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.

Yes, I’m Leaving
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane. 1st November 2014.

This year Yes, I’m leaving released their fourth album, Slow Release, on Melbourne’s Homeless records and in doing so they join a cast of some of Australia’s finest gritty noisey rock bands. The Sydney three-piece are well known for their pulverising live shows, in fact their latest album was recorded at their rehearsal studio, and that’s usually a good indication of a band that take their live sound very seriously. You can’t mention Yes, I’m Leaving without mentioning the Albini influence that runs through not only their music but their entire approach to being a band.

Buy Yes, I’m Leaving’s fourth record, Slow Release, over at the Homeless Records Bandcamp

Unpeople
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Donovan Miller.
Recorded at Shedstock, Corndale, NSW. 7th June 2014.

There are 6 members of Unpeople – no one really knows why, but it works. Unpeople are pretty peculiar in the world of punk. Sean Campion, who is best known for Multiple Man (a synth duo with his twin brother) fronts the group. Every show they play he stares directly at the crowd with this sick grin on his face, his eyes as wide as. It’s a particularly jarring look when paired with a bumbag and a parrot sweater. Behind him stand some blokes who’ve played in Occults, Woodboot and Last Chaos – a solid dump of tough.

Buy/Listen to Unpeople’s demo over at their bandcamp page.
