Mastered by Paul Maybury
Recorded at PBS Fm Studios, Melbourne, 3rd February 2016.

 

Jess Ribeiro’s career started as a three piece, featuring her long-term​ collaborator Rob Law in the group Jess Ribeiro and the Bone Collectors in the very under-represented​ city of Darwin. Their debut album My Little River won best country album at the 2013 AIR independent label awards. After an amicable creative split with Rob Law, Jess began working on her first solo record with legendary Australian musician, composer, songwriter, arranger Mick Harvey. Her album ‘Kill It Yourself’ was released in August 2015.

Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Elephant, Brisbane, 25th January 2016.

Starting in 2013, WAAX have been pushing everyone out of their way with their raw, punk-infused​ brand of rock. They have rapidly become an act that’s known for their high energy live shows that is partly due to the fear instilled​ by their utterly terrifying and frenzied frontwoman Marie DeVita. In 2015, they released their debut EP Holy Sick and followed it up with an east coast tour that had everyone talking.

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.

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.

Special Episode: Song Reader – The Sydney Sessions

songReader

In collaboration with FBi Radio Sydney, join us on Friday July 12 via Zed Digital for a special once only live event.

Back in mid-December 2012, some of New South Wales most recognisable musical talent jumped up on stage and performed their own special live versions of songs from Beck Hansen’s Song Reader.

If you’re not in the know, Beck, known for his great record Odelay, Sea Change and Midnite Vultures, amongst many others, released his latest album in a strange format – via sheet music.

Under the direction of musical director Brian Campeau, artists including Richard in Your Mind, Dappled Cities, Elana Stone, Caitlin Park and Josh Pyke got together to perform some of the songs from Beck’s Song Reader, and raised funds for a great new Sydney benefit – the Sydney Story Factor, a non-profit writing centre in Redfern dedicated to assisting marginalised youth via one-on-one tutoring.

It’s going to be a great night of live music, so get your digital radios handy for a special once off broadcast of SONG READER – The Sydney Sessions.

All songs recorded and mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan for FBi Radio Sydney.
Mastered by Andrew Edgson.
