Sonic Masala reviews first ten Wood & Wire releases We’re quite humbled by the commitment of Sonic Masala who’ve taken it upon themselves to review the first TEN releases on Wood & Wire – from Emily Grantham, Machine Death, BOK Darklord, Shisd, Regional Curse (Stacey Wilson / Rites Wild), Setec, Kučka, automating and Fm. An amazing effort, and a great way to catch up on what you might have missed. They note: “New Weird Australia is an Australian institution that champions this continent’s more left of field experimental artists, branching out from a mere radio program on Sydney’s FBi station to become a beacon of ambition and exploration. This year they have opened up into a record label too, albeit a digital one, called Wood & Wire. They have close to ten releases out already, and with another due out this month I thought it best to do a small feature on these albums – because there are some amazing gems here.” Read all ten reviews at sonicmasala.blogspot.com.au.
