Making
Recorded by Josh Watson
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at Crowbar, Brisbane, 5th September 2015.

Founded in 2010, Making have been refining their strain of destructive chaos and complex melodies for the past five years, touring it around Australia and New Zealand and gaining fans with every step. Their debut album “Highlife” was released in September 2015, after almost a year in record label limbo.

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

Last 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.

Soma Rasa

Soma Rosa
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Brisbane Powerhouse, Brisbane. 6th September 2014.

Soma Rasa was formed in 1997 by brothers Bill & Dan Hazard along with Shannon Jessop. Over their career, they’ve released three albums and have shared stages with the likes of Moby, Fatboy Slim, Roni Size & Regurgitator.

In 2005, they met with legendary LA hip-hop act Digital Underground to record
the single ‘Say What You Say’, which was met with critical acclaim and lasted in
the AIR charts for 12 whole weeks.

Kindergarten
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane. 22nd August 2014.

Recorded last year at 4ZZZ’s Happyfest by Andrew McLellan, the duo in question are Mino Peric and Josh Watson. Between them, they’ve played instruments with the likes of No Sister, Sewers & Dag. This particular show was quite special as the Kindergarten was created as an experimental act exclusively for Happyfest, and sees Mino & Josh taking their first forays into electronica with two turntables, a drum machine and a synth.

Bandito Folk
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane on 20th of November, 2014.

Bandito folk have been kicking around Brisbane for a few years now, the guys are all former students at QUT – where they all met – and have clearly formed a tight bond playing music all day every day. Josh Tuck is the main songwriter of the group, his songs take on a unique blend of melancholic pop and alt country. In a market saturated by groups that ride the line between more mainstream rock and indie-folk arrangement it certainly helps that Josh has a strong voice and he’s backed by group of musicians that really know their stuff. Technically speaking, they have a lot to offer. Of course technicality isn’t everything and the songs that Josh has been writing over the past few years really reflect on not only his own experiences but experiences, thoughts and anxieties that we all share. For those reasons it’s really not that surprising th at they’ve ended up on legendary Brisbane label Valve.

Episode 104: Shovels; Black Deity

Shovels

Shovels
Recorded by Matt Hall.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane. 5th December 2014

In late 2013, Michael Beach, Adam Camilleri and Peter Warden formed Shovels. It’s a befitting name to accompany the songs that led to their self-titled debut, which received a limited run of 100 copies. One of those tapes made its way to Homeless head honcho Richie Ramone who didn’t waste anytime in releasing the album only a few months later. The album is a hot ride of searing guitar lines that I’m not sure whether to call blues or psych, paired with thundering bass and vicious wild drums. It sounds a bit like what would have happened if feedtime smoked more pot.

Buy/Listen to Shovel’s debut self-titled record over at the Homeless Records bandcamp.

Black Deity
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Mansfield Tavern. 13th December 2014

They sound like Motorhead by way of Venom P. Stinger, or, maybe it’s more Melvins via Black Sabbath. Black Deity hail from Brisbane, and I’ll let you draw your own comparisons on that. In 2014 they released a debut 7” thru Sydney label Sexy Romance Records, a metaphorically thick slab of pure dank rock. Although the influences are prominent, to dismiss Black Deity as a nostalgia act would be a genuine disservice if I ever heard one.

Check out some of Black Deity’s releases over at their bandcamp.

Episode 101: Yes, I’m Leaving; Unpeople

Yes, I’m Leaving
Recorded 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.

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.

Episode 94: Madboots; Fatti Frances

Madboots
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at HappyFest, Brisbane. 22 August 2014.

Madboots is the hip-hop project of Brisbane sisters Dewi and Angelica, with James Vincent taking care of the DJ duties. The trio and their posse make loud and fast beats while traversing the electronic dance spectrum. Their material ranges from dubstep to old school NY but with Raps about bin-diving and Birdemic spat as hard as anything on Ill Communication.

Fatti Frances
Recorded by Andrew McLellan.
Mixed by Andrew McLellan.
Recorded at HappyFest, Brisbane. 22 August 2014.

Fatti Frances is the stage name of Raquel Solier, who’s been making experimental down-tempo RnB after returning to Melbourne after some time spent overseas. Before taking to electronic instruments drumming was Raquel’s focus; She played in art-punk band Jemima Jemima and also did a tour in Swedish indie heartthrob Jens Lekman’s band.The first material under the guise of Fatti Frances was a debut self-titled 12” record was self-released in 2011, which was followed by a cassette called ‘Sweaty’ containing more abstract material. This is where pop meets the fringe. Fatti Frances sounds half Mariah Carey, half Inga Copeland, half Maria Minerva and half Julee Cruise.

Episode 75: Breakdance The Dawn

xwave

Breakdance the dawn is a DIY experimental music label that originated in the Blue Mountains but has been based out of Real Bad Music in Marooka for the past several years. Matt Earle is the man behind the tapes and CD-Rs that have received overseas acclaim from alternative music press like Wire Magazine as well as a hoard of fans through Glasgow’s Volcanic Tongue mail-order distro.

There’s been a steady stream of releases over the past few years and soon they’ll be celebrating the 200th release. Real Bad Music is the venue / house that Matt and his girlfriend Nicola, it’s also known as the magic mile house made famous from the iconic photo of Ed Kuepper standing in front of the old signs from when it were a brothel. Real Bad has picked up from where regular experimental music events like Audiopollen, Disembraining Machine, New Improvised Music Series left off in the constant ebb and flow of available venues for ‘that sort of sound’.

For this episode we’ve featured just a couple of the many bands that have appeared on Breakdance the Dawn. A big bunch of talented individuals across 2 bands, but it’s only just the tip of the iceberg.
