Urban Bowerbird

Hello internet. Urban Bowerbird is a site intended to share music that I have found out there in the urban wilderness of Australia which may not have been widely heard. I intend to focus mainly on Australian releases, particularly jazz, soundtrack, field recordings, Australiana etc. but will also include any other albums that have appealed to me. If you like any of the music or have some interesting information about any of the artists or albums, please leave a comment.

All of these rips are from my own collection and were transferred to mp3 with a Newmark PT-01 USB turntable. They have not been treated with any noise-reduction software or anything like that, so the sound quality can vary depending on the state of the original vinyl.

Obviously, I don't want to get sued, so if you feel that the sharing of any of the releases on this site is a violation of copyright (or are currently commercially available) please contact me at cambrianexplosion at


  1. I have no idea how you dig up such amazing finds.

  2. Well, I tend to only buy cheap vinyl, so I just buy whatever looks interesting and then find out if they're any good when I get home. This blog is only going to showcase the good stuff - I've got a stack of really crap records at home which I wouldn't bother including on the blog, so there's a strong confirmation bias going on.

  3. great job so far!!! looking forward to your future posts....hello from Virginia, u.s.
