Born amidst our current socially distanced climate, a collective of musicians and visual and performance artists have collaborated on a new project – The Isolation Improvisation Collective.

Melbourne/Naarm-based musician Will Weir is adding more form and substance to his new caustic post-punk project Big Bill and the Bigots, releasing the visuals for his most-recent single ‘Sunday Mourning’. Boasting unsettling vampiric imagery, the clip pairs perfectly with the unhinged Australiana imbued within the track’s rasping sonics.

Australian-born and France-based nomadic troubadour Nathan Roche has resurfaced alongside his band Le Villejuif Underground with a new 7″ in the can, out now through Born Bad Records. The A-side track ‘Ghost of the Water’ is a tipsy take on liquor-soaked excess and drying out – the promise of sobriety and the clarity we hope it will bring.

After drip-feeding a succession of tracks to build momentum ahead the arrival of forthcoming record Panic/Desire, synthwave and technopop maestro Simona Castricum is sharing the visuals for the album’s third single ‘The Present’. Part resistance anthem and part club-friendly cathartic release, ‘The Present’ is a firm rebuke at the anti-transgender sentiments communicated by conservative media outlets and backwards political institutions, as well as a message of support for her allies in the trenches.

Sydney crew Bushing are putting final pieces in place for their forthcoming debut LP Thanatophobia, ratcheting up activity with a brand-new clip for recently released single ‘X I A N X P’ (pronounced ‘Christian Experience’). An ominous slab of art-punk noise, ‘X I A N X P’ dissects that narrative surrounding Australia’s early settlement culture and the gradual dissipation of religious spirit over the ensuing generations.
