Split Singles Launch Party
Thursday 8th of February – Free & All Ages
Last year, Milk! Records and Bedroom Suck Records joined forces with the simple aim of bringing together and documenting the community of musicians & creativity that surrounds them every day. They founded Split Singles Club, a vinyl subscription service that delivers six double-sided 7" singles to your door – one side curated by Milk!, one side curated by Bedroom Suck. As well as featuring artists from each label's family of bands, Split Singles Club also aimed to shine a light on some newer, upcoming bands from Australia's thriving underground.
We are excited to announce that in 2018, Milk! and Bedroom Suck are passing the torch to fellow Melbourne-based labels and friends Poison City Records and Our Golden Friend to curate Split Singles Club Series Two. And in what will come as no surprise, they have selected an exceptional list of artists.
The 2018 edition of Split Singles Club will feature previously unreleased songs from Poison City artistsMere Women, Harmony, Bench Press and MOD CON, Our Golden Friend artists RVG and 808s & Greatest Hits, plus tracks from bands that they love – Stella Donnelly, Moody Beaches, Elizabeth (Totally Mild), Michael Beach, Way Dynamic and Bitch Diesel. Each artist will feature once across the six 7" singles, delivered to your door over the course of three months. All cover artwork is a series of original collages by renowned artist Stephen Tierney.
Series Two Subscriptions are now open and are strictly limited. Sign up here
