Recorded at Oxford Art Factory (Volumes 2015), Sydney, 29th August 2015.

Blossoming out of the luscious Sydney music scene, Flowertruck are all about bright jangly guitars, captivating synth melodies, and honesty with their lyricism. Their latest shows include support slots for Bad Dreems, Methyl Ethyl, Sticky Fingers, and Major Leagues, and in early 2016 they released their EP Dirt through the legendary Spunk Records label. Their cheerful sounding tunes and straightforward, truthful song writing will leave you in a state of happiness that can only be delivered via Flowertruck.

Recorded at The Bearded Lady, Brisbane, 12th September 2015

Coming from the somewhat secluded island state of Tasmania, Tiger Choir create soundscapes as rich and luxurious as their surroundings. They elegantly combine swirling synth lines, prickly and sporadic guitars and deep bass lines with big choruses that you can’t help but shout along with.

Episode 49: The Native Cats


Recorded and mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at the Alliance Tavern, Brisbane, September 2013.

Woah! This is the first time we’ve had a band from HOBART, TASMANIA on the show. And it’s long overdue!

Fresh from polling #4 in the Mess and Noise critics choice in 2013 for their 2013 blockbuster ‘Dallas’, The Native Cats are on Live Delay. Coincidence? I think not.

We’ve got this extra special pre-xmas gift for all you listeners out there – The Native Cats playing live on stage from the Alliance Tavern in Brisbane back in September 2013.

If you’ve never heard of the band before, they’re made up of Peter Escott and Julian Teakle and formed in Hobart in 2007, playing their first show on Australia Day 2008. Since then they’re released three full length records, toured extensively both in Australia and in the United States. Calling the likes of The Fall and New Order influences, they’ve got this great pastiche of noise and stream of conscious style lyrics floating around in the sonic crevices between your brain and your motor functions. It’s great stuff.

We’re pretty stoked to be able to bring this full length live set of The Native Cats. There’s also a special feature interview with Julian from the band to break up the sweaty dance floor with.

Find out more about The Native Cats.

p.s Merry xmas!
