Compilations In Brief: The Key Of Sea, Western Schism, Boogie!, IO

– The first The Key of Sea compilation in 2010 paired well-known Australian musicians with migrant and refugee artists who have carried with them the musical culture of other countries. Collaborators included Sarah Blasko, Tim Rogers, Oh Mercy and The Vasco Era. A newly announced follow-up, The Key of Sea Vol. 2, boasts an equally impressive line-up, from Paul Kelly to Chet Faker to Kim Salmon. It’s out Oct. 19 via MGM. Tracklisting below.

‘Silence of the Guns’ - Jinja Safari and Kinfe Geshu
‘The Boat’ - Paul Kelly and The Cambodian Space Project
‘Az Eshq Tho’ - The Tiger and Me and Murtaza Jafari
‘Lively Boys’ - Lanie Lane and Adam Star
‘Fear Like You’ - Chet Faker and The Royal Swazi Spa
‘Come Along’ - Brous and Onur Ciftci
‘Islands’ - Clubfeet and Alex Toumazos
‘Open Hands’ - Sietta and Sunameke
‘Open Your Heart’ - Dick Diver and Benjamin Rambano
‘Client JGT683’ - Kim Salmon and Waleed Aly
‘Apuse’ - David Bridie and Hein Arumisore

Western Schism is the second in New Weird Australia’s “ad-hoc series of geo-specific compilations” and features 18 diverse Perth artists. The free collection was compiled by New Weird Australia’s Stuart Buchanan, who writes in the liner notes: “Each coast often exists in its own unique world, often oblivious to the actions of the other … Of course, that’s old school thinking – the digital age affords artists the ability to transcend such barriers, and this compilation plays one small part in an ongoing, flag-waving awareness exercise for Perth’s experimental music community.” Contributors include The Gulls, Jane Harris, Chris Cobilis (SMRTS), Mental Powers, Craig McElhinney and Perth Bands to Watch guru Predrag Delibasich.


– How’s this for a roll call? Cold Chisel, Daddy Cool, Skyhooks, Rose Tattoo, The Angels. That’s just scratching the surface of Boogie! Australia Blues, R&B and Heavy Rock From the ’70s, out Aug. 17 through Warner Music Australia. The 44-track 2CD set also packs The Masters Apprentices, The Dingoes, Wendy Saddington & The Copperwine, Madder Lake, The Sports, Max Merritt & The Meteors, Chain, Jo Jo Zep & The Falcons and Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, among others. It’s got liner notes from rock critic Jen Jewel Brown and cover art by Ian McCausland. It was compiled by David Laing, the man behind the Do The Pop!, and is the first release in years on Festival, which turns 60 this year.

– Described as “six LED-lit dance tracks … extending motifs of constant and rhythmic data flow into spacious, tactile worlds,” the new digital compilation IO showcases artists from the partially Melbourne-based Brothersister Records. It includes Kuala Lumpur’s Volcano Massage and Melbourne producers Erothug, Okey Szoke, Pompey and DEADV.

thanks for that update goldfoot, was just going to ask about that. It seems more interesting in detail than the summary provided, looks like they may have gone beyond just warners catalogue, which usually is the killer for these types of things.
