Episode 120: White Walls; Secret Black

10927830_970518622961077_2598679849184305981_o

White Walls
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at the Greenslopes Bowls Club on the 14th of March, 2015.

Starting in the early-2010’s, White Walls been tagged as as a Shoegaze band, but I think that’s discounting the whole picture. The 3-piece band consist of Dylan Black & Fuj McLean on guitars, and Rory Heane on Drums. The lack of a bass player is not missed in this trio’s sound, as the thunderous guitars more than make up the frequency band that makes you bob your head. Releasing two EP’s in 2011, and their 2012 self-titled debut, they’ve slowly but surely been winning new followers that come in contact with their sound. Recently they were up in Queensland for the Sonic Masala Festival and we managed to capture the raw essence of the band live.

Secret Black
Recorded & Mixed by Cameron Smith.
Recorded at the Waiting Room on the 31st of May, 2014.

Secret Black is an instrumental group consisting of Adam Cadell (The Scrapes), Jamie Curran (Ghost Notes, Built From Sticks), Adrian Marsh (4ZZZ’s Rusted Satellites, Ghost Notes) and Dave Ryan (Dempefka). This recording is currently the only widely available release of any of Secret Black’s music, and is taken from a live performance at Brisbane DIY space The Waiting Room back in May 2014. The one-off performance was curated in support of Ambitious Lovers, who had reunited for that particular night, and which set was featured on Episode 115 of Live Delay.

Episode 116: Love Of Diagrams; God Bows To Math

safe_image.php-2

Love Of Diagrams
Recorded & Mixed by Paul Maybury & Joe Fairburn.
Recorded at PBS FM Studios, Melbourne on the 3rd of February, 2015.

Forming in 2001, Love Of Diagrams started out as an instrumental band, releasing their debut album ‘The Target Is You’ in 2003 and then slowly bringing vocals into the fold with their follow up EP ‘We Got Communication’. 2007 saw them sign with massive independent label Matador Records and the worldwide release of ‘Mosaic’ their 2nd album to very kind critical reviews. There was a 6 year gap between their 3rd album ‘Nowhere Forever’ and their brand new album ‘Blast’, which came out last month on Bedroom Suck Records.

God Bows To Math
Recorded & Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Waiting Room on the 27th of April, 2013.

Taking their name from a song on The Minutemen’s ‘Double Nickels On The Dime’, Auckland’s God Bows To Math are fairly regular visitors to Australian shores. Proudly DIY, the New Zealand trio have performed their unique noise adventures at over 200 performances during their six year career. Their self-titled debut hit the shelves in 2011 and they’ve just released their brand new record ‘Brighter Futures’ which they recorded with Nick Roughan, who’s name you’ll find on records by classic New Zealand artists such as Bailterspace, The Clean, Headless Chickens & Die! Die! Die!. This performance from The Waiting Room in Brisbane back in April 2013 shows every angle of this exciting – and noisy – rock band.

Episode 115: Ambitious Lovers; Baptism Of Uzi

887036_10152013668116931_7353113057685994363_o

Ambitious Lovers
Recorded by Cameron Smith.
Mixed by Cameron Smith.
Recorded at The Waiting Room on the 31st of May, 2014.

Ambitious Lovers, having formed 10 years ago, have only been active for three of those years, with most of their activity happening between 2007 to 2009, releasing 3 EP’s and a full length LP, having broken up the same night they released their last EP ‘Winter Got Warmer’. Midway through 2014, an invitation to perform was a chance to recreate their awkward and raw songs. It was their first gig in 5 years and played to small but extremely appreciative crowd at the Waiting Room. Though they still turn up playing occasionally in 2015, you can find Joel, who sings and plays ukulele, active in Spirit Bunny and Feet Teeth.

Baptism Of Uzi
Recorded by Anthony Cornish.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at Phoenix Public House on the 21st of April, 2012.

The band we are going to hear next are called Baptism Of Uzi. No, its not a gang of priests with machine guns, but a 4-piece band from the Eastern part of Geelong. Borrowing influences from bands such Black Sabbath and melding them with metronomic Krautrock rhythms of Can and Kraftwerk, their sound has seen them share stages with the likes of Michael Rother from Neu, Wavves & TV On The Radio, and produce two releases, their debut mini-album, titled Cassette, and the Stray Currents EP. This particular set was recorded back in 2012 in a inner-city Melbourne venue that existed for only 9 months, and captured the band transitioning from a quintet to a quartet.

Episode 114: Go Go Fish; Spirit Bunny

gogofish2

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.

Episode 112: Sparkspitter; The Royal Artillery

avatars-000117869871-4u31g9-t500x500-2

Sparkspitter
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Cameron Smith.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane on 12th of September, 2014.

