Civil Civic will release their debut full-length album Rules on 1 February 2013 via Remote Control. The release coincides with the duo’s upcoming debut Australian tour and appearance at ATP Melbourne’s ‘I’ll Be your Mirror’ Festival.
Rules is an album that came into the world slowly, the songs delicately pieced together over a two year period. The title of the record reflects the in-built set of guidelines that Civil Civic was founded upon and operates within. Guided by the desire to adhere to bare bones drum programming and minimal production trickery, Civil Civic have created a record that hinges on its ability to be performed in a live setting.
A wholly instrumental affair, Rules is a swirling maelstrom of guitar buzz and reverberating atmospheric intensity. It does not dictate any stories nor does it proclaim wisdom or insight into human affairs. Being liberated from the burden of messages, Rules can do what it does best, delivering a mix of teeth-grinding intensity, pop triumphalism and party-on abandon.
Civil Civic are Aaron Cupples and Ben Green, two Australian ex-pats, now living in London and Barcelona respectively. In February 2013, the duo will perform live in their first series of Australian shows since meeting in Barcelona in 2009.
See Civil Civic live at the Black Bear Lodge in Brisbane on Thursday 7February, at Brighton Up Bar in Sydney on Friday 8 February, at ATP Melbourne’s ‘I’ll Be Your Mirror’ Festival on Saturday 16 February, and a special show at The Tote in Melbourne on Tuesday 19 February.
Civil Civic – Rules is released on 1 February 2013 on LP, CD and digital formats

We are pleased to announce the release of the self-titled debut album from Chelsea Light Moving on March 1 via Matador/Remote Control.
Chelsea Light Moving is the current group led by Sonic Youth founder Thurston Moore.
He is the songwriter and plays over-amped hyper electric guitar and sings with raw-glam-destructo vocals. The band is a four piece featuring Samara Lubelski, who has played violin with Thurston Moore on his last two solo LPs (Demolished Thoughts and Trees Outside The Academy) and with Chelsea Light Moving plays deep psyche pop metal bass guitar.
Keith Wood, who records under the aegis Hush Arbors, plays electric guitar with a pick forged from angel wing and John Moloney, aka “Pegasus”, approaches the drums like an asteroid hurtling toward Earth.
The first CD self-titled was recorded in two spurious sessions with engineer Justin Pizzoferrato in Sone Lab, a killer studio in Easthampton, Massachusetts.
The band is ready to detonate any birthday party, wedding or hullaboo in any country, planet or stratosphere that doesn’t support right wing extremist NRA sucking bozo-ology.
Fat Freddy’s Drop have released a live music video for new single ‘Silver And Gold’.
Shot on tour in Australia this November, the video features concert footage of the track at GRAPHIC Festival, Sydney Opera House (an epic affair billed as Blackbird: An Animated & Illustrated Album Preview), The Eclipse Festival in far North Queensland and sold out shows on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
“Truth is, we were lucky to get this footage home safely after having to wrestle salt water crocs and dodging an ocean full of stingers in the seasonal electrical storms,” Director Mark James Williams said.
‘Silver And Gold’ is the first single from the perennial soul shakers forthcoming album Blackbird out early 2013 via Remote Control. Since being released this November as a free digital download, ‘Silver And Gold’ has reached over 9000 downloads via www.fatfreddysdrop.com and Freddy’s Soundcloud.
Fat Freddy’s Drop first emerged from the underground club scene of Wellington in 1999, jamming along to instrumental mixes of funk, house and hip hop records dropped by DJ Mu (akaFitchie) at parties around the Capital. Thirteen years later and Freddys arestill together, still doing things in their inimitable way and still getting better and better.
The bands debut album, Based On A True Story (2005), reached nine-times platinum and holds the record for the highest-selling album by a New Zealand artist in the country’s history. Renowned world-wide for their brilliant live performances and funky mix of dub, reggae, soul, jazz, rhythm and blues, and techno, the band have played legendary shows at venues such as Brixton Academy (LDN), Paradiso (Amsterdam), Vega (Copenhagen), The Coliseum (Lisbon), Henry Fonda Theatre (Los Angeles) and Le Trianon (Paris).
An all-encompassing mix of blues, dub and dance music, Silver And Gold will also be available this month on limited edition 12” vinyl.

From salt, sand and circuitry, Australian industrial dance act Forces assemble their self titled EP, available on limited edition 12″ vinyl via Siberia Records. Simultaneously sumptuous and sterile, Forces new framework offers guidance through the hostile terrain it generates.
Thirsting for a synthesis between body, land and technology, this work is the first significant artifact in Forces exploration of dance and pop. Their sound embodying both the vastness of Australia’s arid landscapes and its voracious appetite for technology.
First single ‘World in Focus’ is available as a free download. Exploring the notion of Australia as playground, ‘World in Focus’ offers visions of a dynamic landscape worthy of the bodies of tomorrow.
Forces have surged to prominence since emerging in 2011, quickly establishing a reputation for confronting live performance coupled with concise and visceral dance music. Forces live highlights include performances at The Sydney Opera house for Vivid Festival, alongside Zola Jesus and Light Asylum, and many shows with their contemporaries including My Disco, Gang Gang Dance and label-mate Kirin J Callinan.
The self titled EP will be available on limited edition 12″ vinyl on Midnight Juggernauts’ label Siberia Records on 9 December 2012. The digital release will be available via technodissidents.bandcamp.com.
