Bedroom Suck Present: Totally Terrible
w/ Totally Mild, Terrible Truths, Lower Plenty, Childsaint & Pillow Pro
Nearly one year on since the ‘Totally Terrible’ tour swept the UK & Europe, label mates Totally Mild and Terrible Truths re-unite to take the stage together in Melbourne. After both releasing their debut albums in 2015, these bands are again working head-to-head, currently involved in putting the finishing touches on two brand new records made earlier this year in Melbourne.
Joining the tour are another band who have recently emerged from a ramshackle home studio in Collingwood, where they were busy weaving together the fabric of yet another soft masterpiece, the enigmatic Lower Plenty. The band will showcase a variety of material from this new record, due for release later this year via Bedroom Suck.
We will also be joined by Perth’s sun-dreached melancholic Childsaint, on their first trip to the East Coast off the back of their new single, Hallelujah Heartache, as well as Melbourne favourites Pillow Pro with their new single Juice Hoops.
Sunday 26th June
UNTZZ / Label of Love
w/ Mic Mills & Furious Frank, Freddie Norwood & Arthur Miles, Babicka
Untzz Records start from what turned out to be a five-year-long weekly residency at the legendary Sugar Nightclub in Adelaide. All of the original artists on the label were also DJs, playing every Saturday night for five years.
After road testing original music week after week it became clear that we needed a platform to press the music to vinyl for keeps, and so the label was born. In three years the label has firmly established itself as a mainstay amongst the upper echelons of Australian club labels.
Even though originally started as an outlet for guilty pleasures and “not so serious” music, sister label Big D releases have flown off the shelves and seen comparisons to early pioneers of sample-based house music a’la Theo Parrish and Daft Punk thanks to heavy contributions from the pen names of FIO, MM, BD & LK to name a few.
Mic Mills & Furious Frank [Live] Freddie Norwood & Arthur Miles [Live] Babicka [Live] ++ MORE SPECIAL GUESTS AND INTERMISSION DJ’S TBA
Sunday 3rd July
Temporal Cast / Label of Love
w/ Cale Sexton, Kangaroo Skull, Jamal Amir & Chiara Kickdrum
Temporal Cast came into being out of an impulse to draw together what was, at the time, some disparate new talent emerging within Melbourne’s dance-music underground.
Since then, the acts which the label has been lucky enough to feature and support have grown into some of this city’s more sought-after names and the label itself has coalesced into something with more substance and momentum than what was ever anticipated.
This showcase features live sets from three Temporal Cast mainstays – Cale Sexton, Kangaroo Skull and Jamal Amir – as well the newest addition to the label: Chiara Kickdrum. Support before and between sets from X Axis.
