Harmony

Recorded by Kelly Schinkel
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, 18th August 2018

Harmony are a remarkable band that are equal parts beautiful and brutal. They encapsulate the whole range of human emotion, with blistering intensity of screeching guitars and roars with harmonies that soothe and romance you. They formed in 2009 and would release 3 albums and various singles including last year’s record ‘Double Negative’.  

The band features a stripped back collection of guitar, bass, drums and a vocal duality of Tom Lyngcoln’s intense vocals supported by 3 vocalists providing amazing harmonies. The songs are intense and full of emotion, balancing the beauty of the harmonies with the rawness of the musicality and Tom’s vocals. The six members are from all over the Melbourne scene featuring along with Lyngcoln, Alex Kastaniotis on drums, Jonathan Chapple on bass and the trio of Amanda Roff, Quinn Delany and Erica Dunn providing the angelic tones.  

This set demonstrates the beauty of what Harmony do, it was pure emotion with the ferocity of the music and howling with the soaring harmonies elevating to a near spiritual level. I can’t say enough about this band and this set so here it is, recorded live at Sonic Masala Festival on the 18th of August, 2018.

Exciting times are afoot in the Live Delay office. Well, it’s not really an office, more like a self-made hovel underneath a bridge outside Brisbane, but I can get free wifi. Anywhoo – yes, exciting times. Episode 21 is upon us and we’re about to get busy with some podcasting action! The details will be made public very soon (so, wathc this space).

To celebrate the above fact, we thought we’d bring you some of the best live delay tracks from across the first twenty episodes. All of these have been recorded, mixed and produced by community radio volunteers and I’m might impressed by the results.

In the bracket of songs you will hear tonight, you’ll get live tuned from HARMONY, HOLY BALM, KEEP ON DANCINS, BITCH PREFECT and many more.

The show goes out via Zed Digital tonight at 8pm, as well sa the Community Radio Network. It will be also available in podcast format early next week.

Harmony

In this special episode of Live Delay, as usual, we have some exceptional live performances to showcase, including Melbourne’s HARMONY, who Live Delay recorded when the band visited Brisbane in February 2013. Also joining Harmony on the bill is former Go Betweens members’ ADELE & GLENN, as well as Brisbane song crafter extraordinaire, BEN SALTER.

HARMONY
Recorded by Darragh Murray and Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at the Alhambra Bar, Brisbane.

A melange of souful rock and roll and gallow blues, Harmony are one of the best bands going in Australia today. Featuring the powerful voice and guitar of Tom Lyncoln (The Nation Blue), drummer Alex Kastaniotis, and bassist Jon Chapple (ex-Mclusky), Harmony also throw in a three-part gospel choir for good measure which gives their sound even more transcendental dynamics.

Recently, They’ve followed up their critically acclaimed self-titled debut with a solid 7 inch release of ‘Do Me A Favour’ in early 2013, with their second record due to be released sometime very soon. Until then you can enjoy this exclusive live set from the band, featuring six excellent songs.

Find out more about Harmony.

ADELE & GLENN
Recorded by John Robinson for BEAU FM.
Mixed by Matt Dever.

Sydney duo Adele Pickvance & Glenn Thompson are well known for their participation in the second coming of The Go Betweens in the early 2000s. Thompson also played drums for the beloved Custard during the late 1990s. But they’re also an excellent duo in their own right, playing a unique brand of folky-pop music. They released a well-received LP in 2012 called ‘Carrington Street’ but this live set comes from their 2012 appearance at the Big Sound conference in Brisbane.

BEN SALTER
Recorded by John Robinson for BEAU FM.
Mixed by Matt Dever.

The multitalented Ben Salter is well known in the contemporary Australian musical landscape – cutting his teeth with the hard rocking Giants of Science while exercising his folkier alt-country moods via The Gin Club. He also went solo, releasing a critically acclaimed record – The Cat back in August 2011.

He’s a man with a distinctly powerful voice and a sly charisma that shines on his songs. The set we feature today on Live Delay comes from Big Sound in Brisbane in 2011
