We jump back about 30 episodes and take in the live chops of Feathers, Dune Rats, and Outerwaves.

FEATHERS
Recoded and mixed by Sky Kirkham
Recorded at The Alhambra Room, Brisbane.

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.

DUNE RATS
Recorded by Sky Kirkham.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.

Holy mixtapes batman, this Dune Rats set is full of mind-blowing awesome. For the uninitiated, Dune Rats are a surfy-garagy duo from Brisbane with a fondness for crazy party hijinks. The 4ZZZ live recording team were present to capture the band demonstrating their wide ranging live musical powers at the 2012 Rock to Transmit at The Primitive Room in Brisbane, and by the beard of Zeus, it was enjoyable. Fortunately, we can share it here with you on Live Delay. Listen in for ‘Pogo’ – it’s a winner.

OUTERWAVES
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham.

Our next dose of live tunes is from electronic artist Dominic Stephens – who occasionally operates under the moniker Outerwaves. You may know Stephens from other groups such as Oh Ye Denver Birds and Nimble Animal. Outerwaves, however, is a solo project where Stephens can embrace his pop and hip hop interests in a bit more of an intimate fashion.

Dappled Cities

In the latest episode of Live Delay we engage in a battle of the D-titled bands, catching up with the much loved DAPPLED CITIES of Sydney town, as well as Brisbane’s own DUNE RATS.

DAPPLED CITIES
Recorded and mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan, 2012.
Produced by FBi Radio, Sydney.

Featuring songs from across their four album discography, we bring you a special Dappled Cities concert recorded in mid-2012 by our friends at FBi Radio in Sydney. The accomplished and critically acclaimed Sydney band really pull out all stops and this extended set brings you songs like ‘Holy Chord’, ‘The Night Is Young At Heart’ and even the oldie (but definitely a goodie) ‘Peach’. Dappled Cities – a great live band and captured here on in their majestic best.
