Featuring 28 unreleased tracks from experimental and underground Australian artists, New Weird Australia, Collapse Theories emerges at the tail-end of the two-year pandemic, and takes a precise psychic snapshot of the bridge between then and now.

As artists endeavour to once again lift their heads and lift their hearts, the compilation asks them to direct their energies (light or dark; focused or fucked) into a soundtrack of the now. The result is part victory parade, part riot – a cathartic burst, a riotous exclamation, a primal scream.

Available as a Name Your Price download / stream from Bandcamp.

All proceeds from this release will be donated to Bundjalung Community Flood Relief, providing direct financial support to Bundjalung Aboriginal communities affected by the devastating impacts of the March 2022 flood, the highest since colonial records began.

Featuring: Alexis Weaver, ALI WAN HILL, ALX; GoSlow, Aphir, Bacchus Harsh, Decadent Discord, Gillian Lever, Haunts, Horse Macgyver, jobfit, Kris Keogh, Lack The Low, Madenda, Megadead, Melanie Eden, Mookoid, Orbits, Puscha, Reuben Ingall, screensaver, Scraps, Silonics, Sudden Debt, The Omega Point, Travis Cook, Universal Cruelty, WPH and Zacharias Szumer
