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.”

New Weird Australia Podcast #29, Wood & Wire – Label Feature

From 2009-2012, the New Weird Australia Podcast featured selected interviews and in-studio recordings from my FBi radio show, as well as live performances from events, video interviews and more.

In New Weird Australia Podcast #29, we highlight a new companion project called Wood & Wire – a digital record label which sets out to promote experimentation in Australian music across all genres.

Wood & Wire focusses on free, artist EPSs and albums, and it launched in June 2012 with four releases from PEON, EMILY GRANTHAM, BOK DARKLORD and MACHINE DEATH. This podcast episode features tracks from each of these releases, as well as exclusive tracks from the next two additions to the catalogue from SHISD and REGIONAL CURSE, due in July 2012.
