Love Of Diagrams
Recorded & Mixed by Paul Maybury & Joe Fairburn.
Recorded at PBS FM Studios, Melbourne on the 3rd of February, 2015.

Forming in 2001, Love Of Diagrams started out as an instrumental band, releasing their debut album ‘The Target Is You’ in 2003 and then slowly bringing vocals into the fold with their follow up EP ‘We Got Communication’. 2007 saw them sign with massive independent label Matador Records and the worldwide release of ‘Mosaic’ their 2nd album to very kind critical reviews. There was a 6 year gap between their 3rd album ‘Nowhere Forever’ and their brand new album ‘Blast’, which came out last month on Bedroom Suck Records.

God Bows To Math
Recorded & Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Waiting Room on the 27th of April, 2013.

Taking their name from a song on The Minutemen’s ‘Double Nickels On The Dime’, Auckland’s God Bows To Math are fairly regular visitors to Australian shores. Proudly DIY, the New Zealand trio have performed their unique noise adventures at over 200 performances during their six year career. Their self-titled debut hit the shelves in 2011 and they’ve just released their brand new record ‘Brighter Futures’ which they recorded with Nick Roughan, who’s name you’ll find on records by classic New Zealand artists such as Bailterspace, The Clean, Headless Chickens & Die! Die! Die!. This performance from The Waiting Room in Brisbane back in April 2013 shows every angle of this exciting – and noisy – rock band.

Episode 113: Giants Of Science; Dollar Bar

Giants Of Science
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Prince Of Wales Hotel, Nundah, Brisbane on 17th of January, 2015.

If you wind your clock back to Brisbane circa 2000, the name Giants Of Science
was near inescapable. The four-piece blasted onto the Brisbane music scene with their noxious blend of stoner guitar overtones and fist pounding drums, they blew the minds of many punters who were perhaps unprepared for the show they were about to witness and made believers out of them. Sharing stages with the likes of Foo Fighters, MC5, Rollins Band, A Perfect Circle and Mudhoney, they became an institution and a benchmark for many bands to follow. Last year, the Giants released their first taste of new music in 9 years, with the EP titled, What’s Wrong With You And Why?, and you’ll be hearing some songs from that release in this set.

Dollar Bar
Recorded by Josh Watson & Mino Peric.
Mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at Electric Playground, Brisbane on the 4th of April, 2014.

Dollar Bar formed back in 1998 when Dale Peachey wanted to get a revolving band behind his Guided By Voices and Kurt Vonnegut inspired pop songs. That was the general idea until he got Patrick McCabe, Brendan Rosenstengel and Chris Yates involved, and they’ve stuck together ever since. Well, if you ignore the six years that they were on hiatus. The second coming of Dollar Bar has been very fruitful for the band; since getting back together they’ve released a compilation of old demos, a split cassette with Little Lovers, a sophomore album entitled Paddington Workers Club and now a third record which is just about to be released on Sonic Masala Records titled Hot Ones.

We All Want To
Recorded by Matthew Hall.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane on 29th of March, 2014.

Formed back in 2009, We All Want To is the brain child of Tim Steward, namely the front man of Brisbane institution ‘Screamfeeder’ to discover some melodies and hooks in slower tempo’s. A bulk of the material that you’ll be hearing in this set comes from the self-titled debut album that was released in 2010, and 2013’s “Come Up Invisible”. The show we’re about to delve into was recorded last year at The Underdog, and was the book-end to what had been a successful Brisbane Live Music Week that was celebrated by 4ZZZ and all of its listeners.

Dreamtime
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Donovan Miller at Nowhere Audio.
Recorded at Shedstock, Lismore on the 8th of June, 2014.

Dreamtime are a psychedelic rock quartet that started life as a trio, with Zac Anderson on Guitar, Cat Maddin on Bass and Tara Wardrop on Drums, and saw their ideas outgrowing them, so they added Fergus Smith on Sitar and various other instruments. Their first self-titled album was released in 2011 and quickly followed it up with their sophomore release ‘Sun’ in 2012. Since then they’ve conquered venues across the pond in the United States and Japan, and have shared stages with the likes of Earthless, Deap Vally & Bardo Pond.

Bandito Folk
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane on 20th of November, 2014.

Bandito folk have been kicking around Brisbane for a few years now, the guys are all former students at QUT – where they all met – and have clearly formed a tight bond playing music all day every day. Josh Tuck is the main songwriter of the group, his songs take on a unique blend of melancholic pop and alt country. In a market saturated by groups that ride the line between more mainstream rock and indie-folk arrangement it certainly helps that Josh has a strong voice and he’s backed by group of musicians that really know their stuff. Technically speaking, they have a lot to offer. Of course technicality isn’t everything and the songs that Josh has been writing over the past few years really reflect on not only his own experiences but experiences, thoughts and anxieties that we all share. For those reasons it’s really not that surprising th at they’ve ended up on legendary Brisbane label Valve.

Leighton Craig
Recorded by Joshua Watson.
Mixed by Michael Whitney.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Feb 14 2014.

Leighton’s been involved in the Brisbane music scene since the early 90’s – notably playing in fabled noise-rock collective, The Lost Domain, for a number of years. Nowadays, he’s better known for having played in The Deadnotes, Fig and Primitive Motion. On occasion, Leighton will perform solo, a rare and enchanting occurrence to be sure. His performances ranges from casio-pop songs to ambient soundscapes, a true journey for the aural senses.

For more information on Leighton and his projects check out the Kindling Records blog.

High Beamz
Recorded by Joshua Watson
Mixed by Michael Whitney.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Feb 14 2014.

Emma Wilson, aka High Beamz is riding the recent wave of techno revivalism – taking some deep-sea pearls of wisdom from Drexciya as well as more geographically appropriate acts like Scattered Order and the more recent Lace Curtain. Although, fairly new to the scene, she’s already focusing a sharp direct effort right into the feel-good-dancing culture of Brisbane.

On Episode 47 of Live Delay, we hear some epic live tunes from Brisbane fourpeice Nikko plus revisit the live raucous of God Bows To Math.

NIKKO
Recorded by Darragh Murray.
Mixed by Cameron Smith.
Recorded at the Beetle Bar, Brisbane, December 2012.

The frontier dark clamour of Nikko has reverberated around Brisbane for some time now. Emerging in around 2005, five schoolyard friends formed and devoted their time to writing dark lyrical masterpieces augmented by some incredible noise.

Made up of Ryan Potter, Jackson Briggs, Sam Whiting and Blair Westbrook, the band have released two excellent records, 2010’s The Warm Side and 2012’s Gold & Red amongst a host of EPs.

The feature set we’ve got for you on the latest Live Delay comes from the band’s performance at the Beetle Bar in Brisbane back in December 2012, when they played alongside the likes of The Keep On Dancins, Ghost Notes and Sucks. Make sure you tune in to get a full appreciation of the power and wonder of Nikko.
