Episode 27: Secret Birds; TheHead


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.

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.

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.
