If you’re still regularly checking back on the Discontent blog, then I commend you – it’s been quiet around these parts for some time, and it’s certainly showing some signs of neglect. This is not without good cause however – my focus has been almost entirely on developing the ‘New Weird Australia’ project, with the blog, netlabel, event series, radio show and podcasts all projecting a wide array of eclectic and experimental Australian music.
Inevitably, with such a high degree of activity, something has to give – and thus it’s time to draw an end to Discontent. I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to all of the mixtapes as much as I’ve enjoyed curating them. Additional thanks to all of the guest curators that have so kindly put a great deal of work into expanding our aural horizons with their own contributions to the series – please do take the time to leaf through the site and pick up on any that you might have missed.
Of course, the commitment to curating free music continues over at New Weird Australia – visit newweirdaustralia.com for our bimonthly free compilations.
Thanks for listening – see you on the other side.
