nurtured an immersive microcosm of an album where the most low-key wobbles and turns of phrase can knock us flat” – MESS + NOISE

    The Magic Place by Julianna Barwick

    MIST048 THE MAGIC PLACE
    by JULIANNA BARWICK
    Singing in church choirs while growing up in rural Louisiana, Julianna Barwick loved how it felt to be in the middle of the chorus: in harmonious unity, swallowed up by sound. Her music attempts to recreate that sensation solo by using a loop station — an effects unit that layers sounds infinitely — to become a one-woman choir. Her ambient music is peer to fellow loopers such as Animal Collective bro Panda Bear and somnambulist droner Grouper but it’s very much its own thing. Barwick constructs opaque audio atmospheres from swarms of heavenly harmonies and cloudy drones, making music equal parts canonical and environmental. After two records testing these waters (2007’s Sanguine and 2009’s Florine), Barwick is the master of her idiosyncratic domain on The Magic Place. Named after a childhood birch, in the branches of which she would retreat into fantasy. The LP taps into imagination and escape, its rapturous suite of tone-songs — with apt names such as Envelop and Cloak — suggest cinema, the subconscious, transcendence, the firmament, heaven and any other realm of mystery and mysticism. – THE AGE (4.5 stars)

    Black Brown Green Grey White is the stunning new album by Kes Band’s latest incarnation as a trio featuring Kes (Karl Scullin), Lehmann B Smith and Julian Patterson. Recorded by Nao Anzai, Black Brown Green Grey White is a yin-yang dichotomy, juxtaposing contemplative, melodic beauty and inward-gazing ballads with jerky dischord, banshee yells and whirlwind anti-rock riffs.

    by KES BAND

    Kes Band II is an all-instrumental album which reveals some resonant, exploratory dimensions of Melbourne’s much acclaimed Kes Band. Voiceless lyricism and a flair for the transcendental, richly beautiful string arrangements and delicate playing reverberate with almost visual joy and sorrow. Kes Band II is at once an intriguing mood piece of strangely moving atmospheric music that sweeps through and around the listener; it is also a dense slice of rewarding cerebral music, full of fertile ideas which reveal and fulfill themselves over time.

    “Wordlessly stunning. Although the spectre of the Dirty Three hangs over the album (Biddy Connor’s violin is more elegant than ferocious), there is so much beauty on display, so much space and atmosphere, so much complexity and grace, that it is truly a record in its own class” – THE SUNDAY AGE **** four stars

    MIST017 KES BAND
    by KES BAND

    The extraordinary Kes Band album was recorded by James Cecil of Architecture in Helsinki fame in his Super Melody World studio. Kes Band is a stupendous leap forward from “The Grey Goose Wing”, with the same adventurous spirit but with a more concise and accessible pop sensibility. Deluxe digipak format.

    “Kes Band is the work of a deeply idiosyncratic songwriter who is nonetheless maturing rapidly. There are moments of daft pleasure succeeded by passages of moving instrumentation. The album has a framework but it’s one that requires repeated listens to define and comprehend. Once you do, its appeal becomes tangible.” - SYDNEY MORNING HERALD feature album

    Lawrence Arabia is the pseudonym of James Milne, born 1981 in Christchurch, NZ, former member of the Brunettes, the Ruby Suns and one time touring member of Okkervil River. Lawrence Arabia’s second album Chant Darling is a modern pop masterpiece: the sugar hits of harmony, sweet melody and lush orchestration will set you reeling as the witty and sometimes forlorn tales of indolence, longing and romantic misadventure hit home where it hurts.


    “This New Zealand songwriter has some serious pop chops… Chant Darling is so well put-together, it just works.”- mX review (four stars)

    Dream Island Laughing Language by Lucky Dragons





    MIST019 DREAM ISLAND LAUGHING
    LANGUAGE by LUCKY DRAGONS

    Lucky Dragons is the brainchild of Los Angeles savant Luke Fischbeck, together with Sarah Rara and other collaborators. Dream Island Laughing Language, the 19th release by Lucky Dragons details the continuing pursuit of a humble and ecstatic, drippy and explosive, smoldering and upset music.

    Dream Island Laughing Language is shudders of sound and melody and rhythm; it is splinters of light through trees. It is a chest full of fresh air and a head full of computer parts; it is clouds and planes and birds in the same sky. It is the 19th release from hyper-prolific young Los Angelite Luke Fischbeck (aka Lucky Dragons) and it is as wonderfully surreal and joyous as its title portends.”

