We All Want To
Recorded by Matthew Hall.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane on 29th of March, 2014.

Formed back in 2009, We All Want To is the brain child of Tim Steward, namely the front man of Brisbane institution ‘Screamfeeder’ to discover some melodies and hooks in slower tempo’s. A bulk of the material that you’ll be hearing in this set comes from the self-titled debut album that was released in 2010, and 2013’s “Come Up Invisible”. The show we’re about to delve into was recorded last year at The Underdog, and was the book-end to what had been a successful Brisbane Live Music Week that was celebrated by 4ZZZ and all of its listeners.

Dreamtime
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Donovan Miller at Nowhere Audio.
Recorded at Shedstock, Lismore on the 8th of June, 2014.

Dreamtime are a psychedelic rock quartet that started life as a trio, with Zac Anderson on Guitar, Cat Maddin on Bass and Tara Wardrop on Drums, and saw their ideas outgrowing them, so they added Fergus Smith on Sitar and various other instruments. Their first self-titled album was released in 2011 and quickly followed it up with their sophomore release ‘Sun’ in 2012. Since then they’ve conquered venues across the pond in the United States and Japan, and have shared stages with the likes of Earthless, Deap Vally & Bardo Pond.

Clare Quinn
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at 4 Layers of Zed, Brisbane. 29 March 2014.

Clare Quinn, a songstress originally hailing from Gympie and now based in Brisbane, sings on the conditions of the human heart: love, life, loss and learning. Channelling Celtic and folk rhythms and combining them with an indie-folk sensibility, Clare’s music is unassuming yet filled with memorable melodies. Her songs are underpinned with a lackadaisical charm, and suited to quiet hours with warm company.

Listen to the new EP Dreaming.

Extrafoxx
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at 4 Layers of Zed, Mar 29 2014.

Conwae Burrell is Extrafoxx, mostly, he has a band but faces come and go. He’s been making humorous but somehow earnest pop-punk since the early 2000s but it wasn’t until 2010 that Extrafoxx’s debut album was released on Bedroom Suck Records. Songs such as ‘Big Pineapple’ and ‘Lisa Needs Braces’ (an ode to the Simpsons joke) are like folk music for the jaded gen x internet addicts – everyone sings along too. If you don’t believe the hype just wait and hear for yourself.

Naked Maja
Recorded by Matt Hall.
Mixed by Michael Whitney.
Recorded at 4 Layers of Zed, Mar 29 2014.

They’ve undergone a few line-up changes while exploring their place in the greater sound spectrum. 2014 sees the band furthering their electronic influences and becoming tighter in the process without losing their introspective edge. In November 2013 they released their third EP titled Disillusion as a free download on bandcamp. For this performance they tried out some new material, a teething set as they called it. Chris Campion of the band Multiple Man (who we featured in episode 65 of Live Delay guests on synthesizer.
