Mildlife ‘Live from South Channel Island’ 2xLP
Pre-order. Due 29th April.
Australian multi-instrumentalist four-piece Mildlife announce ‘Live from South Channel Island’, released via Heavenly Recordings.
In early 2021, unable to play shows due to the pandemic, Mildlife travelled by boat to a long- abandoned 19th Century island fort to perform for fairy penguins and abalone poachers. The result is ‘Live from South Channel Island’, a 70 minute motion picture and live album where the band masterfully recreate the magic of their live shows, framed by the gorgeous Port Phillip Bay.
2020’s follow-up album ‘Automatic’ saw the band elevate with more disciplined, directional and arguably more danceable synergy. With tightly structured arrangements making way for melodic improvisation and ethereal vocals, Mildlife effortlessly glid between live performance and studio songwriting, like Kraftwerk and Herbie Hancock quarantined in Bob Moog’s Trumansburg workshop. Debuting Top 10 on the Australian charts, ‘Automatic’ snared a converted ARIA Award for Best Jazz Album.
