“Dinosaur City Records have been quietly releasing some of Australia’s best indie rock, from Cody Munro Moore’s weirdo new wave fantasy Perfume Nightmare to curios like Phanosland’s For The Lovers EP and this year’s excellent Spike Vincent record. – Noisey
“Dinosaur City is shining the spotlight on some of the city’s best, most exciting rock, electro, pop (and everything in between) bands playing right now.– Tone Deaf
“Propelled by endless creative momentum, Dinosaur City Records are leading the charge for a deeply exciting local scene in Sydney.– Happy
“[Dinosaur City Records] has been flying the flag for alternative artists since their humble inception, and have built a reputation as the outfit with their finger on the pulse of Sydney’s music scene.” – Life Without Andy
Dinosaur City Records is excited to announce the release of our third annual mixtape, premiering right now via Noisey.A 23-track compilation of mostly unreleased tracks, it’s a celebration of independent music from Sydney and beyond.
Highlights include low-fi gems of Body Type’s Sophie (Tuffence Meringue) and Annabelle (Solo Career), post-punk numbers from Nasho and Hugh M. Hominid, an indie-pop hit from Boat Show’s Ali Flintoff (Denise Le Menice) several synthy tracks fromGreenwave Beth, FRANK, Mezko and Bourgeoise Earth,plus tracks from a couple of bands we discovered during our recent trip to the states for SXSW, including latest DCR signees, Navy Gangs. (Speaking of, our friends at Burger Records have teamed up with us to release the compilation in the USA)!
“The tape moves from abstract, icy coldwave to fiery hardcore punk and touching on everything in-between––but, somehow, unified; it feels analogous to other wonderful, stylistically disparate compilations like Efficient Space’s 2016 compilation Sky Girl or Flying Nun’s Greatest Bits album from a few years back.” Says Noisey editor, Shaad D’Souza of the release.
Following last week’s release of opening track ‘Addiction’, which was premiered by Declan Byrne on triple j, the compilation, in full, is out digitally and on cassette today.
