AST420. Recorded and released on the same day. 14 copies for friends of the label. No chrome-plated wheels are being reinvented here, Cough Syrup (imaginative title huh) is just four tracks of chopped and screwed tape-loops.

Here it is, the 50th release on Altered States and it's a corker. I am stoked to be involved in releasing these two tracks of deranged antipodean weirdness. The folks involved in Brando's have previously done time in some of the best groups Australia has offered over the last few years; Velvet Whip, The Zingers, Chrome Dome, Pathetic Human, Flat Fix, Soma Coma, the list goes on. While their previous output gives you a vague idea of the eclecticism of BI's collective taste, nothing can prepare you for the unique sound produced by them. Vibraphone, synth, drums, vocals. The New Wave is here.
Distort will have copies by the end of the week, Repressed Records not long after. US distro through Feel It and Little Big Chief Records.
Digital / direct orders here:
If you live in Melbourne, email me to arrange delivery or come over for a beer.

Like something straight off the set of New Wave Theatre, Brando's Island are a mutant-punk four-piece with members spread across Melbourne and Newcastle. Their debut 7" released on vocalist, Richard Costa's, Million Dollar Records imprint earlier in the year will go down as one of 2015's highlights for me. So it is with great pleasure that I present the b-side of their upcoming 7", "Cryo Capers".
To mark the occasion, Brando's are launching their record at Bar Open with some of the best electronic artists Melbourne has to offer.

Armour Group lay siege to The Tote on Wednesdays throughout August. Roman Nails is playing what will probably be the last show for the project on the 19th w/ the mind-warping Trichotillomania.
