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

With band members heralding from Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Dick Diver, Trial Kennedy, Teen Archer and Twerps, Boomgates perfectly encapsulate the spirit of Melbourne’s music scene.

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
