06. Adult Contempt
Expanding upon ideas from the Gil Michell collaboration. Touched by an Angel repents prior

and nihilist minimal wave, Michél’s meticulous biological rhythms robustly jenga at footwork.
Representing the foundation for a spate of output, Touched stands to the side of 2012’s Boyfriend
Material, reduced to depraved stylistic throngings. Release date: 12/08/2014

a. Hold Tight
b. Fallen on Strings
Kane Ikin sent us through two songs and some earnest words
ahead of his forthcoming EP “Warehouses”, through TT early 2014.
“2013 was a year of intense highs and lows, specifically the loss of my mother, Jenny, in
April after several hard months battling cancer. My mother was always a central figure in
my life. An anchor to which no matter what, I could always rely on. I think of her everyday.
These two songs were made at our family home, this time last year while I was with her
during an unbearable summer.
Upstairs while she lay sleeping, quietly created with an old barely functioning synthesiser
and a guitar caked in dust I’d left behind when I’d moved out 12 years prior. They’re not
meant to be sad songs, but when I listen to them now I feel that relentless heat and the
numbness that surrounded me.
They stand alone from anything I’ve done since, so here they are together.
…With love, For Jenny.” – Kane

This Thing brings you a new C15 cassingle from Melbourne’s Harvey Sutherland.
Having kept a low profile as a behind-the-scenes man and session player, Harvey has dusted off his machines to bring you ‘Nexus’ – an instrumental take on the 1983 italo classic “Stand Up”, accompanied by lo-fidelity Roland sketches ‘Q3′ and ‘Pale Blue’ on the B-side.
The digital release (tracked from the tape demos) includes a slow-motion remix of ‘Q3′ by fellow //TT// collaborator Kane Ikin.

The long awaited follow up to his 2010 mixtape “Mohican Beats”.
Electric Sea Spider (aka Jim Sellars) Began recording Supercash in early 2010 whilst living in a shoebox room at what was shortly This Thing headquarters. Jim would be working away in secret with headphones on, occasionally you’d hear snippets but you could never place when he made this music amongst his usual routine of watching cartoons, hanging with his friends and eating a lot of hommus.
*Limited edition CD comes with two unreleased bonus tracks.
