  14. Nora Guthrie - "Home Before Dark" (2:38)
  15. Once - "Joanna" (3:17)
Review: Sky Girl is the work of two noted (but arguably under-appreciated) crate diggers, DJ Sundae and Julien Dechery, and gathers together a veritable treasure trove of obscure material loosely connected by (in the label's own words) "the same longing sentiment". Its' fifteen tracks touch on a variety of hazy, down-tempo styles, and were recorded at various points between 1961 and '91. There's much to admire throughout, from the folksy psychedelic pop of The Rising Storm's "Frozen Laughter", and spoken word eccentricity of Scott Seskind's "I Remember", to the dreamy, eyes-closed ambience of Nini Raviolette & Hugo Weris' "Slow" and string-laden samba-folk of Nora Guthrie's "Home Before Dark".

Track Six (12")
Cat: ES 015. Rel: 18 Sep 19
Techno
  1. FSOM - "Track Six" (5:43)
  2. Andy Rantzen - "Harmonic Eye" (4:17)
Review: Melbourne-based Efficient Space continue to plunder the vaults of their local electronic music legacy on their latest release. Indeed it's a rather parochial affair on the A side which features Future Sound Of Melbourne - an electronic group comprised of Davide Carbone, Josh Abrahams and Steve Robbins. Each respective artist went on to achieve considerable success with their solo efforts afterwards - Abrahams in particular finding mainstream success on the pop drum'n' bass anthem "Addicted To Bass" in the late '90s. Their offering "Track Six" is a true zeitgeist of early '90s techno that takes the best aspects of US and European sounds of the time. On the flip, Sydney legend Andy Rantzen (of duo Itch-E and Scratch-E (along with Paul Mac)) offers up the fairly minimal and hypnotic jam "Harmonic Eye".

Cold Cafe (12")
Cat: ES 012. Rel: 22 May 19
Coldwave/Synth
  1. Cold Cafe (3:03)
  2. Won't Wear It For Long (3:01)
  3. You Bring These Things (3:37)
  4. Cold Cafe (demo) (3:10)
  5. Problem Page (demo) (2:40)
Review: Before making her mark with 1981 minimal wave single "Cold Cafe", Australian artist Karen Marks enjoyed an eclectic career. This included spells in music journalism and band management. It's for her brief underground synth-pop career that she's best remembered, though. This all too brief career is celebrated on this five-track EP that includes every track she ever completed. Naturally the title track stands out, but there's plenty to enjoy elsewhere, too, most notably the French horn-sporting minimal wave folksiness of "You Bring These Things", a spacey and sludgy demo version of "Cold Cafe" and the bold moodiness of closing cut "Problem Page". Throughout, Marks' Kirsty MacColl style vocals stand out.

  9. Maroochy Barambah - "Mongungi" (dance mix) (6:39)
  10. Third Eye - "Behold The Angel Of Frequency" (5:08)
  11. Tetrphnm - "Track 11" (3:59)
  12. Screensaver - "Eliminated" (3:55)
Review: Efficient Space's latest essential release sees Andras and Instant Peterson take a trawl through the darker, lesser-visited corners of Australian electronic music. According to the label, the pair lifted material from "local 12" singles, CD-Rs and the archives of community radio station 3RRR FM". Highlights come thick and fast throughout, from the acid-flecked, "Nude Photo" style Detroit fun of FSOM's "Resist The Beat" and chiming, trumpet-laden bliss of Ian Eccles-Smith's "The Slaughtering Eye", to the jaunty, mid-90s New York style bounce of Blimp's "Yellowgold" and the ultra-deep ambient techno pulse of Tetrphnm's "Track 11". Check, too, the enveloping dreaminess of Screensaver's drifting ambient closer, and the jazzy dancefloor depth of Inner Harmomy's "Da Lub Club".

Oz Waves (LP)
Cat: ES 004. Rel: 01 Mar 17
Coldwave/Synth
  1. Irena Xero - "Lady On The Train" (4:04)
  2. Andy Rantzen - "Will I Dream" (4:31)
  3. Prod - "Knife On Top" (2:56)
  4. Software Seduction - "New Collision" (3:51)
  5. Ironing Music - "Don't Wish It Away" (3:07)
  6. He Dark Age - "Holding Out For Eden" (4:32)
  7. The Horse He's Sick - "Larynx" (4:49)
  8. MK Ultra & The Assassins Of Light - "Jesus Krist Klap Rap" (Orthodox mix) (3:28)
  9. Moral Fibro - "Take A Walk In The Sun" (2:36)
  10. Zerox Dreamflesh - "Squids Can Fly" (4:36)
Review: The legacy of homegrown Australian rock in the '80s may be dominated by somewhat boisterous and boorish forces in the mainstream, wiith the like of Midnight Oil, Jimmy Barnes, INXS and John Farnham comprising the national heroes, yet cultural stereotyping would ignore a whole plethora of underground artists that went almost completely unnoticed yet continue to delight some thirty plus years on. 'Oz Waves', compiled by maverick DJ Steele Bonus, includes the unlikely likes of MX Ultra & The Assassins, Zerox Dreamflesh and The Horse He's Sick, yet their minimal electronics, dub-tinged strangeness and post-punk dreamscapes sound like another weird world - one on a thrilling knife-edge between past, present and future.

  5. Gandi Bawong (4:16)
  6. Black Crow (4:48)
Review: Efficient Space's latest release is certainly an intriguing one. It was sparked by the discovery of a CD copy of an obscure, mid-'90s album made by the late Victorian musician Peter Mumme and three Aboriginal songmen from the Yolngu people of the Arnhem Land in Australia's Northern territory. Uniquely, the album - here reissued under a new title with an additional unreleased piece - mixed the singers' traditional vocals with impeccable ambient soundscapes, gently pulsating electronic rhythms and the kind of fluid and wide-eyed synthesizer melodies more often found on '80s new age recordings. The results still sound remarkable and, thanks to the Yolngu singing style, surprisingly haunting.

  1. My Gull (1:52)
  2. Loch & Key (4:30)
  3. Perishable (3:35)

  5. Idle (6:21)
  6. All Hands Bury The Dead (4:10)
  7. Safe Bird (5:21)
  8. Crossing The Bar (8:03)
Review: There's much to admire about Andrew Wilson and John Tanner's second collaborative full-length, which sees them build on the fluid and atmospheric ambient of 2016 debut "69". Utilizing a relatively small array of instruments - mainly piano, acoustic guitar and a few choice synthesizers - the pair serves up ear-catching soundscapes wrapped in atmospheric field recordings and just the right amount of processed effects. For the most part their compositions are summery and seductive, emphasizing unfussy combinations of melodic refrains and positive chord progressions. There are, though, one or two more experimental cuts, with the tipsy, slow-motion shuffle of "Idle" and spaced-out "Safe Bird" standing out.
