Mildlife - Phase
Vinyl LP



Research Records

Released: 23rd February 2018 | 6 track fusion album

Narrowing down Mildlife's style into a genre is almost impossible, as they bond over the desire to push musical boundaries. No strangers to the Melbourne band scene, the four old friends have been drawing crowds through an epic journey at intimate venues and festivals for the best part of the past 4 years. Developing a tight live show bolstered by wild improvisation, the group have left punters itching for their first full length studio album Phase that mines jazz, psych and disco for its irresistible groove.

Capturing the spirit of the band, the 6 track debut LP of kaleidoscope jams is the interplanetary path between jazz, funk and disco with the perfect amalgamation of cosmic electronics and soulful acoustic instrumentation.

"Nine minutes of psychedelic perfection from the Melbourne-based band."
"Sublimely tight and gloriously loose-limbed."
"this new young space-kraut-jazz outfit announced their existence last November with a sinuous, nine-minute single called The Magnificent Moon, a groove the could have happily gone on for ever."
The Observer
"There's nods to the Venus Gang in its cape wearing jazz aesthetic, especially the title track which has a bassline so glorious it continues in your head long after the music has ended."
Electronic Sound
"My new favourite band from Austalia"
Gilles Peterson
"four-piece Mildlife have delivered a highly enjoyable debut of psych-infused pop which will appeal to dancefloor junkies and fusion lovers alike"
"Mildlife use elements of spacey jazz, funk, psych and disco to produce groovy sunkissed sounds. Hard to define but easy to listen to, the album constantly expands and refines itself with each track. Space jazz, funk, disco. The songs work well together. The band cite a wide range of influences on their music, from Herbie Hancock to Can, and it shows."
Buzzin Music
"An intriguing Australian mob who mix jazz, prog, funk and rock in an intoxicating way"
