Strain of Origin III

Things have been a little quiet round these parts of late, but never fear, we are slowly but surely working on new material which we hope will surface sometime soon. In the meantime here's a couple of recent Underlapper related things.

We were once again lucky enough to be involved in Feral Media's annual Strain of Origin compilation series, which is now in its third year. There are so many great artists included on this instalment and the remixes are some of the best to date.
We had the pleasure of remixing Melbourne duo Children of the Wave and in-turn our track Stockholm got the remix treatment from Aussie ex-pat Inch-time.

You can listen to both remixes via the player below and you can download the full compilation for free at the Feral Media bandcamp page here.

And lastly, we recently posted an improvised recording from the Underlapper vaults on our soundcloud page.
The piece was recorded sometime in 2003 by a very early incarnation of the band. Although very rough, the main parts eventually became the track Painting Red Things Grey which featured in our early live shows. Have a listen and see where it all began.

Until next time when we will hopefully have some new music to share.....

The wonderful Feral Media recently celebrated their 10 year anniversary and to mark the occasion they have released a bumper compilation featuring a stellar line-up of Australian talent.

We contributed a brand new track called Stockholm as well as a remix of our good friend Gentleforce's track Lift Up Your Weary Head.

This incredible compilation is now available digitally and also as a limited edition Playbutton.
Head to the Feral bandcamp site to hear what it's all about and check out our contributions below.

Congrats to Feral Media on achieving this wonderful milestone. Here's to another 10 years!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

To celebrate their 10 year anniversary Feral Media are releasing a bumper compilation featuring a killer line-up of artists who have been associated with the label over the years.

Artists included on the release are AFXJIM, Alpen, Anonymeye, Mark Barrage, Because of Ghosts, Broken Chip, Comatone, Faux Pas, Gentleforce, Haunts, ii, Pimmon, Raven, School of Two, Scissor Lock, Seaworthy, Brad Stafford (The Longest Day), Thomas William, 0point1 and of course us!

We have submitted a brand new track for the compilation entitled 'Stockholm' and we are really happy with the results.

The compilation will be released digitally and as a limited edition Playbutton, which is an MP3 player that doubles as a wearable badge. The artwork for the release was created by the super talented SOPP Collective who have been responsible for the artwork on many of the Feral releases, including the cover for our album Red Spring.

To assist with the release Feral have launched a Pozible crowd-funding campaign (basically pre-ordering) which we urge you all to support. There are some great rewards on offer in addition to the compilation itself so head on over and see what it's all about.

To whet your appetite you can watch the campaign video below which features snippets of a few tracks from the compilation and you can also hear the first full preview from the album here.
