Gold Class

Recorded and mixed by Reuben Aptroot
Recorded at Against The Grain Fest, Brisbane, 27th August 2017

Starting in Melbourne in 2014, Gold Class has had a rapid rise to where they are today. They have released a 7 inch, written, recorded and released their debut album ‘Its You’ via well known tastemaker label Spunk Records here in Australia, as well as scoring an international release through Felte Records for the US and Europe.

2017 saw them follow up with the release of Drum. Produced by The Drones Gareth Liddiard, their second album builds on the post-punk sounds established on Its You, with a new found forward momentum.

Kitchen’s Floor (Solo)1510850_762708607194733_9175939855662998103_n

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

Kitchen’s Floor was formed in 2007 by Brisbane based musician Matt Kennedy. Amongst various EP’s, 7″ singles and live albums, the band have released 3 full length studio albums to date – Loneliness Is A Dirty Mattress (2009), Look Forward To Nothing (2011) and Battle Of Brisbane (2015). These recordings have been released through independent labels such as Siltbreeze, Bedroom Suck, R.I.P Society, Negative Guest List, Quemada, Easter Bilby, and Breakdance The Dawn.
In this particular set, Matt had come back from touring Europe in solo mode and continued the trend for this particular show.
Many songs from the Kitchen’s Floor discography appear in this set in a stripped down form and you can hear Matt compensating for the lack of extra guitars with his melodic playing.

The Bear Hunt

Recorded by Branko Cosic, Mixed by Reuben Aptroot.
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 13th December 2015.

Originating from the stifling humidity of Townsville, North Queensland, The Bear Hunt moved down to Brisbane late 2012 with one EP in hand, and thought it fitting to re-record many of the original EP tracks to better reflect the band’s changing sound in the form of their first full length album “TBH [To Be Honest]”, which was released in October 2015. Their sound is raw and disheveled but somehow tight, full of heroic stoner groove riffs. True garage rock mingled with the occasional touch of blues, country and psychedelia.

Episode 37: Barbiturates; Kitchen’s Floor

barbiesPrepare thyself! Live Delay’s continues the tradition of top quality live music in episode 37 of the show with two interesting sets from Brisbane – BARBITURATES and KITCHEN’S FLOOR.

BARBITURATES
Recorded by Murray Paas
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Zoo, July 2013.

Barbiturates are Roland Hlavka and Elliot D’arcy, two musicians known for their work in Brisbane psych outfit Cobbwebbs. This particular project emerged from eclectic rehearsal room jams that didn’t quite fit the CV of their former band – and thus the side project was born! Still channeling their DIY roots, Barbiturates sway between pop and psych, adding in generous additions of almost trip-hop sounding beats. They’ve release a bunch of music, but 2013’s Shades was the first actually put out in some kind of material form.

This performance comes from their 2013 appearance at 4ZZZ’s Happy Fest at The Zoo in Brisbane. Enjoy!

KITCHEN’S FLOOR
Recorded by Sky Kirkham and Ellie Freeman.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded in West End, August 2012.

Kitchen’s Floor play pop documenting the angst-ridden narratives of Brisbane suburbia. Led by Matt Kennedy, the group are well respected nationally, with their second record ‘Look Forward To Nothing’ garnering critical praise when it was released back in 2011.

This set comes from 4ZZZ Radiothon in 2012 out at West End and features a good mix of both old and new. It’s enlightening so you better effin tune in.

This is a very special episode of Live Delay featuring New Zealand cult group The Garbage And The Flowers who played a rare live set in Brisbane in 2012. We’re also featuring Brisbane’s own Kitchen’s Floor, playing live at the 4ZZZ BaZZZaar in West End in around August 2012.

THE GARBAGE AND THE FLOWERS
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at The Bridge Club, Brisbane.

The Garbage And The Flowers are Yuri Frusin and Helen Johnstone and they’re known for the off kilter pop music that comes out at strange angles. Originally hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, the duo moved to Sydney about a decade ago and have remained fairly quiet since – emerging every now and then to remind fans of their esoteric loveliness at the most opportune times. I swear ‘Love Comes Slowly Now’ from their opus Eye Rind As If Beggars is one of the most beautiful songs ever penned. Tune in to here them at their marvellous best.
