Milk! Records is a Melbourne based independent label, who are about to put out a new 10″ compilation album of newly recorded songs, from artists on its ever expanding roster. The money for the compilation was raised through a crowd funding project, an idea that was conjured up by those behind the scenes at Milk!, and amazingly they managed to reach – and since far surpass – their target of $5,000, in just one day! You can still pledge towards the compilation until August 14th here.
All the songs were recorded over a weekend in February of this year, and the artists involved; Courtney Barnett, The Finks, Jen Cloher, Fraser A. Gorman and Royston Vasie, all contributed a brand new track or b-side, for the label’s latest compilation. The album’s launch is being held in the Nortcote Social Club here in Melbourne on Sunday August 31st, but please note its an afternoon show, with doors opening at 1:30pm. Tickets for the launch are available here
Track listing is as follows: 1) The Finks – ‘Cottonmouth’ 2) Courtney Barnett – ‘Pickles From A Jar’ 3) Jen Cloher fest. Tim Rogers – ‘Stone Age Brain’ 4) Royston Vasie – ‘Two Fingers Telling You No’ 5) Fraser A. Gorman – ‘Sugarcane Motorcycle’
Have a listen to Courtney Barnett’s ‘Pickles From A Jar’ which is catchy little ode to a contradictory couple, who do at least share a passion for Christopher Walken!:
