Episode 25: Warpigs; Adalita

warpigslive

Episode 25 of Live Delay takes the plunge into the world of ambient instrumental drone with a special set from Melbourne’s WARPIGS. We also warp back in time to BigSound 2011 to listen to a few excellent live songs from ADALITA.

WAR PIGS
Recorded and mixed by Brian O’Dwyer with some additional mixing from Dusty Anastassiou
Recorded at the Old Bar, Melbourne, 2013.

Describing their music in terms of epic space and divine cut throat blues sounds fairly audacious, but instrumental drone two piece Warpigs are not too far off the money. Made up of drummer Brian O’Dwyer and Andrew ‘Poly’ Polydourou, they’re an experimental group not afraid to indulge in a bit of ambient noise.

The feature set we have for you today is a journey into the maw of carthathis and comes the band’s performance at The Old Bar in Melbourne around about March 2013. We also managed to catch up with Brian from the band to have a bit of a chat about how important live performance is to a band like Warpigs.

ADALITA
Recorded and mixed by Matt Denver of D4 Studios at BigSound 2011
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.

Episode 5: Velociraptor; Feathers; Adalita

velociraptor

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.
