Recently, we caught up with Jack from Age of Leisure to talk about our relationship with music, the electronic and dance music community in Meanjin, and the past and future of Pocketmoth. The full interview is here.
Age of Leisure exists "to provide a digital platform that gives voice to artists, communities and businesses supporting and participating in leftfield music in Meanjin (Brisbane) and across so-called Australia."
Thanks for having us Jack x

Released 16 March, 2021
Our 10th EP release welcomes a creative colleague and close friend. With a number of diverse releases under various aliases, the more personal projections of George Hickman’s latest work has precipitated the dawn of a fitting new project: George.
A vivid body of work that triggers euphoric and melancholic sentiment in synergy. Exploring playfully-improvised harmony, rhythm and flow, this touching 3-track EP feels both innately human and otherworldly. Opening proceedings is ‘Recall’; an energetic showcase of George’s knack for crisp drum programming, flourishing melodies and engulfing chords. Following on is ‘Against Better Judgement’, a deeply reflective ambient piece which places thoughtful dialogue in an immersive atmosphere. ‘Strange Ways’ appropriately closes the EP with its tight groove, textures and melodic experimentation.
All tracks written and produced by George Hickman in Queensland, Australia.
