Chakra Efendi:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 28 November 2019

Chakra Efendi grew up between Nambour on the Sunshine Coast and Indonesia, drawing inspiration from their mother’s appreciation of post-punk and their father’s passion for hip-hop and EDM. Barely out of their teens, they’ve been remarkably prolific, with an impressive string of singles released in the past two years along with the EP “Until The Children Grow Old”. Efendi has gone from recording solo in their bedroom to leading an accomplished, full-fledged band, as you are about to hear.

Live at Crowbar Black, Fortitude Valley, 22 November 2019

The four members of Beddy Rays – Jackson Van Issum on guitar and vocals, Bradley O’Connor on bass, Lewis McKenna on guitar and Ben Wade on drums – all met in primary school and have been inseparable ever since. Taking their band name from their home, Redland Bay, they released their debut EP, “Lost Found Beat Around” in 2017. A string of singles have followed, along with countless shows including a tour supporting Tones And I.

Timi Temple:

Live at Greaser, Fortitude Valley, 21 November 2019

Timi Timple is a committed DIY musician who runs his own ship and puts out a consistent string of releases from his home base in Sydney. Since 2017 he has released the “PHUZZ BOY EP” and a dozen singles, the latest of which, “Fa-Fa-Fading” came out in April.

While Timi writes, records and plays just about everything himself, he was backed on this tour by drummer Cat Hunter. A few backing tracks may also fill out the sound, but as you’ll soon hear Timi’s exuberant guitar playing is the real live deal, as is his charismatic ability to make friends with a rowdy new audience.

This set is notable in that it was the first Live Delay recorded at Fortitude Valley’s Greaser bar, which before the COVID-19 lockdown was a popular dive-style watering hole beneath the Elephant Hotel popular with local punters due to its regular live gigs and free entry.

Cigány Weaver:

Live at Yonder Festival, Mary Valley, 29 November 2019

Brisbane-based Romani-style jazz ensemble Cigány Weaver have been working hard to win over audiences with their spectacular live shows for several years now, including spots at the Woodford Folk Festival, Caloundra Music Festival and MONA’s Dark Mofo.

The band’s debut, self-titled EP was released in 2016 and was a live recording of interpretations of song from the history of film. Their debut album from 2019, also self-titled, showcased both original material and a few older standards.

While normally a six-piece, this set recorded at Yonder Festival’s Wunderbar Stage featured the band as a slightly stripped-down four-piece, with Jo Davies on vocals, Gareth Mewes on violin and Rory Dollard and Conor McDonald on guitars.
