sore horse presents: freezer w/ doris/naaki soul/wwlbayalyf @ old bar

photos by Valentine <3 <3 <3

This weekend saw freezer, followed by doris and Naaki Soul, return to Narrm for freezer's Winter tour. freezer hail from Canberra, and doris Sydney, who drove down from NSW. Naaki Soul flying in from Brisbane, QLD. We've met a lot of friends we hold dear at Old Bar throughout the years, the squishy smoking area, intimate band room and tight bar make for a memorable show that's a perfect home to our favourite emo-adjacent bands. This night was no exception. I unfortunately missed a lot of this gig ( playing something around the corner that was seemingly much less fun ).
The fact alone that these bands will follow one another such extreme distances to play venues like this, really speaks wonders to the devotion they have towards the music. I could continue to pander and talk about emo revival, their commitment to engaging the crowd, etc. etc.. - though,,

freezer are still on tour, and you can easily see them on their NSW leg this weekend with doris, before they trek it all the way up to Brisbane to reunite with Naaki Soul. To be a part of it you have to be a part of it...

Swapmeet - Oxalis

Swapmeet - Oxalis

Swapmeet truly swept me up a little when I heard their single, and continue to be one of my favourite bands in Australia right now. An earnest, energetic live show and a dedicated attitude towards music makes this record all the more listenable. Their tastes are worn on their sleeves and so is their love for the band.
I'm super duper proud to have this one on within the group, they encapsulate what I love about Sore Horse, so you should make sure you get familiar with this release.

Freezer X Doris split CD

I'll be honest, I'm a little late with the orders for this one. Sore Horse Music Community HQ moved recently, and then my desktop computer was rained on. Though after a couple setbacks, I'm super proud to announce this. Including two new singles from each band! 'Cutter' is one for the real heads, a deep cut from Liam's old solo project She Died In The Air Above Me reupped in everybody's favourite classic FREEZER style. 'Bookshop' combines the sound of Doris' first, more indie leaning release, with their more recent obsessive delve into the ever popular Skramz explosion present across their live set - a tease into their upcoming EP release. Both songs are excellent and I'm proud to be involved.
THIS CD WILL INCLUDE B-sides / REMIXES / Sore Horse versions not present on any other releases.... how nice.

There are only 10 (TEN) of these online, only the real heads will get these >>here... XOXOXOXoooo<<

Freezer Spider Tee Freezer Spiders CD

freezer merch drop

Couple new things for ol' Sore Horse today. Check out our first CDs and T-Shirts ;D
The likelihood of me getting any fresh tape blanks in for releases in Australia was looking more and more slim, especially while we are still in the midst of COVID affecting shipping in different parts of the world - and I ain't slowing down! To celebrate I've got pre-orders up for the first run of merch and CDs we're doing :-))!

'...i do my part by not killing spiders' seemed to be your pick of '23 and i really don't blame you.

These CDs are home-made, printed, burned and loved. From my home to yours.

SORE HORSE MERCH will set you aside from other haters and posers in this here music scene, start your SHR CD collection and grab the drip ... >> HERE <<


geography - save the world

Geography joins the Sore Horse Community Roster with a really great double single. Georgia's project came to me as affiliation of the band Armlock, where her vocal harmonies always stood out. So, to have her singing on her own project is something special, and something to look forward to amongst lofi-indie happenings in Narrm over 2024. These first two tracks are incredible and I'm excited to have the cassingles dubbed and ready to post out.
Grab one of them on the store, here!


sore horse presents: gsale/obscura hail/twine/doris/00_

This was the first real event I've put on since the old Lennox Head DIY days. I think I had my tail in-between my legs for the longest time while I built up the confidence that people would actually want to come out to local emo shows again. The spot packed out pretty quickly, though having wrangled such a solid line up I wasn’t entirely surprised, D'shut feels nice and cosey, nice and homely - especially with the Melbourne rain starting to come down outside. All the bands were awesome, everybody played stupid good sets, and between the ebb and flow of people leaving for smokes or pushing inside to participate in the “softcore pit” - vibes were high. I indulged in 1 glass of wine per band, and with 4 bands to watch, it meant things flew by a little quick.
It was nice to hang out at the merch desk, I stopped and tried to chat with everyone that came through over the start of the night, though my efforts were stunted by the room filling out more and more, also by the wine. I admit (although I love it) I’m not the best with big crowds. I snuck home after we played the last set because I was feeling a bit overwhelmed, spotted only by Doris' drummer, Charlie, who gave a quick nod to my quicker french exit.

I can’t help but be super proud of this one. Shout outs to everyone who showed up and hung out, to the venue and to friends old and new. I'll definitely be around until the early hours for the next one - and we'll see you there! :)

garage sale - blank again

For those who don't know, Dan and I (Benji) who work on the label, play in G-Sale. We played a pretty crazy amount of shows this year and to mark the a sort of transition period for the band, from not knowing what we were doing, to having slightly more idea. Blank Again is a cool song, and the last track we recorded with our homie Marci on drums. <3
Listen to 'Blank Again' now :-)


teethe - self titled

Teethe self-titled re-issue tapes are now selling through the webstore right now. This album is a favourite of mine, and really is one of the best slowcore albums - especially amongst the revival. Madeline has done some art for G-Sale, and her and Boone have always been big supporters of Sore Horse, so I'm really proud to be putting this out for the Australian heads.


bargain - promises

Bargain joins the SHR line up with the first single from a new release. Liam is crazy talented at what he does and everything that’s been put out under this moniker I’ve had on repeat over the past couple years.
Couldn’t be prouder to release this stuff , tape orders will go up once the songs are ready :-)
