Sleeve Notes: April 2010

Three FBi radio shows, New Weird Australia, Unputdownable & Sunday Night At The Movies, came together in November 2009 at the Red Rattler in Sydney to present ‘Unpopular Music’ – a benefit to support their station. They pooled their collective networks and gathered twelve of Sydney’s innovative, experimental artists – all of whom donated their time, with all proceeds going directly to FBi, helping to ensure the ongoing survival of Sydney’s home of new music.

‘Unpopular Music 2009, A Benefit Album For FBi Radio’ collects seven exclusive tracks, recorded live at ‘Unpopular Music 2009′. The album includes music from:

– PIMMON, an artist that has forged an international reputation for creating dense, challenging and engaging electronic music
– MANDALA TRAP, a new collaborative project between PIMMON and JEFF BURCH, solo artist and one quarter of Sydney band, SONGS
– kyü, an experimental pop outfit, building a reputation for their original and innovative sound
– ANON, aka noise artist, musician and label manager Anna Vo
– SCISSOR LOCK, an experimental project from musician Marcus Whale
– ANNA CHASE, a multi instrumentalist and vocalist who weaves melodies into familiar yet dreamy pop constructions.
– sound artist, musician and chronic circuit bender NICK WISHART – long-standing member of Toydeath
