Kooii

The music of Kooii is unique, resting readily in a morphing Australian way of life. Their songs click with many, and the music is held dearly. Kooii breathe, roll and transform. They are a seven-piece collective with a ‘rootsy-tribal-groove’ that is both urban and earthy. Reggae, Jazz and Latin are realised in the sound. The group started some two and a half years ago as a duo of trumpeter Peter Hunt and percussionist Anthony Forrest (who both also play guitar). It has since grown to its present form.

machinoir

machinoir is a solo noisegrind project from the Blue Mountains, Sydney, Australia. The works of Dillon Ashcroft and collaborators combine elements of modern black metal with harsher grind and noise elements to create chaotic and dense songs.
Forgoing bass guitar and live drumming, songs utilize programmed drums without falling into the sterile one-tempo four-four sound of other bands.
The band has been likened to Genghis Tron, The Locust, Pig Destroyer and Discordance Axis, however there is a more lo-fi approach reminiscent of Mechagodzilla and Xrin Arms.
