In November 2011, Serious Beak released their debut album Huxwhukw to critical acclaim. It received delightful reviews from the likes of Loud Mag, Music Feeds, Sea of Tranquility, Metal Sucks, Metal Obsession, Invisible Oranges, Kill Hipsters, and Metal As Fuck amongst others.
The reception by Australia’s underground musicians must have been similar, because when the band made the raw stems from Huxwhukw available online and asked people to remix, rework and transform their debut album there was no shortage of interest.
After receiving dozens of submissions from Australia and beyond, the band have pieced together their favourite ten tracks into a special digital-only release: Huxwhukw and the Crooked Beak of Heaven Remixes. The album spans genres as diverse as glitchy electronica, ambient shoegaze, classical film score, German industrial metal and an acoustic country hoedown, from artists such as Alex Wilson (sleepmakeswaves, Enkidu), Nick Soole (Slimey Things), Dylan Mitrovich (Breaking Orbit), Hinterlandt, Godswounds and many more.
The album is available on a pay-what-you-like basis from BandCamp.
