After touring extensively, including the National Gallery in Canberra, the University of Woollongong, and the Arthouse in Melbourne, Buttress took the new songs she’d been trying out on audiences (like ‘Dexodus’ and ‘I Like’) and placed them alongside live experiments with AudioMulch (with source material ranging from Guns N Roses, to Crystal Waters, to Wu Tang Clan), as well as several pieces she’d composed for other projects (including ‘Some Assembly Required’s 50/50 compilation). Continues in her fine tradition of straddling the line between breakcore, mashup, and pure dada.

‘Scraping It Hard’ was Watermann’s first release as Spinal Machine. Its four tracks range from minimal electronics, to cutups, to soundscape manipulations.
