Someone Good is Room40's sister label, concerned with all things avant-pop. Tired of the familiar and paths more commonly trodden, Someone Good seeks out musicians interested in testing the edges of their given music. Curiously pulsating song forms, floating melodic jams, out of nowhere harmony and unexpected pleasure litter the labels releases from artists including Qua, NikaSaya (featuring the legendary Saya from Tenniscoats), Akira Kosemura, Aus, and the guest of this event Miko. Miko's Chandelier release is one of the label’s favourites - intricate rhythms made up from the most uncommon sources form the backbone of Miko's Folk-tronic sound. One of Tokyo's finest songwriters - playing with expectations of melody and form – she is truly unique and uncompromising.
Melbourne's bittersweet dream-poppers Oblako Lodka released their debut self-titled LP earlier this year through Special Award Records. They include members of The Motifs, ii, Milk Teddy and Hammocks and Honey, and have honourably shared stages with Richard In Your Mind (Syd), Ladybird (Fr), Geoffrey O'Connor, Psuche, The Ancients and Denim Owl amongst others – they are excited to play support to Miko
Like the Necks with a fuzz pedal', Battlesnake are a completely improvised rock three-piece who've never played the same piece twice, nor a single guitar solo to be found in their pieces. On the cusp of releasing their second album, produced by Casey Rice (Tortoise, Dirty Three), Battlesnake combine destructive playfulness and hip-shaking good times. They've played with Pivot, Qua, Super Melody, and a whole host of misfits.
Dark Decimals is a hybrid collaboration of current Zac Keiller vehicle, Dark Passenger and avant audio-visual trio infinite decimals. Having released a split cassette on Iceage Productions earlier this year, these two acts came together to perform a collaborative launch set as Dark Decimals. As this cassette nears selling out Iceage are making it available digitally. To celebrate Dark Decimals will reprise their launch set – get down early, don’t miss this unique audio-visual treated of textured sound and visuals.
