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 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.
