Straight out of Sydney, the punks from Ted Danson With Wolves have an infatuation with long names and even longer jams. Their latest EP “Don’t Tell  Me What’s Wrong With You Because I Will Find Out And Tell You. It Will Make Sense To You And Work” may only be three songs but it runs well over the 15-minute mark. Their sound is a combination of raw DIY aesthetics, technical and intricate instrumentation that has been lightly smoothed over by sandpaper made of jazz thanks to the always present saxophone strung around the neck of frontman Nick Levi.

It’s not too often a psych band comes out of Brisbane, with a majority of bands tending to favor the cities punk roots, but Twin Haus have come along to prove that the sunshine state is more than capable of producing top tier psychedelic tunes. Their sound is a compilation of layers that draw you further in with each listen, drifting between prog riffs to delicate melodies and topped with soft and somewhat calming vocals. This set was recorded especially for 4ZZZ during Live Music Week and the day before their latest EP ‘Nothing Lavish’ was released. Many thanks go out to Danielle Engen and Daniel Grima for making this set happen.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 7-8pm, Sunday 29th April 2016.
Show production and engineering: Branko Cosic.
