Donor Drive 2013 « RTRFM / The Sound Alternative.

Going Green and Harnessing the Sun

RTRFM want to go green and we are very close to reaching our goal, but to achieve this we still need a few more people to give generously. To all those that have donated so far, we thank you, as this would not happen without your help.

Those that have yet to donate, you have until the end of the Financial Year – June 30 – to donate to RTRFM.

So far we have raised $7,153 of the $10,000 target.

This amount will help in the installation of solar panels to help offset our electricity bill.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and if you donate $25 or more you go in the draw to win your daily bread for a year at Mt Lawley’s newest bakery, The Mary Street Bakery.

You can donate here of call us on 9260 9200 during office hours.

Clan Analogue release three new EPs of electronic agitation…

In 2012 Australian electronic music collective Clan Analogue celebrated its 20th birthday with the Headspace Severed Heads tribute compilation. Now a new selection of Clan Analogue artists have emerged from their underground bedroom studios to release three new EPs of electronic agitation vibrating into the sonic void.

From noir electro-cabaret to abstract post-IDM synthesis to psychedelic two-step space funk, this selection of releases continues Clan Analogue’s quest to expose new tones to the harsh environment of the modern audio landscape.

Aeriae: Nurse 2 Alyssa Type
Aeriae is a Sydney-based practitioner of abstract angular electronics, here paving the way for his forthcoming album Victris with ‘Nurse 2 Alyssa Type’, a dark techno cut of cascading textures, intersecting synth lines and precisely calibrated sonics. The EP includes a genre-tripping set of remixes, distilling elements of the original into its primordial essences, from pure ambience to syncopated chaos. Look out for Victris later this year on Clan Analogue.

Actual Russian Brides: Wife Beats
Actual Russian Brides have a diverse and quixotic creative output, layering dense lyrical excursions onto electronica extracted from old and new synthesizers and drum machines. Having relocated their studio recently from Berlin to Sydney, the new EP Wife Beats is the duo at their most ironic and darkly witty: highly danceable tracks expertly fused with seductive storytelling.

Tiatto: Full Moon
Tiatto formed in a chance encounter between Melbournite Ben Wah and Mancunian Max Devere in a Brixton garrett opposite a crackhouse. Relocating to Melbourne they enlisted master synthesist Nick Fakeman and Canadian conceptual svengali Ganz Enfarben for extra musical credibility and will to power. So what is Full Moon? Miles Davis jamming with Squarepusher or The KLF meets Hawkwind might get you half way there. Perhaps its an elegy for UK breaks before dubstep or a journey through the night from insanity to redemption. Hear the Winduptoys remix for extra abstraction.
