PALMS
Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Foundry, Brisbane, 20th August 2015.

Palms are the rockin’ noise brats from Sydney who have been leaving a trail of destruction wherever they go, in the audio sense, that is. The four piece is made up of ex-members of Red Riders, John Steel Singers, Stature::Statue and Straight Arrows. Born kicking and screaming into the music world in 2012, They released their first album ‘Step Brothers’ on Spunk Records in 2013 and have just released their sophemore effort ‘Crazy Rack’ on Ivy League Records. Their brand of noise rock has a summer-y tinge to it, perfect for the season we’re about to enter.

Dead Farmers
Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at Greenslopes Bowls Club, Brisbane, 14th March 2015.

Hailing from Sydney, garage-punkers Dead Farmers sprouted up through the cracks of Australia’s largest city’s underbelly and began rocking audiences in the mid-2000’s. Very reminiscent of the Detroit rock scene that produced bands such as The Stooges and MC5, they self-recorded their latest album ‘Wasteland’ straight onto half-inch tape free of reverb and post-recording effects, and sent it off to mastering to be improved upon.

The two acts share some members, all doing completely different things, but with incredible aplomb. Members include Chris Langenberg, James Walker, Amber Ramsay and Fionn Richards amongst others

Their debut album ‘Status Updates’ was released in early 2015 on Gun Fever Records and features songs about friends, social media addiction and the state of Australian politics. Their live shows perfectly demonstrate their level of energy and rage that makes these songs all the more powerful.

Weak Boys
Recorded and Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Mastered by Andrew Edgson
Recorded at Oxford Art Factory, Sydney, 30th of January, 2015.

Weak boys are a group of 30 something year olds who like to sing about your everyday life and the problems we all face like landlords, hangovers, and running out of wine. Their members Matt Banham, Craig Lyons, and Chris Yates have all played in other memorable bands over the years including Dollar Bar, No Through Road, and Little Lovers, which make them a super group of sorts. Their songs are a flawless mixture of bright jangly guitar pop, with subtle glum undertones that feel like the soundtrack to a Sunday afternoon after a big weekend.

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.

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.
