Tom Rogers – Night Moves HEP002

TOM_TOGERS-NIGHT_NIGHT

Our second poster release from Tom Rogers, Night Moves is an A3 2-colour risograph print on 250gsm card stock.

Rogers has collected a myriad of day-to-night vibes from memory and experience, which he has used to recreate the transitional and emotional period that is sunset and ensuing night-time. Night Moves refers specifically to a time when change in perspective repositioned this everyday duality as significant: as a movement from light to dark; of opportunity, poetic exploration and creativity rather than one of mysterious limitations.

Tom Rogers – Dynamic Casual HEP001

Dynamic Casual is a beautiful limited-edition large-format poster by artist Tom Rogers. Rogers explores the phenomena at play in ordinary experiences in a series of intricate dot drawings informed by a brief narrative of summer day meandering. Details extracted from frozen moments contrast with depictions of the flowing motion between points in time, capturing a state which is simultaneously actively passive, and passively active. This print entertains Roger’s interest in “casual mysticism – the bridge between meditation and movement, thinking and doing.” Responding to music from artists ranging from Alice Coltrane and D/P/I, Roger’s pointillist style thoughtfully reconsiders the humbling minutia of existence in a Schröderian interpretation worthy of Giacomo Bala.

Rita Revell – I Had a Very Bad Time! HE005

HE-Product-Crop-sm_0002_RITA_Badtime_1

Happy Endin’ is very excited to present the debut release from Rita Revell in a limited run C30.

Droning synths, radio transmissions and stuttered mechanical rhythms weave through residual noises of hardware to produce a murky and melancholic tapestry. Repetitious and regretful dance music. But your ear is the coeval apparatus — and you’ve come this far — So, please, have a very bad time.

IMGP3420

Old material from Mundaring Weird, who have been previously described as “weirdo, ethereal, dark psalms from the deepest realms of the fifth continent.” Mundaring Weird’s portfolio consists of a collection of lo-fi bedroom recordings, incorporating repetitive loops, eerie, amorphous vocals and an expansively screwy and drugged out atmosphere.

Nirvana – Marines HE002

1

Like a broad smear of Vaseline on a lens, or a fly in the ointment, Nirvana maps a terrain of lo-fi anarchist footwork from an Australian perspective. Tropes of dance music are muddied by static and clipping, intertwining on the wisps of cyclonic winds. Stifled by the heat, La Nina, and high pressure regions of technological saturation, ‘Marines’ is a mutational sitwork – with one foot in the shoebox, and the other trepidatiously hovering the precipice.
