Screwtape

Walter Gross and Bizzart form Screwtape. An experiment in lost and found sound and noises and samples of some of the weirdest and just most obscure shit I've ever heard. But one thing I've learned about Walter Gross and one thing I've trained myself to do, is to listen to the beats and melodies he hears in his head, and when you break down those walls that tell you what you're listening to is just noise, you'll hear it too.

Ashley Naylor

Ashley Naylor is best known as the vocalist, guitarist, and main songwriter for the Australian mod/pop group Even who have recorded four albums and numerous EPs and singles since the mid-'90s. While Even encompass all of the best aspects of the heavier side of the mid-'60s British Invasion (think The Who, The Kinks, The Move, Rolling Stones c. 1964-66) and more recent purveyors of that sound such as The La's, Stone Roses, and Oasis; Naylor's solo debut is more sublime, bringing to styles of vintage Neil Young and the Rolling Stones when Keith Richards was hanging around with Gram Parsons.

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.
