Conceived whilst wandering through the iron bark forests and gold fields of country Victoria the official debut by Melbourne’s Hour House gifts a musical blueprint marinated in mystery, beauty, sound and song. Hour House is the Melbourne based duo of Mark Leacy and Sam Kenna, formerly of the Newcastle based outfit Castings. Penultimate Press is proud to release their official debut LP Chiltern. Comprised of individual tracks folded into two side long suites Chiltern is an unique excursion through foreign encounters, warm surrounds and disorientating comfort. Field recordings, electronics, samples, guitars, voice and atmospherics all contribute to form a bewitching whole.

Vitrine soldiers onward into 2015 with Armchair Electronics, the next release from No Intention. The aesthetic follow-up to 2013’s Debris Music, Armchair Electronics offers two side-long forays into tape redundancy, vocal collusion and bedside non-music. This cassette finds the project disengaging from the conceit of craft to focus on pugilistic sound poetry and dilettante field recording.
