Festival Review: Woodford Folk Festival, Day Five - Woodfordia, Queensland (31.12.13)

Stormchasers chase the afternoon clouds away from the audience's minds with their quick stepping soul and funk hybrid sound. It's an exuberant performance from the 7-piece band that gets the dancers moving and even convinces my weary body that it needs to get up to jig along.

Live Review: StormChasers + His Merry Men + Astrid and the Asteriods - Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane (13.11.13)

Astrid and the Asteroids start the night of with their smooth lounge speckled with stardust and science flowing through the venue. It's a slightly otherworldly mix of calm jazzy sound, wonder and occasional scientific info blurbs with backing guitar, plunking keyboard and sad trumpet all marched by drums.

Live Review: The Mouldy Lovers + Bullhorn + Stormchasers + Captain Dreamboat - The Zoo (18.01.13)

Captain Dreamboat kicked the night of funky fun off with aplomb, easing into the evening with a laidback brand of funk by the way of reggae and soul. The guitars and trumpet played off each other’s melodies, giving a warm languid tone. But they were driven forward with urgent drumming and soaring, swooping gospel vocals, eventually matching the pace in the third racing song. Propelled by a blizzard of drum hits from the stage’s back, the vocalist took the challenge and revealed the sheer power and poise of her stunning, soulful voice. The band eased back, with the next song built around a striking guitar rhythm underlaid by a dancing beat from the bass and drums before morphing into a free-flowing finish.
