Yes I’m Leaving:

Live at Sonic Masala Fest, Greenslopes Bowls Club, 17 August 2019

Yes I’m Leaving were formed in Sydney, and have been haunting the traps of the harbour city for quite a while now, with their first demo cassette being released in 2006. Their first self-titled album came out in 2010 and was followed by another four over the next decade, often recorded on the quick in small rehearsal spaces.

Recorded by Duncan Adamson
Mixed by Finn Diggles

Cassowarys:

Live at The Bearded Lady, West End, 27 July 2019

Cassowarys have been kicking around Brisbane for a few years now, cycling through lineups and genres before landing on their particular flavour of psychedelic rock. In 2018 they released their debut EP, “Cheers For The Boogie”.

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.

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.
