Recorded at The Underdog, Feb 8 2014.

Some are already calling 2014 ‘the year of Blank Realm’ and why not? They’ve received glowingly positive reviews for their new record, Grassed Inn, from the likes of Pitchfork; Mojo; The Wire and The Guardian.

The Brisbane quartet are taking their psychedelic slacker-rock worldwide and all good plans have to start somewhere so they started last week at The Underdog in Brisbane. The live recording team were there for an album launch full of drunken revelry, a celebration of all things realm. The crowd were dancing all around the racket, at one point one lucky punter found themselves clinging to the lighting rig for dear life.

Supports on the night were local garage-pop brats Thigh Master, frown-rockers Sewers, Sydney’s electro/experimental heroine Lucy Cliché and living-room rave band Four Door.
