Three new EPs from Australia's Clan Analogue

Clan Analogue release three new EPs of electronic agitation.

In 2012 Australian electronic music collective Clan Analogue celebrated its 20th birthday with the Headspace Severed Heads tribute compilation. Now a new selection of Clan Analogue artists have emerged from their underground bedroom studios to release three new EPsof electronic agitation vibrating into the sonic void.

From noir electro-cabaret to abstract post-IDM synthesis to psychedelic two-step space funk, this selection of releases continues Clan Analogue=92s quest to expose new tones to the harsh environment of the modern audio landscape.

Aeriae: Nurse 2 Alyssa Type

*Aeriae is a Sydney-based practitioner of abstract electronics, here paving the way for his forthcoming album Victris with Nurse 2 Alyssa Type, a dark techno cut of cascading textures, intersecting synth lines and precisely calibrated sonics. The EP includes a genre-tripping set of remixes, distilling elements of the original into its primordial essences, from pure ambience to syncopated chaos. Look out for Victris later this year on Clan Analogue.

Actual Russian Brides: Wife Beats *

Actual Russian Brides have a diverse and quixotic creative output, layering dense lyrical excursions onto electronica extracted from old and new synthesizers and drum machines. Having relocated their studio recently from Berlin to Sydney, the new EP Wife Beats is the duo at their most ironic and darkly witty: highly danceable tracks expertly fused with seductive storytelling.

Tiatto: Full Moon

Tiatto formed in a chance encounter between Melbournite Ben Wah and Mancunian Max Devere in a Brixton garrett opposite a crackhouse. Relocating to Melbourne they enlisted master synthesist Nick Fakeman and Canadian conceptual svengali Ganz Enfarben for extra musical credibility and will to power. So what is Full Moon? Miles Davis jamming with Squarepusher or The KLF meets Hawkwind might get you half way there. Perhaps its an elegy for UK breaks before dubstep or a journey through the night from insanity to redemption. Hear the Winduptoys remix for extra abstraction.

EPs are available from Bandcamp and iTunes

What did you (or do you) want to be when you grow up?

Builder or architect.

How many siblings do you have and what is your birth order (oldest, middle child, youngest, only child)?

I am the middle chile of three.

Are you doing what you love with your life? Why or Why not?

Yes. It seems the sensible option.

I like creating things. I like to do it alone and with others.

Describe an important place to you. Include things like what season or time of day it is. Also let us know of any important smells or colours you associate with that place.

Innisfail, North Queensland in the winter, anytime. Cow poo and very green grass. What three things do you 'feel you need' to carry with you (other than your phone, wallet or keys)?

Wallet and keys are all I carry. I often forget my phone.

What fictional character do you most identify with and why?

I cant recall his name but he was a perpetual student (who lived off an inheritance that would end when he graduated). I admired his broad general knowledge and his laziness. He had many unfinished degrees.

Recently I reread The Virgin Suicides and watched Zoolander again.

Describe something you wear that makes you feel confident, happy or powerful.

I am not often aware of what I am wearing. Even after checking in the mirror I forget.

Is it right to critise a game when you have just painted yourself into a corner playing it without reference to online walkthroughs?

Well I am in that corner now and I dont want to replay a big chunk of the game.

Ever since I cheated my way through Zelda's Ocarina of Time I really dont want to do it with any new game.

Whats wrong with Skyrim?

Its the same as Oblivion. It even has the same old bugs.

I posted the above many weeks ago and now I should take it back. The only real bug is the inventory one. (The catagory must have focus from the mouse wheel, it may not work if it is only highlighted by the hover)

Skyrim is not the same as Oblivion. All the new stuff (dragons and shouts) is very good.

Is there a javascipt MVC library where the business logic is not in the js for all to see?

Adobe should host ColdFusion code examples with access to Performance Monitoring.

Adobe should host ColdFusion code examples with access to Performance Monitoring.

The apps could be very small but that should be highly available and very scalable.

One app should be an all javascript front-end and ColdFusion webservices on the server side.

There should be some good load testing examples that users can run while they observe the Performance Monitoring and garbage collecting.

If Charlie Arehart says this is already availble I will puke.

How well do you know your host?

Working at a small university changed my code because the university hosted its own sites.

I knew just enough about the hardware setup to see where problems might occur for me and started adding 'just-in-case' code.

Then I read a ColdFusion book that suggested using a simple database query wrapped in a cftry/cfcatch tag just to see if the database connection was up and running.

I laughed because I thought I invented that. My code used a cfmail tag to emailed me so I could go and nag the database guys.
