The ‘New Weird Australia, Essential Tremors’ compilation celebrates a new three-day festival of outsider artists, curated by Angus Andrew (LIARS). Held at Phoenix Central Park in Sydney, ‘Essential Tremors’ features six distinct sessions of experimental music, sound art and ruthless noise that push into uncharted spaces

Featuring performances by Cindy Chen, Chunyin, Clare Cooper, Del Lumanta, ∑GG√E|N, Salllvage, Shoeb Ahmad, Wytchings and YL Hooi, ‘Essential Tremors’ is a bold celebration of artists whose work exists far from the well-travelled mainstream.

Available as a free download / stream from Bandcamp.
