Sort by: Date Artist
Anna Cordell - Tried So Hard     Folk 23/01/2020
Anna Cordell has always been a ‘maker’. From her youngest years spent singing and writing songs on her nylon string guitar, to the first stitches of her clothing design work
Anna Cordell returns with the third taste of her forthcoming record, Tried So Hard.

Circle Pit is the seminal experimental glam/scum rock and roll project of Angela Bermuda & Jack Mannix, formed in Sydney in 2007.
While touring the states in 2010 to promote their debut LP 'Bruise Constellation', Circle Pit recorded a downer-glam-boogie 4 song EP with Matt Whitehurst from Psychedelic Horseshit in Ohio called 'Wicked Wicked Time' - four songs spanning indecipherable blues, hair metal, downer country & southern fried boogie rock. First single 'Neon Idol' is a gnarly lo-fi hair metal/scum rock anthem.

New War - Bang On     Punk, Experimental 13/12/2019

California Girls is the recording project of Gus McGrath, who is set to release his sophomore LP (and first release on Dero Arcade) Beat Boy on March 3 2020.
New single Small Birds is a dance-floor-ready track about demanding to be cared for. It captures the frantic energy of California Girls' live shows, once described as “Coil but gabber”. The song’s repeated vocal sample and deep bass work to disorient listeners, throwing them into the chaos of sex, loneliness, and wanting to be wanted.

Anna Cordell - Nobody Knows Us     Folk 06/11/2019
Anna Cordell has always been a ‘maker’. From her childhood writing on guitar, to the stitches of her design work, and into motherhood, Cordell has a natural flair for creation.
‘Nobody Knows Us’ explores the space within us that is separate to the wider world, the internal resources that no external factor controls and the freedom that comes with that. Following time that saw Anna through the grief of lamenting a loved one, as well as the energy of new life, this record grapples with ideas of meaning and purpose.

Frontman Brad Ellis was inspired to write the track after a close friend confided in him about the ins and outs of another overwhelmingly average day at work.
