False Peak records


Remy Boccalatte must be one of the busiest creatives and entrepreneurs around. Not only does he run the tasteful boutique False Peak Records in Brisbane (with a stunning roster of bands both local and international including The Apparitions, Graywave, The Yugoslav Attack, David Rylands, We Set Sail, Spring Skier and Overland Inn) but he also plays in a number of very impressive local …

The sounds of Brisbane project Grids/Units/Planes (GUP) are that of a cloudy, diffuse space that glitches and hums in a languorous rich texture: awe-inspiring and transfixing. I have always thought that the magic in effective instrumental music is the ability to tell stories and create images without words, and in ‘Diverge and Coalesce’, GUP have …

The liquidity of movement and sensual overload in French Czech-based duo Overland Inn‘s new album ‘Proxima’ is nothing short of magnificent. Heralded by a series of delectable amuse-bouches over the last 12 months following their signing to the brilliant Brisbane label False Peak Records, Overland Inn have perfected an electronic based dream pop oeuvre that has …

We are very honoured to premiere the new single ‘We Come Unseen’ from the mysterious Brisbane group Dänmark – a part of the luminescent False Peak Records stable which have been releasing all manner of tasty treats in the lead up to the big day tomorrow.

French duo Overland Inn, based in the Czech Republic, are building up anticipation for the release of their album ‘Proxima’, through Brisbane’s amazing False Peak Records, with the release of a brilliant and very clever animation video for the tack ‘Les Loups’. This is the fourth release since signing to False Peaks, and the quality …

Brisbane’s dreamy pop duo Spring Skier (Remy Boccalatte and Kane Mazlin) grace the pages of Backseat Mafia again with another stunning premiere, the gentle and reflective ‘Six Stings, Eight Legs’. A wry observation on the ministrations of a spider, Boccalatte’s voice has the sweetest edge, wrought with yearning and imbued with a sort of sadness …

After pleasantly assaulting us with their thumping track ‘Downbeat’ (see my review here) , Brisbane band Terra Pines have pressed ever so gently on the brakes and released the dreamy almost ambient shimmer of ‘Harp On’; a dream-popped sonic landscape with a hypnotic flow and gentle melodies. A muscular bass, shimmering guitars and ethereal keys …

Brisbane’s Terra Pines take no prisoners in their brutal aural assault of a track, ‘Downbeat’. This is a thunderous insistent fuzzy rumble that rolls forward with intensity and purpose. And yet underneath the fuzz and the rumble, the melodies are sweet and yearning, a delicious amalgam of shoegaze and dream pop that captivates while clearing …

As part of our irregular series on the important and often silent figures behind the music scenes – the record labels, promoters and managers – we are today having a chat with venerable Brisbane figure Remy Boccalatte of the shining star that is False Peak Records. We here at Backseat Mafia have covered many bands …
