Leaving – ‘Days Apart’ (mp3)
‘Western Schism’ is part two of the geo-specific compilations put out by New Weird Australia. This one covers eighteen bands and artists from Perth in Western Australia. I’ll let New Weird Australia explain the compilation.
“The schism herein is as much geographical as it is artistic. These artists are outliers in both the literal and creative sense of the word – they celebrate their physical relationship with the world by amplifying it artistically. Distance need not be a tyranny – as is shown in this collection, it may in fact give us just the space we need to run free and get wild”.
I’ve come across a couple of these Perth-based artists but most are new to me. It’s great to gain exposure to new experimental work from WA so nice work New Weird. Check it out for yourself over on their site.
