Aussie Sounds: The Lost Domain

posted Friday Jun 27th, 2014

Our next installment in the Aussie Sounds series, devised to occupy your brain with the sublime and rejuvenating noise emanating from the cup runneth over that is the underground Australian scene, comes from Brisbane audio heathens The Lost Domain, who have been kicking up the digital dust for quite some time now, with releases dating back to the early 2000's on various formats. Featuring drummer Ian Wadley from notable underground act, Bird Blobs, The Lost Domain exist in a parallax view of a textured sound landscape, barbed with jagged waves of feedback and vertigo, a major reason for their inclusion in Noise in My Head: Voices from the Ugly Australian Underground written by Jimi Kritzler (Slug Guts/White Hex) which has been released in Australia and coming soon to the US/Europe via HoZac Books next month.

With their unrepentant nihilism wrapping itself around each jarring note, their severe and antagonistic sound is well represented on the LPs An Unnatural Act and Blondes Chew More Gum on Negative Guest List Records, it's high time you took the plunge into unknown waters.