    Melbourne’s cracked pop fuzzbox MARK BARRAGE makes a nervy sound tonic. Straddling the twin influences of electronic music and underground rock, Delays is a Morphean album in the spirit of Australia’s Severed Heads, the classic Komische groups and hard-art overseas labels Human Ear Music and Sacred Bones.

    “Scything ancient synth and electronic sounds squeeze into heavily warped, nimbly progressive rhythmic structures; textural abrasions melt into shimmering, minor key pop melodies… Delays is raw, bedroom-produced brilliance.” - MUSIC AUSTRALIA GUIDE (four stars)

    Okay, let’s get this out of the way: Marnie Stern can shred. She’s a better guitar player than you, or me, or probably 99% of the people who have ever looked at a guitar. A self-taught guitar virtuoso, vocalist and songwriter from New York City, Marnie combines towers of sound with high-school pep-rally vocals. Signed to the iconic riot-grrrl label Kill Rock Stars, Marnie has become the darling of the American underground. This Is It… is a pop record for an alternate dimension, where hooks and choruses are sent careening through a cracked kaleidoscope.

    MIST063 THE LOVING GAZE LP by MONTERO

     

    Fall in love with the debut album by Montero, The Loving Gaze, on vinyl with a download code to boot!


    An audacious Australian supergroup based around the creatively adept output of Ben Montero. ‘The Loving Gaze’ takes you on a dreamy, psychedelic trip from start to finish. It’s a fearless debut and one of the best we’ve heard in a long time. The albums first track “Adriana” instantly grabs your attention, softly kicking off with trumpets, flutes, piano, synthesizers, echo heavy vocals, and blissed out harmonies that end with an affirmative mantra of “I’ll take good care of you, you’ll never be alone”. From the beginning and throughout the album there is a spiritual vibe at the core of the songs, a sense of positivity and hope, which is quite powerful once you let yourself into the flow of the record. Montero undeniably tap into Mercury Rev’s ghostly beauty on “BC”, and there is a reverberation of their influence in most of the tracks, however less eerie. Elsewhere lyrically there are traces of R Stevie Moore tackling a bold 70’s soft-rock opus, to great effect. There are also a few psychedelic pop numbers “Dead Heads Come To Dinner”, “Glam Campbell” and a little freak out “Taste The Carbonation” that remind us of a Neil Michael Hagerty if he kept his wild propulsive jazz prog on a more joyful, spectral path. The great thing is, that Montero sound timeless, and they are confidently searching through the boundaries of a bygone era of music, and keeping it alive and relative to in today’s world. The album moves at steady pace, it’s a smooth and seductive affair, full of lush harmonies, swishing synths, and ‘those were the days’ feelgood factor. Recommended for fans of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s ‘Before Today’, Gayngs ‘Relayted’, Destroyer’s ‘Kaputt’ and Foxygen’s ‘We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic'”EL RANCHO

    Mumbai/Rainman 7″ single by Montero




    MIST050 MUMBAI/RAINMAN
    7″ VINYL by MONTERO

    Mumbai b/w Rainman is the debut 7″ release by new Melbourne soft-rock/slow-wave supergroop Montero.The two jams on the debut Montero 7″ single are shaping up to be the pop/schmaltz/glam/prog/post-mellow/wave-wave/man-core anthems for tomorrow. Mumbai is best described as post economic meltdown relaxation pop; its lilting cadences evoke a flood of associations — self help rock, Wall Street relaxation tape sounds, stress ball gazing, new age ocean rock, positive thoughts manuals and the Indian Ocean. Rainman is the big daddy of the hitherto-unknown genre of custody battle space rock, or should we call it camp psychedelic divorcecore? Either way, its transportive synths, epic MOR moves and face melting guitar solo will dissolve all inhibitions. 7″ VINYL SINGLE $15.00 + FREE POSTAGE WITHIN AUSTRALIA.

    Ends Run Together by Robert Scott (The Clean/The Bats/Magick Heads)




    MIST039 ENDS RUN TOGETHER
    by ROBERT SCOTT

    13 engaging songs as likely to appeal to any fan of great alternative pop as much as to those already familiar with The Bats and The Clean (and the Magick Heads for that matter).The biggest treats on this album, apart from the consistent quality of Robert’s song-writing, jam-packed full of pop hooks, are the varied moods and intelligent arrangements confidently presented here. Ends Run Together features everything from layered, squalling guitar rock (On the Lake, Too Early and The Rising Tide), dreamy pastoral folk with washes of subtle electronica (Carmilla, Days Run Together, Some Other Time and Messages), driving krautrock-ish pop (The Rising Tide, The Moon Upstairs and Daylight), right through to the gloriously lush orchestral epic centre-piece Born in a Tent.In a world of ambitious pretenders, the ever humble, obliging and low-key Robert Scott is the real deal and Ends Run Together is as fine a tribute to his colossal talents as you could want.

