Dirty Three

Violinist Warren Ellis, guitarist Mick Turner, and drummer Jim White are Dirty Three - an instrumental experimental rock 'n' rock/folk trio considered one of the most prestigious Australian acts. In their beginnings, in Melbourne, Australia, in 1993, the trio played very often and had residences at some of Melbourne's smaller pubs. In the years that followed, they played other Australian cities, and toured relentlessly overseas. Now since the three live apart from each other in Paris, Melbourne, and New York, they only occasionally regroup to record and tour.

Tortoise

Tortoise's almost entirely instrumental music defies easy categorization. The group gained significant attention from their early career. The members have roots in Chicago's fertile music scene, playing in various indie rock and punk groups. Tortoise was among the first American indie rock bands to incorporate styles closer to krautrock, dub, minimalism, electronica and various jazz styles, rather than the standard rock and roll and punk that had dominated indie rock for years.

Bronze Chariot

http://www.myspace.com/thebronzechariot Bronze Chariot came together in the early months of 2008 settling on the line up of Garrett Cooper, Scott Williams, Benjamin Cooper and Michael Elijah. The list of former bands was long and included; This City Dynamite!!!, Artax Mission, Donkey Kong, Sun, The New Mutiny, Eyes Like Black Stars, Egypt and more. Early sessions could be described as monstrous jam gatherings inspired by the decades of stoner rock and doom noise we were delving into at the time.

Mogwai

Mogwai are a band from Glasgow formed in 1995. They compose lengthy, mostly instrumental guitar-based pieces in the style of post-rock, usually focused around the elaboration of a single theme, and are known traditionally for their quiet/loud dynamic, defined bass riffs, and an eminent ambient sound, sometimes dark and sometimes grand. Although frequently referred to as post-rock, the band have revealed in interviews that they despise this categorization, insisting that their sound bears little resemblance to pioneers of the genre, such as Tortoise.

Hazards Of Swimming Naked

Buy "our lines are down" at hazardsofswimmingnaked.bandcamp.com! Hazards Of Swimming Naked are an instrumental group originating from Far North Queensland (Innisfail/Johnstone Shire). Their music is a reflection of their surrounding environment and isolated townships and of the imposition of society on this environment and the way people interact with it. This sound has drifted over the years from dense terrorscapes to late night grooves to dreamy, serendipitous currents and paranoid messes.

Decortica

"Check into Decortica’s Love Hotel and experience the pleasures of a masterful album and allow your jaw to fall." -The NewReview (rating: 5/5) Decortica is an alternative/progressive rock act from New Zealand. Following on from the 2008 debut “A New Aesthetic,” the band’s second album “Love Hotel” was released August 2010. As evidenced by the lead single “Monster in a Pretty Dress,” this a modern rock album that sees the band explore several new sonic and technical territories. The end result is a precisely crafted balance of the band’s renowned explosive performance and mature song writing.

Grails

Grails is an American <a href="http://www.last.fm/tag/instrumental" class="bbcode_tag" rel="tag">instrumental</a> rock band from Portland, Oregon. Initially going by the name "Laurel Canyon", guitarist Alex Hall, drummer Emil Amos (also of 'Holy Sons') and second guitarist Paul Spitz garnered positive reactions following their first show, played on a whim. Portland musicians Timothy Horner (violin) and Bill Slater (piano/bass) later joined the group to record their first EP.

The Duchesses

The Duchesses sound is the manifestation of four musicians from very different backgrounds. Their broad spectrum of influences is evident in their atmospheric music, which transcends arbitrary genres. Not satisfied with following trends, the Duchesses have forged their own unique sound. Their debut album guides listeners through a dark sonic landscape of resonating guitars, bold rhythms and dynamic vocals, all surging into intricate and aggressive harmony.
