David Chesworth Ensemble - Music To See Through - WMINCD034 - $29.99

Music To See Through

Music To See Through, David Chesworth Ensemble's first full blown release since Badlands is coupled with a bonus disc bound to trouble spell checkers around the world titled Disk Of Idioms. MTST features David Chesworth Ensemble interpreting 14 new pieces of Chesworthian brilliance. They're fine tunes but more than that they're wonderful songs, as evidenced by the stellar vocal performances of the ARIA award winning Lisa Miller and Robert Forster of the Go-Betweens on a track each. Disk Of Idioms showcases the more experimental side of Chesworth and is more closely aligned to his soundscape work, but is no less fascinating and listenable for that.

David Chesworth - 50 Synthesizer Greats - WMINCD033 - $29.99

50 Synthesizer Greats

50 Synthesizer Greats is a re-release of a record until now only available on vinyl (a copy recently sold for $150 on eBay). First unleashed in 1979 it was recorded by David in his parent's lounge room long before it became easy and fashionable to record at home. David bounced tracks using then cutting edge home technology (Korg's very first synthesizer, the Korg 700 and an Akai 400DS reel to reel tape recorder with primitive multi track facility) to create something that is as endurable as the bakelite hifi knobs he manufactured in his day job at the time. Featuring art work by Philip Brophy and Maria Kosic (based on a new hi-tech computer technique then available at Myers by which you were able to get a portrait of yourself rendered in typewritten letters) this is not only a true collectors item, but also a vibrant collection of tunes that still sound great 25 years after being recorded.

Various Artists - Melbourne Water 2 - WMINCD035 - $25.00

Melbourne Water 2

Melbourne Water is the brainchild of David Nichols and Greg Wadley two people who have played various musician/journalist/label proprietor/advocate roles in the music scene in Brisbane, Sydeny and Melbourne through the years. This, the second volume, contains tracks from 24 contributers, none of whom contributed to Volume 1. The range of music is broad - touching on abstract/noise acts, straight ahead rock, laidback, electronic, even whistful pop and other sounds and styles. It serves as strong evidence of the bold claim that Melbourne really is one of the indie music capitals of the world.
