New Weird Australia & Octopus pi presented the first in a series of New Weird Australia live events at FBi Social in Kings Cross on Thursday 21st April 2011.
The night saw the long-overdue return of Sydney six-piece Underlapper, celebrating the launch of their third album ‘Sofly Harboured’ – an eclectic mix of post rock, experimental pop and downbeat electronic music, and the follow-up to the widely acclaimed 2007 album ‘Red Spring’.
In support, Sydney producer Cleptoclectics faced off against local compatriot Scissor Lock (fresh from the launch of his Collarbones collaboration), in the latest of their ongoing bouts of noise battles taking place in dark rooms across the city. Opening the night, solo artist Edwin Montgomery presented an inspired psychedelic tread through original songs, instrumentals and ambient textures. DJs Stupid Canon & Kimb Galercan filled the spaces along with projections from visual artist, Jeronimo.
