Lachlan has spent a lot of hours on this project this year. He really wanted to draw attention to some of the country's awesome fuzzy, droney, drug-addled groups, that perhaps don't get the attention they deserve - especially outside of Australia - because the reality is we can boast some of the most unique and varied slow music of any country.
Drone From The Underside Of The Earth Front Cover
So Lachlan set off with intent to pull together some of his favourite artists in Australia's stoner, sludge, doom and drone scenes in order to get more people to discover great Australian underground music. But he was a little naive of quite how long it would take him!
The hard work paid off in the end. Drone form the Underside of the Earth
features a selection of 26 tracks. This is a rare, eye-opening peek into Australia's rich underground music scene. At 3-and-a-half hours in length it's quite a ride, but we sincerely hope that you at least discover a few new bands as a result of this work.
Drone from the Underside of the Earth
is a FREE digital compilation featuring Australia's best stoner, sludge, doom and drone bands, featuring: Space Bong, Hydromedusa, Adrift for Days, Looking Glass, In Trenches, No Anchor, Drowing Horse, Sons of the Ionian Sea, Summonus, DEAD, Futility, Clagg, Mother Eel, Log, Battle Pope, Law Of The Tongue, Arrowhead, Moth, Shellfin, Futility, Sore, Noûs, Atolah, The Slow Death, Mother Mars, Lint and Houdini
