Two of Brisbane’s finest, Sandra Selig and Leighton Craig, are back with a reissue of Primitive Motion’s 2019 limited CDr, this time on cassette. This release seems to be in line with their similarly timed collab with Anthony Burr: considered and meditative musical interventions over lush field recordings.

This tape sees to pair step into a folkier, hi(er)-fi territory but still maintains their intriguing explorations of outsider experimentalism or even New Age music (but without the connotations of bare feet and bad incense burning). There’s something here that’s hard to pin down, a kind of music that’s not New Age escapist, but localised (perhaps even suburban in the Australian sense where a house could back onto a national park or bushland area). I don’t know if that’s exactly what I mean, but more concretely it’s something I also hear in Francis Plagne, Snake (& Friends), and Derek Baron.
