Melbourne’s charmingly unpretentious anthemic pop rockers CERES have thrown convention out the window and released a surprise 7″/EP, complete with new video, a remix and hand stamped artwork. All on the eve of a spectacularly long tour with VIOLENT SOHO. It’s all ready to go and you can hear / see everything right away. Doesn’t get much better than this!
Introducing the first Monastery Coffee x Hobbledehoy collaboration; Deri Kocha – an unusual, sweet, Ethiopian bean ideal for espresso or filter methods (we recommend Aeropress!). After a long cupping process, Erin and I, together with Adam from Monastery, finally nailed this one down and we’re all really excited for you to try it!
Monastery are a local team based alongside us here in Adelaide. A small batch, specialty coffee roaster, that share our philosophy of putting the artist/producer at the center of how we do things. This very same ethos ensures Monastery’s quality, while also respecting the people involved at every stage from planting to production.
You can order the beans from our online store now, they will be shipping from NOV 5 onward. We also have new Hobbledehoy mugs in store ideal for all hot beverages, and a combo package for both to save on shipping.
We’ll be announcing a special launch party in Adelaide in a few days time too. OOOOOH IT’S GOING TO BE GOOOOOOOOD!
Ceres – I Don’t Want To Be Anywhere But Here LP is now SOLD OUT, thank you! 2nd press on opaque Yellow /500 copies is available for pre-order.
You can pick it up from your local, get it direct from us or services like bandcamp, itunes, etc…

Hobbledehoy 2LP vinyl first press limited to 500 Navy Blue. Deluxe gatefold with copper foil printing.
Since 2004, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU has been forging some of the world’s most brutal, dynamic, and precariously visceral instrumental rock. In addition to a vigorous tour schedule, their celebrated discography and critically renowned soundtrack work for feature films and documentaries have earned them a sizable and fervent international following. Another Language, TWDY’s fourth full length LP, marks their euphonious return from a prolonged vacuous dark period that threatened to break both the band and the members themselves. Rather than be stifled by their experience TWDY were atomized and subsequently made anew, emerging with a revived energy and reinforced sense of solidarity. As a result, Another Language captures the band at its most potent, honed, and utterly powerful form yet, displaying an edified unity and graduated sense of song-writing, tonal complexity, and studio prowess.

If you’ve ever wondered which colourful characters you might encounter at a CERES gig, they’re all represented here in the brand new video for their rocking tune ‘Syllables’ – and it’s nice to see they’ve got at least one superfan. The song is taken from their debut album I Don’t Want To Be Anywhere But Here, out now. You can also thank the good folks at Rockaway Creative for coming up with this film clip.
Taken from Jamie Hay’s tumblr blog:
Hey Everyone, I am really pleased to announce that I have 2 new songs for download! accompanied by limited edition prints by Chris Colohan & Ben Soedradjit with all profits going to the Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service.
I chose to donate the proceeds to WDVCS because they are a not for profit and do incredible work supporting woman & children who suffer at the hands of their abusers. I believe that domestic violence is a national emergency. The fact that in Australia, one woman is killed every week by her partner or ex-partner is shocking & frightening. We need to create and continue discussion about it to bring it more to the surface. I can write a song about it but organisations like WDVCS are doing real work & need our support.
Women’s Domestic Violence Crisis Service of Victoria (WDVCS) is the state-wide not-for-profit service for women and children experiencing violence and abuse from a partner or ex-partner, another family member or someone close to them. WDVCS provides emergency accommodation, a free 24-hour crisis line, outreach services, advocacy, referral, and information and support services to enable women and children to become – and stay – free from violence.
Water Memory & Hurry to Heaven are two new songs by Jamie Hay with Liam White. Recorded, Mixed & Mastered by Sam Johnson at Three Phase Studios, Melbourne on January 23rd 2014.
