Artist: ANGEL EYES
Title: Final Fare
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $22.00
"Sonically, ANGEL EYES is both airborne and barren: alarmingly spacious and eternal. That album conjures images of worlds, kingdoms and landscapes with totally foreign colour schemes and an abundance of space. The dread I mention isnt one of imminent danger but instead a kind of Lovecraftian lack of comprehension-of having a tiny hint at something bigger than you, something you will never know." - Shaun Prescott, Crawlspace.

Artist: BLANK REALM
Title: Deja What?
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: UK
Price: $21.00
"BLANK REALMs wax follow up to their debut LP on Not Not Fun. This second album sees the band delving deeper into pop territory while still keeping their feet firmly rooted in the shimmering haze of garage rock psychedelia. Sounds like something you would find hidden at the bottom of your dads dusty collection. Your dad is a stoner." - Bedroom Suck.
SOLD OUT

Artist: KITCHENS FLOOR
Title: Loneliness Is A Dirty Mattress
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $17.00
"Debut full-length from Brisbane downer pop trio. Songs frome the stifling heat of suburban sharehousing; the stinking carpet and broken showers. Absolute pop gems shrouded in mouldy spaghetti." -Bedroom Suck
SOLD OUT

Artist: LOWER PLENTY
Title: Sister Sister
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $18.00
"Named after a suburb perched on the outer fringes of Melbourne, Lower Plenty are comprised of some of Australias most talented musicians. The quartet are typically Australian in that they seem to exist on borrowed members, drawing together musicians responsible for bands like Total Control, The UV Race, Deaf Wish and The Focus. Unlike the harsh and direct approach of many of these outfits, Lower Plenty take the circular route, preferring to dwell in isolation and self-reflection, the result being some truly astonishing home recordings. The quartet of Daniel Twomey (percussion), Jensen Tjhung (guitar + vocal), Sarah Heyward (percussion + vocal) and Al Montfort (guitar + vocal) all hail from various areas in and around Melbourne, a city known for its ability to attract cultural expatriates from around the country, often leaving the rest of the continent devoid of activity. It is an incestuous town - communities are tight; bands share members, record in home-made studios, and often play to packed venues or back-alley warehouses alike. Of late, it seems as though Lower Plenty have come to personify this approach to music making in Melbourne. They meet rarely, in the down time between tours or jobs. Rumour has it they gather around a kitchen table, write and record on the spot, and call it quits for another year, heading home to pick up their other projects. As a result, their records take on a quality of restlessness. Songs enter the room, stir around, and depart just as suddenly, leaving the listener with a sense of something lost. It is this impact that has kept Lower Plenty active in Melbourne, despite all odds. Listeners demand it; they are a crowd favourite, and if word of a rare Lower Plenty gig gets around, artists and musicians from all corners of the city will be there, waiting patiently. This album was recorded in a kitchen in Collingwood, I was there, I saw it happen. It was probably freezing cold and grey outside, the band were rugged up against the cold of another Melbourne winter. We exchanged a few brief words before I retreated out the front door, leaving them to their reverie. They looked at peace in that small house, seated in a circle, each exploring a musical idea of another. The results are here on paper, wrapped up with a bow. Sister, Sister.” - Bedroom Suck.

Artist: PER PURPOSE
Title: Heil Progress
Format: 7"
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $11.00
"PER PURPOSE are a three piece from Brisbane combining a rapid minutemen-funk-jazz approach with rollicking Australiana in the tradition of bands like The Go-Betweens and Tactics. Works out pretty good in the end. Australian import." -Bedroom Suck.
SOLD OUT

Artist: PRIMITIVE MOTION
Title: Worlds Floating By
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $22.00
"PRIMITIVE MOTION is the lovely finger-paint scrawl of Brisbane residents LEIGHTON CRAIG and SANDRA SELIG. Together they conjure repetitive waves of dream/float pop using an array of cheap keyboards and machine-made beats woven with echo-drenched vocals, brass, wind instruments and off-kilter drumming. The music of Primitive Motion is suspended in time at the blissful confluence of kosmiche Kraut rock and post-punk DIY. Reset your clocks to Primitive Motion. After releasing a string of 7′′s, cassettes and cdr-s on US label Soft Abuse, Australian cassette imprint A Guide to Saints, and Craigs own Kindling label; Worlds Floating By is PMs first long player." - Bedroom Suck.
SOLD OUT

Artist: SLUG GUTS
Title: Howlin Gang
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $17.00
“The second LP from SLUG GUTS is a noticeably more mature record than their debut. While the Guts still pay homage to Australias strong swamp rock lineage, Howlin Gang brings something new to a genre that has seen too many boring recreations. Its a reverb-drenched mess thats punctuated by duelling riffs and tom-heavy drums. Jimi Kritzlers high-pitched growl is removed from this record and in its place is the baritone drawl of bass player James Dalgleish. SLUG GUTS hate Brisbane so much so that they thought recording this in a railway carriage in Ipswich would be better than staying in their home town. They seem to feed off what they see as a festering abyss. Its intentionally unsettling.” -Sam Davidson, Two Thousand Limited Australian tour LP, originally released in the USA on Sacred Bones Records.

Artist: SUPERSTAR
Title: A Toast To...
Format: LP
Label: Bedroom Suck
Country: Australia
Price: $22.00
"SUPERSTAR make floating music-dirges, urges; glistening, pastoral sounds; super slow & soft. The duos first LP presents the smooth and sweet distillation of the glazed melodies and free-range textures that have slowly matured over the bands five year history. Already at work on a second LP and numerous independent releases, the duos live show is a selection of fortified classics and fresh weaves-a truly high-sheen touch to an evening of quality living." - Bedroom Suck.
