Friends is a product of several years and journeys; thirteen tracks of raw and noisy neo-punk. The album was recorded and mixed in Canberra early 2012 by LA Thomas (Danger Beach) and Bobby Kill (TV Colours), after a drunken pact at that years Camp A Low Hum festival. Friends was released on Vinyl through Y202 in early January and is now available to buy on limited edition cassette through Dream Damage.

Dream Damage is proud to announce the release of ‘New Teen Angst Pt. 2′, the long awaited debut from Slow Violence.

Slow Violence is the solo project of one Canberra native currently living/studying in the US. He makes music in his dorm room using collected field recordings, processed instrumentation, vocals and samples “resulting in ominous compositions that bleed across multiple genres, spanning sample-heavy R&B, found-sound atmosphere, jittery beatmaking, melody-steeped ambient, horror-film foreboding and even delicately sung dream-pop.” (Mess + Noise)

New Teen Angst Pt.2 is now available to download (FOR FREE) from our bandcamp

POWER MOVES is the blinged and bugged out beats project of composer/artist Austin Buckett (Golden Blonde, Pollen Trio) who recently relocated to Sydney after a year or so hopping between Berlin and New York City.

We’re proud to announce the release of POWER MOVES debut beat tape Psycho Shower Scene, a raw collage of collected field recordings, vocal interjections and left over album stems inspired by the dark absurdity of Tim and Eric, Chicago Footwork, dub, and modern gangster aesthetics. Also featuring fragmented cuttings from Wu – Tang Clan, Freddie Gibbs, Capone n Noreaga and Slum Village accapellas, the free EP exists both as a record in its own right and as a beat tape for future recycling and re-use by MC’s and producers alike.

Psycho Shower Scene was mixed/mastered by Sydney producer Thomas William and is now available to download for FREE!

‘Beverly’ is the first single from Purple Skies, Toxic River, an album some six years in the making. After scrapping two completed versions of the record along the way, Canberra’s TV Colours has finally realised his long-held vision. Purple Skies, Toxic River is a densely layered debut: the product of teenage obsessions with heavy metal, punk and ’80s cinema threaded together with sound collages and sonic vignettes. In Beverly, the album’s pop centrepiece, chugging guitars, wavering synths and thundering drum machines bring home a soaring, anthemic chorus. At the start of the year, a full band featuring members of Assassins 88, Danger Beach and The Fighting League was assembled for live shows. The four piece have have already played alongside Deerhoof and Thee Oh Sees and will tour nationally later in the year.

Dave Spirit and Chris Valley are Spirit Valley, a crushing two piece from Sydney. As the self proclaimed purveyors of Doomshine, Spirit Valley haven’t let their newly found genre down, providing blasting guitars driven by a wall of pounding tom rolls all below the guttural reaches of singer/guitarist Dave Spirit’s vocals chords. Spirit Valley’s debut EP ‘Death’ is a dark experience, channeling the strangulated ferocity of The Birthday Party against a booze soaked balladry reminiscent of Tom Waits. Since their inception, Spirit Valley have fast become renowned for their powerful live shows, and in saying this we a proud to announce the release of their debut recording. ‘Death’ was independently released by the band and is now distributed through Dream Damage Records via our online store

Spirit Valley will be on tour throughout January and Febuary in support of their release:
