SC co-founder and legendary dude, Matt Faisandier (The Convoy/Akaname/Ornithologist), has officially launched an incredible studio/rehearsal space on the site of an old mushroom farm in North Coburg, Melbourne! It goes by the name, Magnet.

Seriously, that means you can pay whatever you like to mess around in a nice room with a P.A!! So if you’re in need of a space in Melbourne, don’t wait > BOOK ONLINE HERE!

SETH FRIGHTENING LIVE ON RNZ + ‘BWLOBAS’ REVIEWED

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Seth Frightening on RNZ

Seth Frightening, aka Sean Kelly, played a few live tracks from his new album, But We Love Our Brothers and Sisters, and spoke with Radio New Zealand Music 101‘s Zac Arnold last weekend.

Check out the great live recordings and an interview covering the usual topics: blood, death, chaos, the saviouristic properties of the acoustic guitar and the coolness of kindness, etc: www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/nat-music/audio/20173477/seth-frightening-in-session

Click here to stream & download the album which has received some glowing reviews such as this one on Vanguard Red Magazine: “…positively overflowing with beautifully surreal and exploratory New Weird New Zealand folk rock compositions. With his guitar playing, vocal delivery and overall arrangements, Seth has that “it” quality that only matters because we hear it so rarely.”

ALTMUSIC PRESENTS: MATMOS IN NZ

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Matmos NZ Tour poster

“Altmusic is excited to announce our first national tour of NZ for 2014 – avant-electronic superstars Matmos (US)!

Hugely influential electronic duo Matmos (Drew Daniel and M.C. Shmidt) will be performing for the first time ever in New Zealand, bringing their signature blend of mutant electronica and audio/visual extravagance to audiences around the country! Known as much for their visually dazzling live performances as for their MENSA-level conceptual backflips, Matmos hits the sweet spot between super-fun and finely-honed, beat-driven dance/psychedelia. With surgical precision, Matmos assemble intricate soundworlds from the most unlikely of sources including amplified crayfish nerve tissue, the pages of bibles turning, rat cages, human skulls, a cow uterus and much more – turning these samples on their head to create eminently danceable and conceptually mesmerizing sonic voyages!”

“(Matmos) is well-known for nestling their own raunchy universe of found sounds into glitched-out disco-bounce, and, some say, saving musique concréte from the dustbin of electronic music history.” – Pitchfork



Tickets $20 from > UTR

ALL SEEING HAND/ SETH FRIGHTENING TOUR: DAYS 11/12

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

We’re off up North again this weekend (ALL SEEING HAND ALBUM RELEASE TOUR > Hamilton & Auckland!!) so I thought I better put up some pics from our last roadtrip in May this year…


Sean in Putaruru


All Seeing Hand at Golden Dawn


This is Kerosene Creek, a thermal stream & hot pools 35km south of Rotorua. We had a joyous time singing under the waterfalls and decorating Jonny’s head with stones – later I found out that a friend got really, really sick after dunking her head in this creek… luck of the draw I guess! Caution advised.

RADICAL SPIRIT THIS SUNDAY!

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Excited about this one!!!!!

“Saint Mary of the Angels presents a very special concert of exploratory and contemporary music inspired by radical traditions in music and spirituality, featuring a diverse programme of music from traditional (Gregorian chant, medieval polyphony, taonga puoro, throat singing) to contemporary (noise, drone, contemporary composition, improvisation and video art).

A wide ranging group of musicians will present their musical visions in the beautiful setting of Saint Mary of the Angels Church. The church has a long tradition of fine classical and sacred music, including gorgeous sung masses with Renaissance polyphony and Gregorian chant, but this is the first time that exploratory or experimental music has been presented in the church. It will be a further stage in a long history of excellent music presented by the church that has included in recent times the New Zealand String Quartet, Stroma, and Indian classical concerts, but dates back to 1843.”
