Live From Jakarta 30 June 2021

Stars and Rabbit mark the release of their latest album On Different Days by taking you back to where it began. In 'Live from Jakarta', Elda Suryani (lead vocals, melodica) and Didit Saad (guitar, backing vocals) perform a selection of songs from their latest offering in the living room right where those tunes were born.

The situation in Jakarta with the delta variant is very serious, because the pandemic was growing in severity we decided to take a pre-record of the live session the other week as a backup.

In order to adhere to government guidelines, we have decided to live stream the pre-recorded session instead of performing live, instead of performing together and risking our team's health.

Bolstered by Andi Irfanto on drums and Adam Armynhatta on bass, it doesn’t get more intimate than this as you witness Stars and Rabbit breathing life into the On Different Days repertoire, including the singles “Merry Alone” and “Pretty Anticipated”. Such is the raw and unguarded nature of this showcase, you may even catch a false start or two.

“Ideally we would've come to your city and played in front of you and hugged it all out on you,” says Elda. “Until then, on different days like these, we're still going to play for you and hug you, coming live from another world through a screen in front of you.”

So sit back and enjoy as Stars and Rabbit bring their living room right to your living room, or wherever you feel most comfortable watching this stream.

The video will still have an interactive live feel and Elda and Didit will be online to chat with their fans, we thank you for your understanding in this difficult time.

Jemma Freeman on your Phone 2 August 2019

Find a Place out today!

Video best viewed on your Phone with headphones

Jemma says on the video.

When I first started doing drag it was as little experiments on my phone that were held secretly within the privacy of that device. I like the idea that one of the most powerful objects we have as modern people is a tiny piece of handheld technology. With a few insignificant swipes, information can be shared that devastates or elevates lives.

It's been the place where I've saved myself from being erased, conversations online with friends and more importantly strangers where I developed my secret queer life before I was confident it could ever exist in reality. It's an object I have both a fascination and a fear of, I can become lazy or demotivated sometimes and it serves as a vortex of distraction or it has helped me be creative when I've been too unwell to be able to find the energy to use more traditional tools to either record music or make art.

I filmed it all on my mobile and the initial editing, effects and grading were all created with free apps within it. I like the idea that our mobiles are both a place of absolute privacy but the tool that we use to share our most intimate thoughts with strangers.

When I first started to realise I was queer, it was my sanctuary and only means of expression and exploration. I wanted the video in its pillar-box format to feel personal, like I've sent a message late at night to a friend about my latest experiment and look.

Find a Place by Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something is out now on digital via Cargo Records.

Find a Place @ Bandcamp 30 July 2019

On Friday this week we drop 'Find a Place' by Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something. 'Find a Place' has picked up plays and praise from John Kennedy on Radio X, Charlie Ashcroft on Amazing Radio, Get in Her Ears on Hoxton Radio and some radio stations over the pond in the USA!

JFATCS recorded two different performances of the track and mixed both versions in mono. As a result, in the full stereo version both mono mixes are playing at the same time, one panned hard left and the other hard right. This adds to the ethereal feel of the track as the brain processes both inputs. Producer Mark Estall was inspired by the ideas of Jason Pierce of Spiritualized who had intended to record their album ‘Ladies & Gentlemen... /Let It Come Down’ this way, but didn’t due to lack of funds.

We've decided to make all three mixes available exclusively via Jemma's Bandcamp; Stereo, Mono (L) and Mono (r)



Pre-order now and stream the stereo mix on Bandcamp!

Out on August 2nd

Album Announcement: 'Bath Time' by Maija Sofia 27 June 2019

Trapped Animal Records announce Maija Sofia’s debut album ‘Bath Time’ with lyric video and free download of ‘Edie Sedgwick’

We first heard Maija circa 2016/17, whilst taking a train and bumbling around the internet listening to random artists. We immediately wrote to her to ask if she'd play our of our nights... and Maija featured on our first release - a split single Jan 2018. Bath Time is a beautiful collection of songs that are poetry and We're extremely honoured that Maija has picked us to represent her for this release

As a taster of what’s to come from her debut album, Maija Sofia will be releasing album track ‘Edie Sedgwick’ as a lyric video and free download, available for free via Maija’s bandcamp. The debut album ‘Bath Time’ is to be released in Autumn 2019.

Of the track, Maija says: “The song is about the demise of a relationship that was spiralling beyond anything that I could salvage. I wrote it during a summer I spent in London, living in my grandmother’s empty flat entirely in solitude while trying to get away from my ‘real life’ in Dublin, it’s about the realisation of having lost oneself in the process of caring for someone else. Edie Sedgwick was famously a ‘muse’ for Andy Warhol, I think she found her way into the song as I was thinking about the ways our identities can be shaped by other people, and how the ways we are represented is symptomatic of power dynamics, how there is a power to portraying a certain narrative.”

With Edie Sedgwick, Maija wanted to strike a balance between a heavily produced single and the “atmospheric night-time melancholy” of bedroom demos. She called in cellist Laura McCabe (Molly Sterling) and lap steel player Niall Murphy (Oh Boland) to complete the magic and the track was recorded in at Ailfionn Studio, Dublin, with engineer Chris Barry. The lyric video is made up from archive train journey footage Maija took during her stay in London and “liked the idea of displaying words over the landscapes I was looking out at while they were being written”.

Praise for Maija Sofia

"A real timeless quality is rare in so much of modern music, but the delicate timbre of Maija Sofia's music is impossible to ascribe to particular moment. She doesn't occupy an easily identifiable space - there are few genres which could accurately pinpoint her sound - and the ease with which she weaves grand tales of mythos into short and delicate folk tunes suggests a true finesse. Her subject matter is seldom trivial - abuse, mythological stories, feminism and loss are considered with a confident serenity [...] Fans of Sofia wait with bated breath for the release of her first full-length LP in 2019."

- Andrea Cleary, The Irish Times '50 People to Watch in 2019'

'An essential new release to get obsessed with' - DIY magazine, 2018

‘A heavenly blend of lo-fi and dream pop. Think Jesus and Mary Chain meets Angel Olsen.’ - Hot Press, 2018
