Episode 27: Secret Birds; TheHead

2041712059_0bc04d1f8b

On episode 27 of Live Delay, we fold back the covers on Brisbane’s SECRET BIRDS. We also revisit the epic THEHEAD set that we played earlier in the year.

SECRET BIRDS
Recorded and mixed by Will Clarke.
Recorded at The Waiting Room, Brisbane.

Digital sound manipulator Damon Black heads Secret Birds, a musical project that shrugs off definition. It teases us with pyschedelia, draws us in with ambience, and takes us to some mythical plane of existence. Will Clarke captured Secret Birds in all its glory at The Waiting Room in Brisbane back in January 2013 as part of the well-respected Sonic Masala gig series. It’s pretty special and worth staying up past your bed time.

THEHEAD
Recorded in 2005 by Nao Anzai at the Rob Roy Hotel, Melbourne.
Mixed by Nao Anzai, mastered by Scott Herbert.

Playing a mixture of krautrock, synthetic beats and the odd bit of post-rock craziness, Sydney’s TheHead have existed since 2002 and made up of Ben Turly, Tom Taylor, Scott Herbert and Danny Heifetz. This set was recorded this set way back in 2005 at the Rob Roy Hotel in Melbourne although only featured Scott Herbert and Tom Taylor.

YIS
Recorded in 2012 by Robbie Adams at The Tote, Melbourne.
Mixed by Robbie Adams, 2012.

Melbourne fuzz monsters, YIS, have been kicking it around the traps for a number of years now, bringing their sweaty pysch rock being a staple of the Melbourne music scene since 2009. Made up of brothers Simon, Andrew and Matt (plus non-relative Brownyn) the band released the well-received ‘Kingdom of Fuzz’ in 2011. This set was recorded by Robbie Adams at The Tote in Melbourne in March 2012 and features hit after hit of fuzz-madness, including an excellent version of ‘(I Feel) Repulsed’.
