Guiguisuisui

Guiguisuisui is an alt rock band from Changchun in China. A regular rotation of players line-up revolving around Dann Gaymer. The baseness of the sounds emanates from a hybrid home constructed instrument which marks out the territory that is Guiguisuisui. Listening to the material you kind of get the feeling that you are listening to a travelling circus […]

Grenouer

Grenouer is a metal rock band from St. Petersburg in Russia comprising  Andrey Ind (vocals), Alexander Motor (guitar), Igor Buzzy (guitar), Danny (drums) and Daemon (bass). I always struggle with my geographic placement on Russia as I have them in the Asian section, which is sort of right as most of the landmass lies in Asia, but most of […]

Tzvika Force

Tzvika Force is the vehicle the Tel Aviv, Israel based solo composer Tzvika Lorber to deliver his dark rock. On hitting play the ears are caressed with top quality compositions.

.gif is the experimental ambient electronic duo of Weish and Din from Singapore. Floating embers of sound like ashes rising from a fire waft into – and disappear slowly out of – earshot. Half-captured yet demanding of focus, whilst in the foreground burns an ever present beat that rattles the edges of the brain in to a state […]

Grey Shack

Grey Shack from Chennai in India is blues rock band comprising Rohan Sen (Vocal), Vikram Vivekanand (Guitar), Mario Rohan (Bass) and Vinay Ramakrishnan (Drums). Reflecting on life around them, as you would anticipate from a blues centred band, Grey Shack presents the combustible surroundings in a telescopic framework. The material oozes of oak smoked barrels and whilst they are immediately of […]
