sb2

In episode 46 of live Delay we take in the soothing guitar pop of Swaying Buildings as well as the art-rock of singer-songwriter Ed Guglielmino.

SWAYING BUILDINGS
Recorded by Darragh Murray.
Mixed by Branko Cosisc.
Recorded at The Beetle Bar, Brisbane, September 2013.

Our feature set on episode 46 of Live Delay comes from Swaying Buildings. A four piece known as purveyors of delicious guitar pop, they’ve recorded two long players, including 2011’s highlight, ‘Bloom Beside the Freeway Moon’ which included the impressive ‘Different Now’.

This live set comes from their support slot at The Bell Divers album launch back in September 2013. It’s a goodie, so make sure you tune in!

EDWARD GUGLIELMINO
Recorded by Anthony Pink. Mixed by Matthew Redlich.
Recorded at Cori’s House, 2010.

Know around the place as Ed G, Ed has been playing music around Brisbane for most of this century. Often described with terms such as avant-garde pop, he’s a rare breed: a musician with opinions and a biting sense of good-humoured cynicism.

He’s toured around the world and is regularly welcomed in cities like New York, Berlin and Hobart. He’s played with the likes of UK Songstress Kate Nash, and he released a great record called Sunshine State in 2012.

Today’s featured set predates all this, and we’re going back to the wilds of 2010 to catch Ed playing songs live in a suburban Brisbane backyard – Cori’s backyard, specifically.

Episode 23: Holy Balm; Four Door

In episode 23 of Live Delay, we get busy with Sydney and bring you tro great sets from HOLY BALM and FOUR DOOR.

HOLY BALM
Recorded and mixed by Andrew McLellan, 2012
Recorded at The Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane, August 2012

Psychedelic electric jams, punctuated by drum machines, acoustic percussion and waves of synth, Sydney’s Holy Balm bring their minimalist dance music to the Live Delay stage, ripping it up in front of a packed house at 4ZZZ’s Get Happier Fest back in August 2012.

Find out more about Holy Balm.

FOUR DOOR
Recorded and mixed by Andrew McLellan
Recorded at the Lost Race Festival, Cooparoo Bowls Club, November 2012

Four Door describe themselves in four words – techno, synths, creeps, bleeps. And I guess that’s a very accurate although simplistic description of the group’s housey weirdness.

Four Door are actually Jonathan Hochman and Matthew Hopkins, two dudes from Sydney who are fond of things electronic. You might recognise Hochman from his duties with Sydney trio, Holy Balm, whereas Hopkins plays in Naked On The Vague.

Four Door have played with the likes of Blank Realm, The Garbage and The Flowers and New War, but came up to Brisbane in October last year to play the Lost Race Festival at the Cooparoo Bowls Club in the city’s inner south.

Mere Women

Mere Women

Two sets this week! First up is Sydney trio post-punk trio Mere Women followed by a visit to the pysch stables of Dreamtime.

MERE WOMEN
Recorded and produced by FBi Radio, Sydney.
Graciously shared with Live Delay.

Mere Women are Katrina Byrne, Amy Wilson and Flyn McKinnirery, a talented trio from Marrickville, Sydney. They’ve been kicking aorund the scene for a few years now and brought out the well received OLD LIFE in mid-2012 – a noisy, laconic adventures of post-punk with some gothic undertones thrown in for good measure. They’ve got an interesting sound and make for an excellent live group and you should definitely tune in to check out this set from their 2012 Old Life record launch in Sydney. Our good friends FBi radio were on hand to capture the set and it’s via them that we can bring it to your eardrums!

DREAMTIME
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham
Recorded at The Primitive Room, Spring Hill.

Dreamtime have been kicking around Brisbane for a few years now, putting out a well received self titled LP in late 2011, and following it up with the sprawling noise of SUN in late 2012 – a great sophomore record filled with distant soundscapes, wailing guitars and percussive elements that herald an imminent storm. Counting groups like The Cosmic Dead, Six Organs of Admittance, and the Psychic Ills among their influences, Dreamtime have caught the attentions of fans near and far and were invited to play Austin Psych fest in Texas in April 2013. This recording made by Sky Kirkham for Live Delay comes from their set at 2012’s ROCK TO TRANSMIT at the Primitive Room in Spring Hill, Brisbane.

Episode 12: Four Door; Martyr Privates

Four Door

Four Door

Why hello there! We’re up to episode twelve of Australia’s best live music show – Live Delay. Did you know that the only way on can make a good day better is via live music? A doctor told me that once.

This episode has some great performances contained within. First up is an extended set of bleeps and creeps from Sydney’s FOUR DOOR. And just when you thought it could get any better, we sneak in a song or two from Brisbane’s MARTYR PRIVATES. Outrageous value.

FOUR DOOR
Recorded and mixed by Andrew McLellan
Recorded at the Lost Race Festival, Cooparoo Bowls Club, November 2012

MARTYR PRIVATES

Martyr Privates is fronted by Cameron Hawes, who people may also know from I Heart Hiroshima. The band also features Ashleigh Shipton on bass and Sam Dixon on drums, and they’re renowned around town for the fondness of noise and repetition. Is it dirge-rock? Who knows?
