Various Artists Strewth!
- Words: Susanna Bolle
- Label: Synaesthesia
In the past few years, there has been a slew of excellent electronic music releases from Australian and New Zealand artists, such as Oren Ambarchi, Cray, Philip Samatzis and Rosy Parlane, to name but a few. Strewth! provides further evidence of the wealth of musical innovation occurring Down Under. Contributors include not only the relatively well-known musicians mentioned above, but also lesser-known artists with names like Delire, Zy'zx, Zonk and Squinch. The artists' music is as singular as their pseudonyms: the compilation verily roils with buzzing, insectine electronics from the outset before settling down with a series of delicate, minimal tracks by Ambarchi, Mike Thomas and Dion Workman (the latter of Sigma Editions and Thela fame). Ace.
