Khuda

Leeds’ Khuda are an instrumental post-rock duo that create brooding, angular music with some heavy rock overtones but for the most part they build complex layers of guitar with the aid of digital delay and a loop station, all over some pretty sturdy drumming….

Beehoover

Hailing from Germany, this Teutonic duo of Ingmar Petersen (bass and vocals) and Claus-Peter Hamisch (drums and vocals) deal in far out experimental drum and bass and by that I don’t mean the repetitive washing machine on a spin cycle dance music variety. I…

Hotel Wrecking City Traders

The name Hotel Wrecking City Traders (or HWCT to make life a lot easier) has been bandied around for a while now but as they come from way down under in Australia their music may be less familiar to most of you. The obvious…
