Recorded at The Foundry, Brisbane, 14th January 2017

Some Jerks are a garage/surf rock band that formed in Brisbane in 2010.

Inspired by the girl groups, and garage rock of the 60’s, and once quoted as “sounding like Sleater-Kinney covering the Shangri-las”, they released their self titled EP, in 2011 and followed that up with their debut album ‘Buddy Rich Made Me Cry’ and sophomore release ‘Strange Ways’ in 2016.

This particular set was recorded as part of West End Festival at an event called Live To Tape, which saw 3 acts local to the West End/Kurilpa area gather in one night to perform live to 2-inch tape at Underground Audio. These recordings were engineered and mixed by in-house engineer Chris Brownbill, who also owns the studio.

Recorded by Reuben Aptroot
Mixed by Luke Thomson
Recorded at Sonic Masala Festival, Brisbane, 13th August, 2016

If you mix the vocal stylings on The Cure’s Robert Smith and Beth Orton with the rawness of early output from Bloc Party, you arrive at the sound that Sweater Curse output.

This particular set was captured at one of their first shows and are a band to watch out for in 2017.

Recorded at PBS FM Studios, Melbourne, 25th August 2016.

Hailing from Lismore on New South Wales’ North Coast, Tralala Blip are a 5 piece ensemble armed with devices that create electronic pulses and beats that feed into reverberation units that produce lush swells of sound that mesmerises the senses in the live arena with visuals accompanying the audio to complete the experience.
The group was founded by Randolf Reimann who ran electronica workshops for young people of mixed abilities in 2007. Three of the workshop participants wanted to continue making music and came together to form Tralala Blip, which has taken from the local halls of Lismore to the Sydney Opera House and around Europe.

EP 177: Babaganouj; The Goon Sax

Babaganouj

Recorded by Tim Roberts
Mixed by Tim Roberts
Recorded at The Foundry, Brisbane, 20th of March 2015.

Starting in 2011, Babaganouj have become an absolute songwriting powerhouse in the last 5 years releasing too many singles and EP’s to name, as well as touring the east coast more times than we can keep track of. Their garage pop sound is always dripping with the glowing sunbeams you can expect from a Brisbane band, but what makes them unique is songwriting and vocal duties are shared equally between the three members Harriette Pilbeam, Ruby McGregor, and Charles Sale. They’ve even taken the extra step in this direction by recording three separate EP’s for release this year, with each one written solely by one member. And although they may share the songwriting duties, their songs are always catchy, upbeat, and there to keep the good times rolling.

The Goon Sax

Recorded at The Woolly Mammoth, Brisbane, 25th of June 2016.

Like their name would probably indicate, The Goon Sax are a teenage trio who write songs bout being an awkward adolescent, while still being that awkward adolescent. Their songs cover everything from home haircuts, ice cream, and not being able to work at target. Put simply they have found a way to turn the mundane pieces of growing up in suburbia and write catchy, jangly indie pop songs about it.  Their debut album ‘Up to Anything’ has seen them tour nationally and internationally, and even scored great reviews from international tastemaker publications Pitchfork and NME.

Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 13th December 2015.

Hailing from Brisbane, The Steady As She Goes is the sole brainchild of Tal Wallace, who created the moniker in 2012 out of the ashes of his previous band ‘The Smokestack Orchestra’. Striping right down to a solo outfit, The Steady As She Goes could be described as doom folk, with Tal surrounded only by amplifiers and a Drum Machine. His debut album ‘Dangerous & Dead’ was released in early 2014 and received many unanimous praises from local music rags and peers alike.

Orphans Orphans

EP 144: PALMS; DEAD FARMERS

PALMS
Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Foundry, Brisbane, 20th August 2015.

Palms are the rockin’ noise brats from Sydney who have been leaving a trail of destruction wherever they go, in the audio sense, that is. The four piece is made up of ex-members of Red Riders, John Steel Singers, Stature::Statue and Straight Arrows. Born kicking and screaming into the music world in 2012, They released their first album ‘Step Brothers’ on Spunk Records in 2013 and have just released their sophemore effort ‘Crazy Rack’ on Ivy League Records. Their brand of noise rock has a summer-y tinge to it, perfect for the season we’re about to enter.

Dead Farmers
Recorded and Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at Greenslopes Bowls Club, Brisbane, 14th March 2015.

Hailing from Sydney, garage-punkers Dead Farmers sprouted up through the cracks of Australia’s largest city’s underbelly and began rocking audiences in the mid-2000’s. Very reminiscent of the Detroit rock scene that produced bands such as The Stooges and MC5, they self-recorded their latest album ‘Wasteland’ straight onto half-inch tape free of reverb and post-recording effects, and sent it off to mastering to be improved upon.
