ARTISTS:

New Weird Australia is seeking expressions of interest from Australian musicians and audio artists actively pursuing an agenda of experimentation and innovation in any form or genre.  Email music@newweirdaustralia.com if you are interested in featuring your music on a forthcoming release or on our podcast show – please provide links to your music for review (please supply download links such that we can review offline, no links for streaming files / media players) or send us material via Soundcloud. You can also post material to New Weird Australia, PO Box 67, Strawberry Hills, NSW 2012.

Due to the volume of submissions we receive, it’s not always possible to reply to each submission individually. We will be in touch if we’re interested in licencing the submission for a future release. Be assured that we do listen to every piece of music submitted, and such submissions are regularly played on our podcast show. You can find the archive of podcast playlists on our podcast page.

DESIGNERS:

New Weird Australia is also seeking expressions of interest from graphic designers, visual artists, photographers and others working within the visual medium to develop cover art for each volume in the series.  Please email info@newweirdaustralia.com if you are interested in featuring your work on a forthcoming release, with relevant links.

FEES & PROMOTION:

New Weird Australia is developed on a strictly not for profit basis to promote new Australian works.  Compilations are distributed via this web site free of charge, and no financial arrangements for inclusion will be entered into.  All works remain copyright of the artists.
