Episode 7: Tape/Off; The Horrortones; The Mouldy Lovers

Tape/Off

Lucky seven! And Live Delay episode seven is going to be a really special event indeed. We bring you three great and very different Brisbane bands in their element – live on stage!

TAPE/OFF
Set 1 recorded by Sky Kirkham and mixed by Branko Cosic.
Set 2 recorded by Murray Paas and mixed by Cameron Smith.

We bring you not one, but TWO sets from one of Brisbane’s loudest bands – Tape/Off. The foursome whose fondness of loud pavement-esque rock has with a twist has seen them etch out a unique identity within their hometown music scene over the past few years. They’re also pretty nice dudes. Set 1 features three songs recorded at The Primitive Room in Spring Hill, Brisbane, whereas Set 2 shows three different songs from a gig at The Zoo in late 2012.

THE HORRORTONES
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012.

We’re proud to present Brisbane’s very own supergroup – The Horrortones! Made up of members of Texas Tea, The Vegas Kings, The Giants of Science and many other prominent local bands, The Horrortones beat out the soulful sounds of the sixties in a way even alliteration can’t do justice. Frontman Pete Collins may actually sound like Wilson Pickett and the rest of the band sound like The Commitments but with added sexual organs (and organ). And we’ve got them live here on Live Delay! Grouse!

THE MOULDY LOVERS
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2011.

The Mouldy Lovers are a young and vibrant Brisbane gypsy instrumental band with a  wicked set of humour. They do a mad cover of the theme song from Tetris (unfortunately, not covered in this set) and have skills to pay multiple bills (not your rent however). Check out this neat live set we captured back in 2011 in this episode of Live Delay.

Episode 5: Velociraptor; Feathers; Adalita

velociraptor

Woah! We’re at episode FIVE already? Time really flies when you’re having fun. And trust me, this episode is killer. We’re highlighting three outstanding lives sets in this episode from Velociraptor, Feathers and Adalita.

VELOCIRAPTOR
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012.

Velociraptor are a chameleon beast sent to destroy your ideas about rocking and rolling. This TWELVE piece band are purveyors of the infectious and masters in the art of stagecraft – they even took out 2012 Hot 100 with their viral pop song ‘Cynthia’. We feature a snippet of their tremendous performance at 2012’s Rock To Transmit. Trust me; it will blow your face off!

INTERVIEW: Jeremy Neale of Velociraptor.

FEATHERS
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012. 

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.

ADALITA
Recorded and mixed by Matt Denver of D4 Studios
Produced by John Robinson for BeauFM.

I really don’t need to waste your time spruiking the credentials of Adalita Srsen. The charismatic singer of Geelong’s legendary Magic Dirt released a fine debut solo record way back in 2011. Our friends at BeauFM were present to record part of her set at BigSound 2011 and Live Delay is pleased to give some digital radio love to some of Adalita’s sublime live performance.

Airing details: First aired via Zed Digital, 8-9pm, Friday 8 February 2013.

Episode 1: Anonymeye, Keep On Dancins, El Motel

In episode one of Live Delay, we present three short sets featuring Brisbane artists.

Anonymeye
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012

Part electronic, part acoustic, the music of Anonymeye is difficult to accurately pigeonhole. Anonymeye, known as Andrew Tuttle, to his friends is partial to warping his acoustic guitar sounds with a raft of electronic signals, building pleasant and atmospheric noises and weaving them into a grander musical narrative.

Find out more about Anonymeye.

INTERVIEW: Andrew Tuttle from Anonymeye

Keep On Dancins
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012

Formed in 2008, Keep On Dancins practice a style of music that blends shoegaze with the noisy pop of the Jesus and Mary Chain, all underpinned by waves and waves of reverbed guitar. Hell, they even have a dedicated tambourine player. Their 2011 debut record, The End Of Everything, found critical acclaim both locally and throughout the Australian music press.

El Motel
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012

Our next set if from another Brisbane band called El Motel. A duo in the vein of early Black Keys, El Motel infuse their blues stylings with a dynamic rock vigour, and have been quietly building up a strong local following partly due to their powerful stage presence and accomplished musicianship.
