On the back of Mike Rule's new drum video we completed filming of Brendan Mann's new music video for his upcoming release "Squishy Bender". Also sneaking in amongst the other releases was a CGI sequenced short film called "Aeons" and released as a pair with the new Bottlebrush song "A Question Of Belief" and a cheeky little bonus track before the year's end called "Monokey".

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from the AR team.
Another HUGE renovation has been completed here at our studios! To celebrate and test out our new recording space we put together a drum video featuring resident sound engineer and drum kit maestro Mike Rule.
From Perth death metal band Khariot's classic debut album "Disymposium" Mike performs the track "Crimson Sanctorum."
A visceral headbanger, with some insane technique and speed on drums driving the edgy flow of ominous guitars and snap neck breakdowns.
Check out the results of this project here or on YouTube.
If you'd like to use this space or our services to create your own video or audio project please do not hesitate to contact us via the "BOOK HERE" button above.
Last year song writer, instrumentalist and producer "Bottlebrush" released his debut EP "Particles" showing off how electronic music can be put on display with traditional and acoustic settings exploring fusion in some of it's less established areas. While nominations close on the APRA Professional Development Awards the new songs just keep coming!
Bottlebrush Has been back at it with bass guitarist and song writer Brendan Manns generating a cinematic and energetic fusion of instruments and synthesis in their new piece "Forward Thinking".
This month has seen the release of another HUGE single by Audible Flora. The second single from their album set for release in 2017 shows off a new energy and song writing style that demonstrates some of the best our studio has to offer. We highly recommend you check it out!
-Stronghold In The Sky
"This song draws influence from retro video games, modern big bands and electronic music. It conjures a sense of adventure and exploration aiming to take the listener on a journey of nostalgia and wonder."
The last few months of the year always get very busy over in our neck of the woods. We finished it off strong with the launch of HUSSY's second EP "Lights Out Diana".
On the back of a busy year of gigs this music shines through as possibly their best to date! Get on over to Bandcamp or Spotify and check it out!
Audible Flora have also began to show signs of activity before their coming 2017 album releasing a music video for their new song "Endless Painting". Psychedelic Rock meets Jazz in this energetic fusion of sounds and eclectic song writing! Head on over to YouTube or stream the video direct here.
On top of all this Perth bass player Brendan Manns has been making use of the studios recording his debut EP. The project is yet to be titled but a short teaser video of "The Squishy Bender can be found HERE.
The year is fresh and it's time to do it all again!
Keep posted & HAPPY NEW YEAR from the team @ AR
This month we have been back working with local punk rockers HUSSY. Recording their new album scheduled for release late this year. The girls have taken on a new drummer and they are sporting a reinvigorated energy and sound that is set to hit you right in the guts!
Also while "Particles" builds traction in the indie music scene reviewers No More Division had nothing but positive words for the release in their online post by J Simpson:
"Bottlebrush is the solo project of studio/label owner Cory Jackman. Jackman runs a label out of Perth called Anthrophobic Records, and Particles is a guided tour through what his studio is capable of. It must be a seven-figure affair, as the synths, drums and guitars of the largely instrumental LP shimmer and shine like liquid metal, over the span of Particles' six tracks. Almost all of Particles lingers in the electronic realm, only pausing for the dreamy, guitar-centric post-rock exploration of “Smoke," which still bristles with electronics in the wings, glittering like the Aurora Borealis. It may be a technical exercise, but there's still plenty of heart and heat beneath the silken guitar textures."

We had a huge 2015 with two great Perth bands releasing their first ever EPs! We kicked things off in March with all-girl, five-piece HUSSY for their debut EP Where We Came Frum. The EP took two months of recording and mixing to come to life, and you can hear the whole thing right here.
In August, alternative rock band Echo Drive started recording their debut EP Elements. Echo Drive's genre demanded the use of one of our most coveted pieces of equipment: Fractal Audio's Axe FX. Discover their eclectic sound over here.
In-between recording debut EPs over the year, we had the awesome opportunity to work with Strawberry Hills Records from Sydney who sent over Perth-based hip-hop artist Zinga J for a day of recording vocals. You can listen to the finished track here.
Meanwhile our recording studio is still undergoing a transformation while we continue to record bands and release new music! Keep an ear out for more releases from Anthophobic Records in 2016!
