Dream Damage is excited to announce the release of Bare Grillz debut LP ‘Friends’ out now on Dream Damage and Y202 Records. Bare Grillz are a noisy three piece hailing from Newcastle, Australia. 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!

TV COLOURS – PURPLE SKIES, TOXIC RIVER (TRAILER) by L.A THOMAS

[ 24 May 2013 | No Comments - Write a comment | ]

‘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.

Tropical is dead. It’s a new year and Canberra Cold Climate Punks The Fighting League have been busy recording, laying down tracks for a new EP/Album set to come out at the end of the year. Bat on Ball is the first single to come out since their kick-ass 2011 debut “Tropical Paradise”.

It’s been a few years since Thee Oh Sees tempted Canberra with their insane, hectic and cacophonous live show. Having built a feverishly prolific reputation for their immense output, Thee Oh Sees return to celebrate their 14th release Putrifiers II with performances at the highly regarded All Tomorrows Parties festival and a blitz national tour serving tight psychedelic jams and an unrestrained live show.

Forming as a solo outlet for John Dwyer, Thee Oh Sees soon evolved into a full band. Dwyer’s knack for all things music started at a young age, and has since seen him front several influential underground American bands. Thee Oh Sees have formed a tight relationship with Australia over the years, with numerous tours, split 12 inches and USA tours with Australia’s own Total Control.

Thee Oh Sees are back in Canberra tomorrow night. Playing at the Transit Bar with The Fighting League & TV Colours in support!

Mon 11th Feb – Transit Bar. Doors open at 8pm.
