tumblr_lw2xf10qiX1qc70luo1_r1_500

We jump back about 30 episodes and take in the live chops of Feathers, Dune Rats, and Outerwaves.

FEATHERS
Recoded and mixed by Sky Kirkham
Recorded at The Alhambra Room, Brisbane.

Feather’s debut record Hunter’s Moon (2011) was one of the Australian music highlights of that year. This all female dreamy rock group conjure pop narratives with distinct psychedelic angles. Feathers can be gloomy, they can be transcendental and one could rattle off half a dozen influences here (Shop Assistants, The Shaggs, and so forth), but it really does the band a disservice to think of them simply as the sum of their influences. This set was recorded at the Alhambra Bar in Fortitude Valley Brisbane back in March 2012.

DUNE RATS
Recorded by Sky Kirkham.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.

Holy mixtapes batman, this Dune Rats set is full of mind-blowing awesome. For the uninitiated, Dune Rats are a surfy-garagy duo from Brisbane with a fondness for crazy party hijinks. The 4ZZZ live recording team were present to capture the band demonstrating their wide ranging live musical powers at the 2012 Rock to Transmit at The Primitive Room in Brisbane, and by the beard of Zeus, it was enjoyable. Fortunately, we can share it here with you on Live Delay. Listen in for ‘Pogo’ – it’s a winner.

OUTERWAVES
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham.

Our next dose of live tunes is from electronic artist Dominic Stephens – who occasionally operates under the moniker Outerwaves. You may know Stephens from other groups such as Oh Ye Denver Birds and Nimble Animal. Outerwaves, however, is a solo project where Stephens can embrace his pop and hip hop interests in a bit more of an intimate fashion.

Episode 18: Sky Needle; Slug Guts; Outerwaves

Sky Needle

Sky Needle


Episode 18 of Live Delay goes a bit left of field – swimming in the obscure, the esoteric, occasionally coming up to breathe when the moment suits. In this episode we hear from SKY NEEDLE, captured live in Brisbane at 4ZZZ’s Get Happier festival back in August 2012. Also, the episode plays host the sludgy and alcoholic punk of SLUG GUTS, as well as the ambient noise of OUTERWAVES.

SKY NEEDLE
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Henry Mills.
Recorded at the Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane.

Experimental noise with rock show dynamics, Sky Needle take a post-industrial chainsaw to song making, creating new, often challenging but always engaging, musical clamour.

Originally hailing from Brisbane, the The primary protagonists in the group include Sarah Byrne, Alex Cuffe, Michael Donnelly, Ross Manning, and Joel Stern and they play a range of homemade instruments that are almost too bizarre to judiciously describe. Amongst the collection, the band feature percussive instruments welded together from bike parts, air pumps that plug into digital effects pedal and other twangy instruments constructed from found parts.

The band released the well-received Rave Cave in 2012 and they managed to play the 4ZZZ Get Happier in August of the same year where we were fortunate enough to record them live on stage.

SLUG GUTS
Recorded and mixed by Liza Harvey.
Recorded at Totally Autumn, Newcastle, 2011.

We showcase a quick and nasty set from Brisbane punk rock outfit Slug Guts. It’s short and to the point, but you’ll get a good taste of what they’re about – rollicking noisy guitars overdubbed with a sense of alcoholic dread. It’s great stuff. These couple of songs were recorded some time ago at Totally Autumn in 2011 in Newcastle.
