False Peak records


Summer solstice passed us by just the other day and now the days get shorter as winter comes to the antipodean headquarters of Backseat Mafia. Although, it has to be said, in the southern outpost of Hobart, winter never actually left. With all the changes and the mutability of the seasons as an analogy for …

We are trembling with excitement to premiere today the single ‘Sentimental Health’ from Hobart/nipaluna instrumental band follow, as they announce their signing to that shining beacon of impeccable taste, False Peak Records. I incessantly bang on about the brilliant stream of artists flowing from the tiny island at the edge of the world. Tasmania – …

Key Out for me are one of the unsung heroes of the indie music scene in Australia and indeed the world. Newly signed to the magnificent False Peak Records, they have burst back in to our lives with the magnificent ‘afterville’, a follow up to 2020’s ‘anthropomorphia’ (described by me as ‘stunning’ and ranked in …

We are immobilised with excitement at being able to bring you an exclusive listen to the new single from Sydney’s magnificent Key Out: one of the most exciting outfits in the antipodean scene at the moment. ‘Drive’ has that indefinable Key Out sound: mesmerising shimmering folds of instrumentation that daub brushstrokes from a colourful multi-layered …

The self-described sludge pop of the music of Meanjin/Brisbane trio Terra Pines is an apt capture of the sweet dichotomy between the fuzzy barbed-wire instruments of the band and the rich melodic vocal delivery. This is an album filled to the brim with tight, layered harmonies and cinematic widescreen expanses delivered over an emphatic thump …

Brisbane’s Terra Pines‘ ‘Indoor Kid’ is a sonic wall of brilliance: a track that hammers and claws its way into your head and takes permanent residence, lounging around with waft of psychedelic substances in the air. We are overjoyed to premiere this piece of aural adrenalin here at Backseat Mafia. Clocking in to the consciousness …

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. Over the past 11 days we have already seen releases …
