Our New Releases
P1-47 / March 2013
Former Inland Sea member sets sail on his own boat. A heartfelt mix of instruments, styles and sounds, ranging from up-tempo power ballads to delicate folk tracks and cathartic blues numbers. The songs deal with love, escape, disillusionment and surrender, and other tricky aspects of human nature that can only be caught out of the corner of your eye.
P1-47 / April 5th 2013
April 5th will see the release of NO SIGNS as a new single from the album Come Up Invisible. We decided to make it into an EP and include a whole bunch of other songs as well. The record is a turning point for the band, as it features a couple of songs with the old Josh/Ben line up, as well as newer recordings with the Darek/Mel line up. It has a total of 8 songs: an edited and remixed NO SIGNS, one cover, one new song, two great new recordings of acoustic versions of album songs, a kick-ass remix of an album out-take you’ve never heard before, one album bonus track and the full version of No Signs. If you liked Come Up Invisible, this is like the bonus pack.. you’re in for a treat.

The Slow Push channels the post- punk rhythmic elements of Joy Division, Talking Heads and LCD SoundSystem and immediately demand attention through off-kilter, jagged rhythms and thoroughly schizophrenic punk tendencies.
As their second album, Misshapen Giants shows the continued growth of the band over the last few years with explorations of new textures and sounds. It sets out to fill in the areas that were a little lacking in their previous works, building up the energy levels of their studio work to that of their live shows. And while the album might not capture every ounce of the thrashing intensity of their live shows, the raw edge of its production contains moments of their full-throttle, floor-stomping shows.

P1-44 August 2012
I have, for a long time thought Tim Steward wrote purely from intuition, and not by the rule book. Structures and tunes straight from his imagination and heart. The new WE ALL WANT TO LP is the best example yet of his big goofy imagination and pulse. Joyous, then aching, adolescent, then full blown empathy and care. From live shows I was lucky enough to be at, I thought, again, he’s part of something super special. Come Up Invisible trumps what I hoped for. Pure joy. Tim Rogers, July 2012

- BANDITO FOLK
- RICK FIGHTS
It is not without toil that the things we love grow to be so vibrant.
Under the guise of the labour day weekend comes a night at the Zoo borne of such efforts. Brisbane’s outpost of promise HALFWAY plunder the flowers of romance after their recent foray with amour Richard Hawley.
Matt Somers from I Heart Hiroshima drags his dusty suitcase down the aisle for some RICK FIGHTS.
Newcomers BANDITO FOLK draw melancholic stares from dancehall blossoms…

WE ALL WANT TO will perform Come Up Invisible in its entirety, but this will be a show with a difference: a different guest lead singer will perform every song.
The focus will be on Brisbane artists and singers, with out-of-state surprise or two as the event draws closer. The process of selecting singers for each song is underway with some fantastic performers already enlisted.
