Recorded at The Zoo, July 2013.
Barbiturates are Roland Hlavka and Elliot D’arcy, two musicians known for their work in Brisbane psych outfit Cobbwebbs. This particular project emerged from eclectic rehearsal room jams that didn’t quite fit the CV of their former band – and thus the side project was born! Still channeling their DIY roots, Barbiturates sway between pop and psych, adding in generous additions of almost trip-hop sounding beats. They’ve release a bunch of music, but 2013’s Shades was the first actually put out in some kind of material form.
This performance comes from their 2013 appearance at 4ZZZ’s Happy Fest at The Zoo in Brisbane. Enjoy!

Recorded in West End, August 2012.
Kitchen’s Floor play pop documenting the angst-ridden narratives of Brisbane suburbia. Led by Matt Kennedy, the group are well respected nationally, with their second record ‘Look Forward To Nothing’ garnering critical praise when it was released back in 2011.
This set comes from 4ZZZ Radiothon in 2012 out at West End and features a good mix of both old and new. It’s enlightening so you better effin tune in.
