Episode 35: DZ Deathrays; The Garbage & The Flowers


This Live Delay update comes courtesy of my hotel room in Istanbul, Turkey – where street riots and clashes with authority seem to be on the agenda. Still, these incidents pale in comparison to the important events happening on Live Delay back in Australia. This is what episode 35 has in store for you lucky duckies.

Recorded and produced by FBi Radio, Sydney.

Dynamic two piece from Brisbane hit their stride in recent years, graduating from intense house party gigs to the world stage after UK tastemakers NME cast their gaze upon DZ Deathrays. Well known for their intense and legendary house party gigs and their outrageous music videos, they released the well received debut record Bloodstreams in 2012.

This live set may be slightly more sombre than the usual DZ Deathrays experience, but still profiles many of the best angles of their recent work. Provided to Live Delay by our friends at FBi Radio in Sydney, this is a live set not to be missed.

Recorded at The Bridge Club, Brisbane, August 2012.

The Garbage And The Flowers are Yuri Frusin and Helen Johnstone and they’re known for the off kilter pop music that comes out at strange angles. Originally hailing from Wellington, New Zealand, the duo moved to Sydney about a decade ago and have remained fairly quiet since – emerging every now and then to remind fans of their esoteric loveliness at the most opportune times. I swear ‘Love Comes Slowly Now’ from their opus Eye Rind As If Beggars is one of the most beautiful songs ever penned. Tune in to here them at their marvellous best.
