Info for Live At The Forum
The live album was recorded to analogue tape during the band’s sold-out four night stand at the beloved Melbourne venue last November.
Says Sam Teskey, “We thought we’d try and record a live album with a tape machine, which is madness, but that’s our format so it’s the way we wanted to do it.”
Live At The Forum features songs from the band’s two critically acclaimed albums, Run Home Slow (2019) and Half Mile Harvest (2017), as well as a special cover of John Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’.
The decision to release a live album was a natural one for The Teskey Brothers, who’ve spent the past few years captivating audiences around the world. Their non-stop touring schedule has included sold out shows across Australia & NZ (20+ sold-out dates in 2019 alone), New York, LA, San Francisco, Denver, Toronto, London, Dublin, Manchester, Glasgow, Paris, Amsterdam, Zurich and more. The band have also played to mammoth crowds at festivals such as Latitude Festival (UK), Firefly (US), North Sea Jazz (Netherlands), Bonnaroo (US), and at home, Splendour in the Grass, Meredith Music Festival & Byron Bay’s Bluesfest, to name a few.
The Teskey Brothers are a rare musical gem. Honouring that old school Motown sound and working it into something of their very own, the band have received widespread acclaim for their albums Half Mile Harvest and Run Home Slow. A raw combination of soul and blues, the band’s sound has warmed the hearts of listeners everywhere with it’s melancholic, analogue tones.
Onstage singer Josh Teskey’s smoked whiskey voice defies expectation as the band around him hold an irresistible groove. Their undeniable live shows wowed audiences around the world, leaving them infected with soul and blues.
The Teskey Brothers
The Teskey Brothers
formed around 2008 in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne comprising siblings Sam and Josh Teskey (guitars, vocals), Liam Gough (drums) and Brendon Love (bass). Sam and Josh discovered American soul music of the 1960s via their parents record collection and were encouraged into music at school. The group spent their formative years jamming and playing in pubs and backyard party jams, honing their sound into a refreshing blend of soul and blues.
Their debut album was self-produced at their home studio in Warrandyte and captures the essence and sound of 1960s and 1970s recordings with very much an organic sound base, using analogue recording techniques. The songs are beautifully written and contain warm hooks, resulting in an album that is unique but also strangely familiar.
The lead single “Pain and Misery” was quickly picked up by Community Radio and the video clip has passed more than 45,000 views. “Shiny Moon” showcases a cool slide guitar introduction with a mellow groove, sounding almost JJ Cale or Eric Clapton in style and feel. “Louisa” kicks off with a foot tapping handclap, solo voice and then moves into a groovy drum beat and harmonica solo to kick the groove along.
The album closes with the standout track “Honeymoon” that runs for more than 10 minutes, allowing the full feeling of the instruments to flow through from killer guitars, organ, drums, bass and harmonica, building to a climax, then dropping away to allow the husky and soulful vocals to come back in again. Then half way through the song, the tempo and mood picks up with the Hammond organ taking centre spot as the band jams, and then finishes with a Pink Floyd style finish with the Hammond running on with additional instruments, including horns taking it out through to the end as the sound slowly fades away.
This album contains no booklet.
