Darts

Recorded & Mixed by Harvey O’Sullivan
Recorded at VOLUMES 2016, Brighton Up Bar, Sydney, 27th August, 2016

Darts formed around 2008, initially just as a two-piece — Angus Ayres and his brother Andrew — in the Victorian city of Bendigo. They ballooned out to a five-piece in the early 2010’s, adding Ally Campbell-Smith, Paige X. Cho and Jessie Fernandez to fold. They have a melancholic, aggressive sound that feature loud-quiet dynamics that exhibit their unique tapestry of influences. One listen will induce flashbacks to early Modest Mouse, Pixies, The Breeders and Dinosaur Jr, all wrapped up in one frenetic punch that’s impossible to listen to without being totally absorbed.

In 2015, Darts started to gain a wider audience when they released their album ‘Below Empty & Westward Bound’ on Rice Is Nice Records.

Recorded at Sonic Masala Festival, Brisbane, 13th August, 2016

Consisting of members Marnie Elizabeth Vaughn on the drums and Nathan James Martin on baritone guitar, Hannahband self-describe themselves as “Emo punx”, and have been clawing up the ranks of music blog hype lists every time they play a show, regardless of location. They have three full-length albums under their belts, with their 2016 record ‘Quitting Will Improve Your Health’ displaying how loud they can get when firing on all cylinders. Although this set displays a different side of the band, turning down their instruments to display the softer side of their sound.

Episode 114: Go Go Fish; Spirit Bunny

Go Go Fish
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at the Greenslopes Bowls Club as part of the Sonic Masala festival on the 14th of March, 2015.

What started out as a new project between self-confessed music geeks Scott Mercer & Ash Shanahan in 2011, has blossomed into a harmonious four-piece garage-pop outfit that goes by the name of ‘Go Go Fish’, adding Angela Hibbard and Murray Bowler to the fold a year later to fill out their desired sound. Sighting Sonic Youth as an influence, which you’ll get to sample in this particular set, they also wear the sound of other Brisbane pop-rock bands such as Iron On and Screamfeeder on their collective sleeves. They’ve just released their second EP, titled ‘If I Go Down I’m Taking You With Me’. It will also be their last release, as some of the members will be jetting off overseas to pursue other endeavors.
But thou shall not be sad, but shall celebrate the incredible sounds of Go Go Fish.

Spirit Bunny
Recorded by Branko Cosic
Mixed by Cam Smith
Recorded at The Waiting Room on the 13th of September, 2014.

Spirit Bunny are a relatively new group that formed in 2013 and have already started catching the attention of numerous blogs and have even had their music featured in a documentary. Not bad for a group in its infancy. The 3 members of the band, Kate Thomas, Cameron Smith and Joel Saunders, create a sound that is dance-worthy, but not as you’d expect. Armed with a drum kit and two Commodore 64’s using music software from the 80’s, certain key commands trigger musical notes that evoke 8-bit emotions and cold distorted melodies with bombastic drum hits, Spirit Bunny are a group that must be seen to be believed.
