Tiny Migrants
Recorded by Mark Ryan and SLAM Sound.
Mixed by Will Clarke.
Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, Brisbane. June 21st 2014.

Tiny Migrants are a self-proclaimed group of ‘space garage pirates’ who come from the planet ‘Magicdreams’, or at least that’s what they said in one surprisingly candid interview with FBi Radio. Don’t let the act fool you, they’re not a prog-rock band; they just don’t take it very seriously. Making music that is. What they do create can be filed-under psych influenced garage-pop or to take a leaf out of their book I’ll say, “They’re the sound of The Kinks getting a Chinese burn while plunging into the depths of a dunk machine.” All of the members are active in other groups in Brisbane such as Woodboot , and a few make up the ranks of Brisbane’s favourite garage rock band that can’t fit in a Maxi Taxi – Velociraptor.

Per Purpose
Recorded by Josh Watson.
Mixed by Josh Watson.
Recorded at The Underdog, Brisbane. April 25th 2014.

Per Purpose have come a long way since supporting Beaches back in June, 2013, we brought you that performance in episode 39 of Live Delay. Since then the group have released a cassingle, a debut LP and a follow-up single on a new Sydney label called Béchamel Records. They’re a band that work very quickly. Their cycle of ‘write, perform, record, discard and repeat’ moves at near break-neck speeds. You won’t be hearing any songs from that debut LP from October 2013 that’s for sure. Singer Glen Scheanu proclaims that the new set is the new album, the vision of which is already clear in his mind. Matt Ford has taken over drum duties for the band after the departure of Bedroom Suck Records main-man Joe Alexander.

Listen to Per Purpose’s most recent release ‘Bathing Suit Sand’ on the Béchamel Records Bandcamp.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 8-9pm, Friday 18 July 2014.
