Melbourne label Left Ear celebrate 20 releases with underground Aussie singer Justine Bradley

For the 20th release from this leading reissue label, Left Ear Records have focused on the mysterious Sydney songstress Justine Bradley, who recorded her self titled album in 1979.

It’s a beautiful double sider that will play nicely alongside modern soul nuggets, Japanese breeze and AOR.

“It’s an album which captures Justine’s unique vocal talents and songwriting ability,” the label explains. “Here Justine meshes melancholic-soul with folk sensibilities and funky-jazz inspired arrangements both with an intimate and honest approach.

“The album was funded by a radio station, as the beneficiary for emerging talent and created specifically for radio play, without any intention of being manufactured. Luckily, a friend with ties to a pressing plant, known aptly as ‘Midnite Flite’, pressed up a small number for those involved.”

Left Ear’s 20th release features two tracks from this elusive album – on a loud 12” single – and is out now through Rush Hour in the EU, Seance Centre in North America, direct through Left Ear in the Antipodes, as well as in all good record shops.
