Sydney's very own hard-biting rockers; C.O.F.F.I.N are a four piece, full force, boogie rock ‘n’  roll band featuring snarling lead vocals from behind the drum kit, high voltage lead guitars, and steady rhythms that keep you stomping along. Last year saw the release of their highly esteemed fifth studio album entitled ‘Australia Stops’ followed by a string of sold-out headline dates across Australia and North America. Driving diverse pace and spit-shined lead melodies is what make’s ‘Australia Stops’ the band’s most powerful work to date, and it is with sheer power and infectious energy that makes C.O.F.F.I.N shows an eruption of sweat, compulsive groove and rummage.
Hungry for the road, 2024 see’s C.O.F.F.I.N reaching new audiences over European/UK tour dates in May and June, in support of the new album ‘Australia Stops’. New cities, off the beaten track, C.O.F.F.I.N are coming for you.

After selling out two nights at Komedia in March, we welcome back the queens of the dance floor!

“Tell them what you want - the time will soon be gone…”

Like the lyrics from their latest single C’est si Bon (it's so good!) that features on the album, the honeyed harmonising trio - consisting of the three strong voices of Piya Malik (El Michels Affair staple feature, and former backing singer for Chicano Batman), Sabrina Mileo Cunningham and Nya Gazelle Brown who front the band - stay true to their word. These women have something to say and they are not afraid to play with the medium. Leaning into their “boundary busting discodelic soul” (The Guardian), their flawless harmonies twist and writhe, capturing listeners hearts with buttery vocals, fat funky basslines, catchy hooks and up-tempo grooves.

Silver oozes with quirk and the album is an adventure through 16 songs - a double sided LP that opens with an incantation and ends with the title track that will lull you into a dreamscape with a locked groove of silver noise

Like the savvy gardener times their tasks with where the moon is at, we wrote the beginnings of songs like we were tilling the soil ~ according to our creative ebb and flow. Then, as you would sweeten the soil with lime, we sweeten the chords with melodies As the seedlings grow up, so to the songs evolve.

 

Some like to let their tomatoes grow untamed, others like to prune the excess growth. Certain songs receive more care like sweet peas being woven up a trellis and fed and mulched - others are let to run rampant; a widespread pumpkin vine, self mulching and abundantly productive - like a long Larry Levan groove.

 

Babe Rainbows latest garden starts with Inner Space. It’s about the all of a sudden growth, in whichever the context you care to put it in. The zucchini of this garden

Smash the machine refers to the techno centric conundrum of our time that can cast a spell upon us. The antagonist to nature’s way in the garden.

 

The glory vegetable in a garden is the pumpkin and so All The Power is the pumpkin of this garden. The bands Masanobu Fukuoka, Jono Ma of Jagwar Ma brought some cosmic compost and the microbes for this one and Inner Space.

We're hosting two very special nights with WITCH at The Hope & Ruin!

"After establishing a following in Zambia as well as in Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, and Botswana in the 1970s, the band slowly dissolved in the Eighties and eventually stopped playing altogether. Chiseling for amethysts in a dirt pit in Zambia, co-founder Emmanuel “Jagari” Chanda, now 70, thought his days of performing were over." Rolling Stone

WITCH (We Intend To Cause Havoc) were the biggest rock band in Zambia in the 1970s and spearheaded a new genre dubbed Zamrock, fusing influences that ranged from the Rolling Stones to Black Sabbath and James Brown and mixing them with traditional African rhythms and bush village songs.

 

Jagari is the charismatic sole surviving original member of the band. As Zambia’s economy stagnated and the country buckled under the AIDS crisis, WITCH fell apart. Jagari retreated to a life of quasi-anonymity as a university music professor before being wrongfully arrested during Zambia’s toughest hour. Now a man in his 60s, he spends his time mining gemstones hoping to strike it rich, until very recently the band being just a nostalgic memory of his youth.

The Mystery Lights story begins in 2004 in the small town of Salinas California when friends Michael Brandon and Luis Alfonso - whose shared fondness for groups like The Mc5, Velvet Underground, Dead Moon, and The Fall (just to name a few) - decided to join forces and craft their own brand of unhinged rock and roll. From there they spent the better part of 10 years touring relentlessly before migrating to Queens, New York in 2014.

 

The buzz soon caught the attention of Daptone Records execs who were in the beginning stages of launching a new rock-centric imprint, Wick Records. Though a rock band at heart, the parallels to what Daptone Records had traditionally looked for in their Soul artists was undeniable. While keeping the hard-hitting approach of the first LP, Too Much Tension finds the group digging deeper into their well of eclectic influences, enriching their sound without echoing the past.

 

Mixing the eerie, insistent synth sounds of groups like The Normal and Suicide, the energy and swagger of punk’s golden age, the pop sensibility of The Kinks, and the stark, deliberate execution of Television.

Press shot Tramhaus by Elmo Taihitu.jpeg

 

Tramhaus is the daring postpunk sensation from the restless and ever-innovative city of Rotterdam. In the
span of its relatively short existence, Tramhaus has managed to make a name far beyond the borders of
their hometown. Marked by their joyous and energetic experience, the band has proven to be able to convey this message both in live and recorded settings. The music of Tramhaus feels like a soundtrack to
a vivacious, mysterious, and dangerous story. There is no room to lean back as the band takes you with
them in a drag race full of emotions and euphoria driven by streamlined, fiery songs mixed with fragile and abstract tones. This whole spectacle is fueled by the near-symbiotic relationship between the five band members.

Minami Deutsch.JPEG

Minami Deutsch is a Krautrock band from Tokyo.
These self-described “repetition freaks” cite psychedelic rock and minimal techno as guideposts, but—as evidenced by a band name that is Japanese for “South Germany”—they’re really obsessed with krautrock.

Formed by Kyotaro Miula in 2014, they got their start playing live music on the busy streets of Tokyo. This lead to their participation in Krautrock Night, a party hosted by Tokyo Psych Fest, and later a tour of Taiwan. In September, 2015, they released their first record through the English cult label Cardinal Fuzz Records.
At the same time, Minami Deutsch also released their album on cassette/digital-download through Kikagaku Moyo’s label Guruguru Brain. This release received a lot of positive attention from review sites around the world such as Echoes and Dust and Psychedelic Baby Magazine, along with many blogs and Japanese based music websites as well.

After supporting Say She She back in March, Kit Sebastian return with their warm Turkish Psych-pop.

Their unique sounds weaves a psychedelic tapestry of global influences, vintage synths and melancholy élan from the beaches of Bahia to the streets of Istanbul and Paris. A joyous expression of vibrant grooves and sophisticated lyricism that transcends boundaries, borders and social-cultural preconceptions. Steeped in artistic references, from dusty records to world cinema, their new album Melodi represents a considered maturation of the psychedelic jazz-inflected sound that introduced Kit Sebastian to the world on debut album Mantra Moderne in 2019.
