  1. DIAL UP
    by MOOR MOTHER & YATTA
    DIALING UP TO YOU DIALING UP TO YOU
    2020 is her year, as she continues with this extensive catalogue of releases during probably the most difficult year many of us have ever faced. Much appreciation to your amazing output Camae.
  2. All Living Can Anyone Be Here
    by Steven Ball
    Private Ambulance Private Ambulance
    Abstract observations of a world in crisis, or just oblique, yet somehow comforting experimentalism. Either way, I'm a fan. Thanks Zaph.
  3. 99 Dreams EP
    by Hachiku
    99 Luftballons 99 Luftballons
    Nice little record from this excellent Melbourne artist, she being part of the superb Milk! label. Contains a beautiful reading of Nena's mighty 80s hit "99 Luftballons".
  4. Passovers
    by SEX SWING
    The Passover (IDLES Remix) The Passover (IDLES Remix)
    Great idea this. After the release of their magnificent "Type II" album in May, they sent some tracks to musical friends for remixing as an extra activity in lockdown I reckon. The results are excellent.
  5. NO
    by Boris
    Loveless Loveless
    Boris as only Boris can be. They've hit us with one of their best ever records, a fine amalgam of everything great about them. More magnificent music to sustain us.
  6. C0N$TRUCT!0N 002: The Caution Tape
    by maassai
    GLO IN THE DARK GLO IN THE DARK
    Hard edged grit and grime, honest and highly impressive. Excellent and quite unique hip hop in many ways.

  11. Knots, Movement
    by Ashley Paul & Otto Willberg
    Breathless Air Breathless Air
    Very interesting record this, and Ashley is a jazz improviser (to simplify things) that I've followed for some time. With Otto's accompaniment they have created a fine disc indeed. Recorded live at Cafe Oto in February this year, it's good that they got in ahead of the CoVid lockdown.
  12. Cro Memory Grin
    by Oily Boys
    GTrance GTrance
    Violent and pulverising, Oz annihilation out of Sydney. I've never had a frontal lobotomy but listening to this on headphones may well duplicate the experience.
  13. Lagoon
    by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith
    Pretty interesting stuff from this highly celebrated experimental artist. After a jaunty, bouncy start it quickly switches to an ongoing rumbling affair. Recommended.
  14. Waiting Time/Weighting/Wading Time: On Juneteenth, Watch Night, Freedom’s Eve, and Emancipation Day
    by BLACK QUANTUM FUTURISM
    Another Moor Mother release, this time an EP containing three free-form pieces inspired by the writings of the same name by Rasheedah Phillips of the BQF Organisation. The work is available as a PDF with the release download.
  15. Audio Commentary
    by Snowy Band
    Edge Of The Weekend Edge Of The Weekend
    Beautiful stuff from this Melbourne collective, highly melodic and extremely listenable. Thanks to Paul Gough at Pimpod.com.
  16. Lies Are All You Speak
    by DC Cardwell
    Recommended again by Paul Gough at Pimpod.com. This is a track that pretty much nails the current US President.
  17. Adventures In The Skin Trade
    by Brat Farrar
    My Kind Of Thing My Kind Of Thing
    I've been following this Melbourne bedroom artist for a fair while now. Great new record with plenty of fast, frenetic tracks to enjoy.
  18. The Earth With Her Crowns
    by Laura Cannell
    Black Sleep of Night Black Sleep of Night
    So, so good. Laura once again completely extrapolates the ambience and deep atmospherics of her recorded environment, moving this time from her beloved cathedrals to a London Power Station. Breathtaking, as her medieval musics pierce the air, particularly her violins. Tremendous.
  19. It Don't Bother Me / Good Morning Diner
    by Emma Tricca
    It Don't Bother Me It Don't Bother Me
    Fine stuff here, and yet another recommendation from Paul Gough at Pimpod.com. The A Side is a superb cover of an old Bert Jansch song, and her backing group includes Sonic Youth's former drummer Steve Shelley.
  20. Offering - Live at Le Guess Who
    by Nicole Mitchell and Moor Mother
    Prototype Eve Prototype Eve
    Live improvisations by 2 very interesting and talented women. Afrofuturists, truth tellers and jazz fiends both.
