Wood And Wire – New Music from Elbee & Invisible Prism


New on Wood And Wire this month …

Wood And Wire‘s June release schedule invites you to a take journey to the inner reaches of the mind; follow the sines to the symbols, to a place where time has no meaning, courtesy of our cosmonauts of inner space Elbee & Invisible Prism.

Psychic map-maker Invisible Prism (pictured) drops his debut on Wood And Wire, titled Innermost Outerspace.  The EP is a analogue travelogue of subtle body music, timelessspace anthems and psychosomatic experiments – an instructional manual for a fantastic voyage.

New on Wood And Wire …

Filthy, filthy, very filthy.

Like a pack of kids at the back of the bus, hacking Minecraft and throwing buns at hipsters, Sydney’s Filthy Children arrive with a howl, indifferent to the past, present and future.
