A few nice bits of press rolling in for the 4064 EP and preview ‘single’ Rain Transplant. Read on, etc?
Hi there! Pleased to say my new EP 4064 is out now for free download (digital) and limited edition hand assembled CDR, from my bandcamp site.
More info below.
4064 is the debut EP release from Brisbane, Australia based musician Andrew Tuttle. Whilst winding down his previous musical project Anonymeye in late 2012 and early 2013, Tuttle continued to work on new recordings during the Australian summer. A relocation of house and home studio, new creative opportunities, and regular seasonal downpours subconsciously motivated Tuttle to create music reflecting on exciting new beginnings and seasonal and domestic bliss.
4064 (pronounced Four Zero Six Four), named after the suburb of Paddington in which the EP was written, features five new works, ranging from the title track, featuring a contemplative banjo motif that collapses into itself before eventual redemption; to the floating arpeggiated synthesiser workout Fallen Powerlines; to Porch Life, a blissful meeting of Farfisa organ and computer; and other points in between.
The five tracks on 4064 see Tuttle eschew his acoustic guitar, an integral instrument in previous projects; in favour of banjo, synthesiser, and organ. Whilst this isn’t predicting future directions by any means, the instrumentation used reflects Tuttle’s desire to explore differing musical outcomes now and into the future.
4064 will be released on 17 May 2013 as a free download via www.andrewtuttle.com.au (and portal websites), and as a limited edition CDR release.
Andrew Tuttle will be touring 4064 around Australia in May-August 2013, with performances in all states and mainland territories.

I’m visiting you this Friday (17th May) – I’m super mega excited about it. Only for one night, which is pretty lame (sorry!), will mean no Freo wandering/Little Creatures brewery hours… but also means I won’t bankrupt myself at Dada so it is probably for the best. Anyway!
I’m playing this awesome show at The Bird in Northbridge, with Sacred Flower Union, The Tigers, Gulls, Nora Zion. $5, 8pm, bargain! I’ll have a copies of my new EP 4064 for sale too (more info on the EP soon!).
