Sleeve Notes.

We are living in a liminal point in time; rummaging through the detritus of an aberrant year, with no real sense of what comes next. It’s unsettling and fucked up and unreal. Looking for resolution feels pointless; we’re flanked by the feeling that this moment is perpetual. Nowhere is everywhere, everywhen is now. 

This album collects twenty-eight explorations of this idea. All of the work is new and unreleased, created in and around this splinter in time. Responses range from the anxious to the audacious, the tumultuous to the transcendental. All propositions are valid.

Experienced in one-sitting, it’s a work that moves through four parts: quiet, loud, broken and fixed.  Music of inquiry, of anger, of loss, of promise – and the space between all such things.

NWA019 was compiled on the sacred land of the Darug People. We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians of the lands on which we work and pay our respects to Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging. Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land.
