Okay, first thing’s first: Our Golden Friend has everything you’re hoping for. Kicking off in Melbourne, the new independent record label has it’s heart set on fine company and fine music. Pawing away at these beliefs, the inspiration behind their pledge was pretty simple – our “golden friend, Dusty and music“. With a big goofy smile, Dusty is the four-legged pal that fronts the label and of course, is proud to share their first artist 808s and Greatest Hits.
A bedroom recording project from Melbourne, multi-instrumentals Skube Burnell has stepped out from his familiar frame to jump into the release of his debut album in 2014. Burnell’s latest release marks a special two track / 7″ vinyl release and features a killer dosage of down-tempo pseudo pop. Sharing ‘New Bounce’ and ‘House Of Love’, the two singles hear a feverish and gritty sonic soundscape, mixed by Stu MacKenzie (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard) and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Total Control). With a follow-up album on his heels, the singles are the perfect teaser for what’s to come.
