Woah! We’re at episode FIVE already? Time really flies when you’re having fun. And trust me, this episode is killer. We’re highlighting three outstanding lives sets in this episode from Velociraptor, Feathers and Adalita.

VELOCIRAPTOR
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012.

Velociraptor are a chameleon beast sent to destroy your ideas about rocking and rolling. This TWELVE piece band are purveyors of the infectious and masters in the art of stagecraft – they even took out 2012 Hot 100 with their viral pop song ‘Cynthia’. We feature a snippet of their tremendous performance at 2012’s Rock To Transmit. Trust me; it will blow your face off!

INTERVIEW: Jeremy Neale of Velociraptor.

FEATHERS
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012. 

Feather’s debut record Hunter’s Moon (2011) was one of the Australian music highlights of that year. This all female dreamy rock group conjure pop narratives with distinct psychedelic angles. Feathers can be gloomy, they can be transcendental and one could rattle off half a dozen influences here (Shop Assistants, The Shaggs, and so forth), but it really does the band a disservice to think of them simply as the sum of their influences. This set was recorded at the Alhambra Bar in Fortitude Valley Brisbane back in March 2012.

ADALITA
Recorded and mixed by Matt Denver of D4 Studios
Produced by John Robinson for BeauFM.

I really don’t need to waste your time spruiking the credentials of Adalita Srsen. The charismatic singer of Geelong’s legendary Magic Dirt released a fine debut solo record way back in 2011. Our friends at BeauFM were present to record part of her set at BigSound 2011 and Live Delay is pleased to give some digital radio love to some of Adalita’s sublime live performance.

Airing details: First aired via Zed Digital, 8-9pm, Friday 8 February 2013.
Production and engineering: Darragh Murray
Kudos: Sky Kirkham, John Robinson, Matt Denver, Beau FM
