New Editions, an offshoot label imprint for New Weird Australia, winds up its schedule with two new albums – from Thomas William vs Scissor Lock and Strange Forces. Since launching in 2010, the series has released albums and EPs from Caught Ship, Blake Freele, Paneye, TANTRUMS, No Zu, Kris Keogh, Forenzics and Spartak. Each release has been available in both physical and digital formats.
The final two releases in the series see Sydney experimental electronic artists Thomas William and Scissor Lock coming together for their debut collaborative release, ‘Jewelz‘, as well as the first Australian physical release for Brisbane psych-rock ex-pats Strange Forces, who have been tearing up a storm in Berlin over the last two years.
Both releases are available for download in full from FMA:
Ducks Battle Satan on Thomas William vs Scissor Lock: "Like Sigur Ros mixed with Pimmon with Birchville Cat Motel producing the most wonderful chill out experimentronica ... both transcendent and challenging, Jewlez is a very fine release indeed."
20jazzfunkgreats on Strange Forces: "Rattling, monstrous invocations of acid-rock breakdowns both mental and musical ... The Old Ones would be proud."
