Horris

Recorded by Branko Cosic
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at The Bearded Lady, Brisbane, December 26th 2015.

Horris have been kicking around the local scene since 2011, demonstrating their high energy performances that involve a heavy element of crowd participation. Their debut EP ‘You Can’t Do Anything And Life Will Disappoint You’ is a 7 song compilation of their ability to combine chaotic drums, buzzing guitars, and scratchy vocals to make a high energy record that is sure to get the heart beating.

Feathers

Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Trainspotters, Brisbane, December 12th 2015. 

Starting off in 2006, this psychedelic witchgaze group have released a full length album through record label bon voyage, and accumulated a mountain of support slots for international bands like Best Coast, Earthless, and Vivian Girls. Their album ‘Hunters Moon’ was recorded over three hours in the now defunct Tribal Theatre, and their sound is a perfect balance of 60’s psychedelica and jangly 80’s pop.

Episode 56 (rebroadcast): Feathers; Dune Rats; Outerwaves

tumblr_lw2xf10qiX1qc70luo1_r1_500

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.

Find out more about Feathers.

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.

Find out more about Dune Rats.

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.

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

ADALITA
Recorded and mixed by Matt Denver of D4 Studios
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.

Airing details: First aired via Zed Digital, 8-9pm, Friday 8 February 2013.
