Thanks - I thought that instead of trying to pre-empt peoples' tastes by highlighting any particular artists or songs, people could just download or listen away for themselves.

See also: the Brisbane-based Room 40 label, run by the indefatigable Lawrence English, one of the busiest and most dedicated organizers and presenters of avant garde music in Australia. He's a sound artist himself, ana a fine one at that.

Thanks very much, UbuRoivas! Weird indeed. But some interesting stuff in there.

Every Metafilter CD swap I've sent out has included tracks from their compilation CDs. One half of New Weird Australia is Danny Jumpertz - responsible for local label Feral Media, and also creates his own music under the name Alpen (vimeo link).

Hey, I've been to his house! (aka Feral Media Warehouse)

That's more "it's-a-small-world" than any serious self-linkyness, as it was just some kind of party or something, and I wouldn't recognise the guy if we passed in the street.
