Holy Balm
Recorded and mixed by Andrew McLellan, 2012

Psychedelic electric jams, punctuated by drum machines, acoustic percussion and waves of synth, Sydney’s Holy Balm bring their minimalist dance music to the Live Delay stage, ripping it up in front of a packed house at 4ZZZ’s Get Happier Fest back in August 2012.

Oliver Tank
Recorded and mixed by Sky Kirkham, 2012

The music of 20-something Oliver Tank revels in glitch, dubstep and ambiance. It’s soaring chill-out music with an Australian twist. Based in Sydney, Tank was lucky enough to win the 2011 Northern Lights competition run by FBi radio, and visited Reykjavik, Iceland to play the Airwaves Festival.

Bare Grillz
Recorded by Liza Harvey, 2011

Bare Grillz, purveyors of lo-fi droning pop, are a three piece from Newcastle, NSW. Using minimalist approach with lots of organs, repetition and often incomprehensible voices, they weave alluring yet anxious landscapes.

Alps of New South Wales
Recorded by Liza Harvey, 2011

Chris Hearn, known as Alps of New South Wales, records stark and beautiful bedroom pop songs using guitars, vintages synths and soft padded percussion. Haunted by reverbed, these might be musically straightforward tunes, but they display a maturity only a talented songwriter can muster.