    The Night’s Deeds Are Vapour by Ross McLennan




    MIST060 THE NIGHT’S DEEDS ARE VAPOUR by ROSS MCLENNAN

    • Aptly described as a “chamber rock auteur”, Ross McLennan has earned the highest accolades for his solo career since disbanding Snout, one of a few Australian indie pop bands from the 1990s who are remembered both for their popularity and their creative depth. A revered songwriter, Ross creates intriguing daydream sequences in his music whilst engaging deeply with the most vexed and heartbreaking issues of our time. Five years in the making, The Night’s Deeds Are Vapour is sublime.

      “By name and mercurial nature,
      The Night’s Deeds are Vapour is about the thrilling transience of impulses and ideas, from eerie woodwind that slides around tonal certainty to lyrics seemingly on their own journey of discovery moment by moment”THE AGE
      “Bubbles over with the Snout legend’s droll delivery, biting lyrics and snuggly, quirky, softly embellished psych-pop… The album ranges from the rock ‘n’ roll homage ‘Get This!’ and the orchestration-flooded lead single ‘Clarity’ to the world-weary yet puckish yarn ‘Sunkissed’ and the whisper-from-the-next-pillow finale ‘Travel Arrangements’ – all of it imbued with the man’s sleepy wisdom.” – MESS + NOISE

This stunning record charts Ross’s dizzying artistic progress following his post-Snout solo debut Hits From The Brittle Building. Written and recorded entirely in his home studio in the quietude of an inner-north Melbourne suburb, Sympathy for the New World is an accomplished production. A dozen finely crafted songs open up labyrinthine worlds of meaning, association and possibilities with every listen.“Ross McLennan excels with this stream of musical consciousness, forging a new strain of languid psychedelia from off-kilter strings and spidery guitars, all spilling harmonic colours outside the lines” – THE AGE

    Tammy Haider and Eliza Hiscox started royalchord in 2001, playing dusty alt-country with a royalchord crew that at one point swelled up to 8 members. Tammy and Eliza now play primarily as a duo, replacing guitars with keyboards and band members with chopped drum breaks and sequenced bass lines. Their new record The Good Fight sees them combine electronics with their neurotic and melancholic sensibility, delivering songs that range from summer pop to funereal folk.

    “With melodies that melt away like a stick of butter in the hot summer sun, royalchord have cornered the market with their ambient country stylings that are akin to crossing French synth-heavy dream pop stars Air with someone like Dawn Landes or Feist” – RHYTHMS MAGAZINE

    MIST043 UNDERNEATH THE PINE by TORO Y MOI

    Underneath the Pine sees Toro Y Moi following the same creative urges to completely different ends. Having spent the year listening to film composers like Ennio Morricone and François de Roubaix, Bundick returned to his home in Columbia, the birthplace of many Toro tracks of yore, to bring his new ideas to fruition. The result of these sessions is an album evocative of R. Stevie Moore’s homespun ruminations, David Axelrod’s sonic scope, Steve Reich-ian piano phrasing, and the pervasive funk of his first record. Underneath the Pine announces a new phase for an artist whose talent defies classification.

    by VIVIAN GIRLS

    Share the Joy finds the Vivian Girls threesome — guitarist/vocalist Cassie Ramone, bassist/vocalist Kickball Katy and new drummer Fiona Campbell — continuing to evolve and expand, sharpening and refining their transcendent mix of garage thrash, girl-group warmth and infectious pop hooksmanship.

    In a recent Spin Magazine feature, Vivian Girls were named one of 8 artists who most embody the Phil Spector “Wall of Sound” approach to songwriting and production. Other artists in the list of 8 include The Beach Boys, The Ramones, and The Jesus and Mary Chain. The article reads: “Of all the indie upstarts to miniaturize the Spector aesthetic in recent years–from the Raveonettes to Girls to Dum Dum Girls to Best Coast–these Brooklyn babes might come closest to earning it.”

    MIST051 SKETCHES 12″ by WINTERCOATS

    “Melbourne-based ambient, post-rocker Wintercoats (aka James Wallace) makes intensely physical music. Not in the sense that you can dance to it (dancing to it is pretty much impossible unless you’re doing a Kate Bush-style interpretive dance). It’s physical in the sense that if you clamp on some decent headphones and listen to his new EP Sketches with your eyes closed you feel as if you’re standing on a cliff with the wind in your face thinking profound thoughts about love (while wearing a fantastic winter coat of course).” - THE THOUSANDS
