BigStrongBrute
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid on the 10th of April, 2015.

First up, we have a band with an incredibly huge name, but an incredibly svelte physical figure.
The group we’re talking about is BigStrongBrute, the moniker adopted by sole songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Paul Donoughue. Starting out as a solo outlet, has morphed into a multi-headed live show, at times as many as 8 people strong creating a wall of folk melody. His 2010 EP release ‘We Can Sleep Under Trees In The Morning’ got many ears paying attention. Bigstrongbrute’s debut album, 2012’s ‘Avalanche Of Truth’, really got people excited, as it displayed the many different flavours of this talented individual. July sees the release of his latest EP ‘Good Work’, which many of the songs in this set you’re about to hear appear on.

Caitlin Park
Recorded by Harvey O’Sullivan & Hugh Fasher
Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Mastered by Andrew Edgson
Recorded at The Standard on the 12th of February, 2014.

Caitlin Park writes and performs folktronica, taking folk and electro-acoustics to new heights with her abstract composition, sampling and film nostalgia. Releasing her debut album in 2011, MILK ANNUAL is a sprawling, intricate and heart-warming foray into the soundscapes of old films, audio books, spoken word, and minimalistic musical arrangement.
For much of 2012, Caitlin travelled to New York and London, and collected sounds which would appear on her critically lauded 2nd album, 2013’s The Sleeper, which was shortlisted for the Australian Music Prize.

Many thanks to Harvey O’Sullivan from FBi Radio’s Live Feed for his assistance.
