Led by Pimmon's scintillating On the Other Hand this Carbon Fire is (Flammable) & following yesterday's post on Sound&Fury (& the day before's Machinefabriek-guided stops by Tim Catlin & Adrian Klumpes), a quick overview of some of our other Australian enthusiasms & passions - besides The Necks, of course...
Streams of much of the outstanding Verona (Low Point) by what is quite possibly my favourite band in the world today, Spartak, & the second volume of the great New Weird Australia series below. Note also that those really fine Scissor Lock remixes are downloadable from his SoundCloud...
Note to self: follow-up needed to redress the glaring absence here of such greats as John Chantler/Lawrence English & Pedal, as well as the many Triosk splinters (especially the Adrian Klumpes/Shoeb Ahmad stuff), the Seaworthy collaboration with Fabio Orsi & much more, no doubt...
Previous coverage (Pimmon/Seaworthy) & here (Seaworthy) & here (Pedal/Seaworthy/Solo Andata) & here (Klumpes/Ahmad).