Created from the ashes of other Adelaide bands finding their feet around 2011,
Sparkspitter was an experimental outlet for Thomas Capogreco & Rohan
Goldsmith. Challenging themselves to create fully fleshed songs with lap steel
guitar loops as a basis, Matt Barlow came along to complete the rhythmic picture
by picking up Bass duties, and the band was formed. Their music have seen
them tour the country and play with such eclectic artists, such as Thee Oh Sees,
OM, Love Of Diagrams & Civil Civic.

This particular set we are about to hear was recorded at The Waiting Room in
Brisbane last year after their BigSound Music Conference appearance.
This was a special one-off set before going back home to Adelaide.

The Royal Artillery
Recorded & mixed by Eoin Clements & Sep V.
Recorded at 4ZZZ Studios, Brisbane on the 21st of February, 2015.

Starting up in the late 2000’s, The Royal Artillery have become a powerhouse band on the blues rock circuit. Led by guitarist Zed Charles, their sound is reminiscent of early Hendrix days, with a dash of 90’s riffage. Slowly but surely, they’ve had a solid following that seems to grow strength to strength show by show. This is a band you need to watch out for.

Episode 110: Danyl Jesu; Cedie Janson

Danyl Jesu

Danyl Jesu
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The The Bearded Lady, Brisbane on 5th of Decemeber, 2014.

The first cab off the rank is a set from Brisbane duo Danyl Jesu. They’ve only
been around for a year, but have already put out an EP, last year’s “Celebration”,
and are currently in the USA recording their debut album with Phil Elverum, he
of Mount Eerie fame.

Cedie Janson
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane on 12th of September, 2014.

Cedie can be seen donning instruments for acts such as Naked Maja & Workshop, but for this particular show, he’s left to his own devices and paints an intense soundscape with very little tools.

Episode 98: Cracked Actor; Morning and The Sleepy Kids

Cracked Actor
Recorded by Branko Cosic.
Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane. 19th September 2014.

Cracked Actor are a Canberra group that have been active since late 2010. They play electronic pop that twists and turns with meticulous vigour. Their songs call to mind the more glitch-y, rhythm-driven material from Radiohead’s most recent albums. This year they released their latest single ‘Hollywood’ in anticipation of their forthcoming 2015 album on HellosQuare. It follows last year’s single ‘Lemon On Your Lover’ which saw remixes by Raus, Sam King and Reuben Ingall, among others.

Listen to Cracked Actor’s latest single, ‘Hollywood’, over on bandcamp.

Morning and The Sleepy Kids
Recorded by Dusty Anastassiou.
Mixed by Dusty Anastassiou.
Recorded at Long Play, Melbourne. 14th November 2014.

Penelope Skliros and Anastasia Loupis have been making music under the moniker ‘Morning and The Sleepy Kids’ since 2004. Over that time the band has been fleshed out with many collaborators; Christian Bizzari of The Girlfriend Pillow popping in repeatedly. In 2010 Melbourne label Albert’s Basement released a collection of their recorded works from 2004 – 2007. This year, saw the trio reunite for a couple of very special select shows in Melbourne.

Check out Morning and The Sleepy Kids on the Albert’s Basement web page.

Episode 81: Heads of Charm; Narrow Lands

headsofcharm

Heads of Charm
Recorded by Cam Smith.
Mixed by Cam Smith.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane. May 30th 2014.

Heads of Charm have been active as a live band from April 2013, after initially beginning as singer/guitarist David Gagliardi’s studio project. It’s been a while since that debut EP and the band has seem some line-up changes, but they’re stuck to the tried and true power-trio formation. Most recently they’ve released a single entitled ‘Spain is on a Roll’, that’s the reason that the Melbourne lads were recently touring the east-coast for. They’ve covered a lot of ground for a band that still doesn’t have a debut LP but something tells me they’re in not much of a hurry; all their effort has gone into creating a frenetic live show that’s equal parts intelligent and abrasive.

Narrow Lands
Recorded by Mark Ryan and SLAM Sound.
Mixed by Cam Smith.
Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, Brisbane. June 21st 2014.

Narrow Lands are four gentle people that like to make violent music. When you consider their 2013 debut album ‘Popular Music That Will Forever’ it’s hard to top that extremely apt description. They’re from Australia’s most expensive city, Sydney, and they’re not afraid to take aim at Triple J and the notion of consumer targeted music. Employing the low rumble of the baritone guitar and pitting it against jazzy riffs and industrial embellishment, Narrow Lands fulfil all manner of AUS rock prophecies from the likes of The Scientists to Dead China Doll.

Listen to Narrow Lands’ debut LP on the Tenzenmen Records Bandcamp.
