As the country starts to slowly creep towards a sense of normalcy, several isolation-inspired projects are starting to see the light of day. The latest is Tender Connection – a compilation album put together by phenomenal queer-feminist label Tender Collection. The mix features work from a number of artists dabbling in the realms of experimental and outsider sound, resulting in a striking work that manages to form a silver lining of sorts around an incredibly dark cloud. We have the sincere privilege of premiering the release, which launches officially today!
Melbourne/Naarm’s Plastic Chairs have released a new four-track offering filled with frenetic and off-kilter post-punk jams. The combination of quick-stepping percussion, serrated and angular guitars, and a weighty low end create an intense listening experience that threatens to go off the rails in the best way.
