Jane Weaver - Modern Kosmology (+ LIMITED BONUS 'THE ARCHITECT' CD)
Modern Kosmology sees Jane Weaver's melodic-protagonist channeling new depths of creative cosmic energy within. After the huge critical acclaim of 2012's “Fallen By Watchbird”, followed by 2015's exploratory "Silver Globe" LP winning her unanimous "record of the year accolades" and hefty measures of radio play-listing Jane Weaver's conceptual trajectory has sent her neo-kosmische penchants to the point of no-return. Jane Weaver's unwaning yearning for psychoactive pop energy has just reached a new level of magnetism. As snowclones go, Modern Kosmology is the new Silver. Another Spectrum to add to the tension.

Jane Weaver - Silver Globe
Like all good parables Jane Weaver’s sixth solo album, a concept album called ‘The Silver Globe’, is as multifaceted as it is beguiling. Part coming of age / part cautionary tale and part romantic paeon, this twelve track synth ridden post-apocalyptic prog pop opus is based on tightly embroidered, non-linear recurring themes and inspired by esoteric stories, cosmic imagery and refiltered past experiences.

Jane Weaver - The Architect EP
The Architect’ sees Jane Weaver evolving with an aero-lite melodicism, the drum heavy vivacious pop song evokes vivid images of early Modernist art, Archigram blue-prints with a rigid back-bone of Eames worthy construction. Directly inspired by Hilma af Klint’s séances, spiritualism and the science of anthroposophy that formed the artist’s abstract paintings, Weaver finds herself in a transformative state channelling her inner spirituality, it’s place within her music and the cosmos. Shifting perspectives with her meditative vocal explorations and oneiric flow on ‘Code’. Eight-minute psych-pop opus ‘Element’ is richly melodic replete with pulsating analogue synths, unrelenting motorik rhythms and incessant beats. The perfect antidote to those longing for more music since the release of the critically acclaimed ‘Modern Kosmology’, the release features title track alongside unreleased new tracks and a special remix by Finders Keepers’ Andy Votel.

Wooden Wand - Blood Oaths Of The New Blues
A radical departure from the country rock stylings of 'Briarwood', 'Blood Oaths' shows a markedly more reflective and darker side to Wooden Wand, with more experimental arrangements to match.

Blank Realm - Illegals In Heaven
Hook-laden throughout, Blank Realm unleash their wild yet tender new album ‘Illegals In Heaven’ which offers up freaked out reflections on life, love and circumstance. As knowing as the Chills or the Pretenders, loner ballads are as gnarled and world weary as Dylan in a cacophony as bruised as Royal Trux yet with the playfulness of Half Japanese. Recorded and produced with Lawrence English (head of the Room40 label) on a late night at The Plutonium studio in Brisbane, the album sees them on their first foray into a recording studio. While it wasn’t exactly Abbey Road, it truly captures the chaos and majesty of the band’s formidable live shows.

Jumbo's Adam Gillison says "Brisbane's Blank Realm set a new standard on basement rock'n'roll. Unstoppable pop wrapped in layers of distortion, for fans of Velvet Underground, Rolling Stones, Royal Trux or the Clean. Great record."

Josephine Foster - Blood Rushing
Josephine Foster continues her prolific run with this 'rock-ballet chanté', recorded with the collaboration of a group of musicians including her partner Spanish guitarist Victor Herrero, and violinist Heather Trost (A Hawk and a Hacksaw). Her free-ranging vocals - a mix of operatic and folk in style - work over a set of songs that veer between raw, warm and easy-going textures. A highly individual album that shows Foster's questing spirit is as strong as ever.

One of the most adept guitarists of our time, Lipstate returns with her signature breathtaking cinematic, experimental soundscapes.

Pere Ubu reissue their second album ‘Dub Housing’ on Fire Records. Originally released in 1978, the same year as their debut ‘The Modern Dance’, Pere Ubu continue to tear up the rule book, chew it up and spit it out with glorious splendour. Mesmerising critics, fans and musicians along the way, their follow up has been repeatedly regarded as one of their best and captures Pere Ubu in one of their earliest incarnations. ‘Dub Housing’s assaultive noises and melodic rock still annihilates the senses setting Pere Ubu apart from their peers with vision and an inimitable ability to push boundaries.

Jumbo's Adam Gillison says "Sarah Lipstate's guitar-playing has a level of distinctiveness that is rare - Manuel Gottsching and Robin Guthrie achieve this, and Lipstate does it too on these instrumental tracks. With repetition as a foundation, what really sets these tracks off is the layering of sounds, shimmering at times - forceful and dramatic at others. Psychedelic, vivid and adventurous music - recommended."

Jackie-O Motherfucker - Vol. 1 Fig. 5 And Liberation (Special Edition)
Album now at midprice!! A Special Edition Jackie O Motherfucker release of both Liberation and Fig.5 re-issues together in packaging especially designed by Alex Hornsby. Jackie-O Motherfucker's unprecedented Fig. 5, the group's first CD release, presents a dim and unsettling archaeology of American music. Somehow constructed bereft of any postmodern irony, Fig. 5 transforms a commanding grasp on the celebrated tributaries of American music-- jazz, Appalachian folk, soul, African-American spirituals, West coast surf-rock, Protestant hymns, Louisville post-rock, bluegrass, electronic noise-- into an autochthonous gospel. Liberation (October 2001) showcases the group's most experimental free-form side. The 12 musicians involved in these recordings stomp over any distinctions between rock, jazz, folk, or any other musical idiom for that matter. They jam. When a structure arises, either spontaneously or not, the general feel of the music tends to get closer to psychedelic rock and post-rock, something like a freer Godspeed You Black Emperor! or Mushroom, or a more drug-induced Trummerflora Collective...

Virginia Wing - Forward Constant Motion
With many groups, a reduction in their personnel is often mirrored in a simplification of their sound. In Virginia Wing’s case, their reconfiguration from a trio to a two-piece sees them blossoming from the previously cold, Kosmische palette found on their debut LP Measures of Joy into the wider-reaching, fully focused sound of Forward Constant Motion. The album dives headlong into the synthetic waves that lapped around the edges of their initial work, drawing as much from the compressed thump of Homework-era Daft Punk as the languid new age-isms of Laurie Anderson to create a bold and inventive modern pop record. We felt quite out of our depth when it came to making our first album. For the sake maintaining focus and not completely wrecking our self-esteem, we limited ourselves (in terms of influence) to the sound heard on Measures of Joy,” says Pillay. “This time around, we had the confidence in the fact that we were actually capable of making a full length record so we cast the net a bit wider. More than anything, we wanted this record to expand in every direction: the poppy parts are poppier, the weird parts are weirder, hopefully” Virginia Wing’s strength is in taking recognised pop structures and unearthing the exit points within them. Case in point is lead-off single Grapefruit, which emerges from a cacophony of crackles and hums and drifts in and out of focus, even while clocking in at a lean sub-four minutes...
