Over the past 20+ years Leighton Craig has followed a low-tech/econo pathway to documenting keyboard works, songs, field recording and sound installation. He has also played in a clutch of key Brisbane outsider combos, including free-rock misfits The Lost Domain, pop miniaturists The Deadnotes and the dream tank duo Primitive Motion.

Following a handful of solo releases on the Room 40 label and his own Kindling imprint, “Diamond Eye” represents Craig’s defining solo statement. Recorded at home and on beach holidays between 2006 and 2010, Diamond Eye is a personal sketchbook of fuzzy hymnals and haunting songs. At times its wistful melodies and decaying loops play like the soundtrack to imagined home movies; elsewhere amplified cymbal and endless-cassette achieve a blurry time-freeze. Mastered for maximum purr by Lawrence English, the chocolatey keyboard tones of this record will warm your speakers.

    Wonderfuls – Only Shadows Now

    Only shadows Now - Robert delivers 10 confessionals that drift around tragedies, hopelessness, failed systems, nonconformity and physical/psychological experiences. Set to the minimalist sparse compositions of Dan McGirr (guitar) and Natasha Buchanan (synth, voice) whose guitar and synthesizer lines entwine around the bleak lyrics and help paint Robert's world of despair and loneliness. Only more downer, time hasn't healed the wounds, they've only become deeper.Add to cart

  • The Frightening Lights

    Soft, caressing and subtly disturbing, Frightening Lights’ songs move like menace through fog. Singer Elizabeth Downey says she first envisioned the songs as a kind of deathbed confession, their violence is carefully suppressed, modulated perhaps through long penitence. Shreds of instrumental sound – a funeral organ, an offkilter accordion, discordant bowing on a borrowed danbo – flit in and out of the peripheries, creating eerie, flickery landscapes around Downey’s sleepy murmurs. "It’s a strong mix of a contemporary sound offset in traces of the avant-garde, and though the comparisons to Mazzy Star and Opal are strong, they don’t detract from what this duo has to offer."
