General Information.

Low Hums are from Seattle Washington and began playing out in 2009.

“I had been touring a lot, the US and especially Europe as a member of Earth and also with Marissa Nadler and I wanted to start a band when the touring cycle was over” – Sanoj

Fueled on a steady diet of amphetaminized Velvet Underground, Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, Can, Sun Ra, Beefheart, Blue Cheer. Low Hums employ a twin guitar tapestry and a fiery rhythm section. “The name ‘Low Hums’ is from a dream, and I wrote down ” low howls ” in my notebook. Somehow that became Low Hums. It was the sound of wolves howling at night.” Sanoj

While there were other versions of the band that date back to 2009, the current lineup of Sanoj Sniksah, Crystal Powwwers, Rolly Fingers, and Miles ‘Baja’ Panto is by far the finest yet.

Sanoj and Panto first met years ago while their former bands shared a common rehearsal space.  After a couple of floods and a fire, a new rehearsal space was found that came complete with a available drummer. Rolly Fingers was in. Lastly Sanoj and Rolly recruited Crystal Powwwers while Baja Panto was in Old Mexico. Upon his return to the north, the lineup was complete.

Night Magic Wine was recorded in Seattle by Jack Endino, who Sanoj had known for many years. An approachable guy, Jack is well know for having recorded bands such as Nirvana, Screaming Trees, TAD, Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Murder City Devils, and is also holder of a Latin Grammy.

We decided to ask Jack to record and produce this record for a couple reasons. He likes guitars and drums and all things rock and roll. This batch of songs really seemed to be a good fit for him. Jack is also penchant for letting a band find their sound organically. He didn’t let us get too hung up on the little details and told us to leave the mistakes in. We actually ended up mostly with first or second takes on all the basics. Even when we did do more, we ended up with the earlier versions. Night Magic Wine is a lyric from US101. It’s basically about being in a blyssful yet aware altered state of mind.

Shine Rock bonus tracks were recorded in a old church turned recording studio in the small fishing town of Anacortes Washington, home of Karl Blau and Mt Eerie. “It’s a big echo-y room with not a computer in sight.. all analog” Our buddy Randall Dunn, mixed and produced it. Randall has done a lot of work with Earth, Sunn 0)), Chelsea Wolfe, Black Mountain. It was originally a EP on its own. Kozmik suggested we add it to Night Magic Wine and we thought that was a great idea.

One reviewer, after hearing the new single ‘Too Early Too Tell’ described the bands sound as ‘psychedelic, swagger and southern glam!’

“They were molten and melting down at all times—with twin-guitar blowtorch jams inflected”

“This sounds like Lou Reed in the best way” – Jack Endino ( of Too Early To Tell )

Low Hums have played sweaty packed college parties, high desert roadhouses, regional festivals, dive bars, all ages bakeries turned into venues, beaches, generator parties and everything else in between, all while touring the West Coast & Southwest. Hopefully we can
finally start coming to EUROPE !

General Information.

Hazemaze is a 70’s infused stoner-rock band hailing from the middle of Sweden, surrounded by lakes and forest. In the depth of Mälardalen, the three piece summoned the forces of fuzz and heavy riffing in the spring of 2016. A combination of early doom-rock and psychedelic elements with a modern touch is what creates the bands heavy fuzz sound.

In the fall of 2017 they went up north to the city of Falun to record their first full length album. The self-titled studio album will be released in 2018 through Kozmik Artifactz.

General Information.

The Ugly Kings are four powerhouse blues rockers drawing influence from an eclectic and dynamic musical background. They offer a powerful injection of energy and emotion to the modern rock scene, formulating what can only be described as power blues. The catchy riffs and foot stomping rhythm lay the foundations for the deep reaching and soulful emotive vocals.

Having 1 mini-album (Of Sins) under their belt already, they are thrilled to sign with Kozmik Artifactz for the release of their debut full length album in early 2018. The Ugly Kings have supported Airbourne on their successful sold out east coast Australia tour in January 2017 with great reviews. They also supported Rival Sons in 2016 on their first Australia headline side-show in Melbourne during the Black Sabbath ‘The End’ World Tour.

“What they delivered was something that I was not ready for. A sound that is almost indescribable. It’s as if a mash up of all my favourite artists had been put into a blender and formed this delicious power sludge bluesy stoner rock. Elements of the classics such as Led Zep, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sabbath, Danzig and a touch of Bowie were mixed in with the modern sounds of The White Stripes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Kylesa & Wolfmother. I was in heaven!” – Rogue, Inc.

“Loud, heavy, slightly-sludgy classic rock meets blues with a modern bend, played by a band that swaggered about the stage with a distinct, but subtle, air of cool. By the end, Sydney was more than happy to learn words on the fly and sing along when the front man held his mic over the mosh. The Ugly Kings are well-versed in the art of restraint, they know when to move and make the crowd get on their feet, and when to step back and let the music do the talking.” – Australian Guitar

“It’s not often you see a band have the crowd so excited and receptive by the second song in the way The Ugly Kings do with such an original sound. Only to be described as The Ugly Kings!” – Ryan O’Keefe (Airbourne Drummer)

“Great show! The Ugly Kings have really got their own thing going on and it rocks! I love all the dynamics, pushing and pulling and then always smashing it out. Great intensity and power.” – Joel O’Keefe (Airbourne Frontman & Lead Guitarist)

“Thick, groove induced chords, deep baritone vocals and a harden-the-fuck-up ethos” – Phantom’s Way

‘Promised Land, a four-minute beast that sounds like the Rival Sons and the Graveltones going head-to-head with John Bonham and Jim Morrison. With multiple riffs and deft twists and turns, it sounds fantastic..’ – SonicAbuse

For fans of The Doors, Jack White, Black Sabbath, The Black Keys, Royal Blood and Rival Sons.

General Information.

His Masters Voice call their style of music “The Devils Blues”. Listen to their 2014 album ‘Possession’ and you will hear influences from the greats of classic HEAVY rock but with a contemporary energy and relevance.

Musically and visually the band possess an inventive and original signature style that showcases the strength of their collective song writing, yet allows their individual talents to show through. His Masters Voice put everything into their live performance. To them, their audience comes first and that audience grows in number and dedication with every show.

Reviews:

“…Full of Led Zeppelin swag, they are smooth and easy on the ears. It’s hard not to get swept up in the moment and it’s never easy to fully capture to readers how great of a show they put on. Vocalist, Jesse Sorensen has the blues running through his veins, an old soul in a young man’s body that clearly lives and breathes what he does and it shows. A tight band that sound years above their average ages…”

Muzic.net

“Vocally supreme, Lyrically superb and the music is big time kick ass. Listening to them takes you on a journey like no other, both calming, trippy, hard hitting, fast paced and edgy. A must have in your music collection…”

Rock Bandom

“… I’m sick of it (blues) sounding so generic… (His Masters Voice’s music) it’s a breath of fresh air that I think has worldwide musical value”

– Zorran Mendonsa (Producer/Engineer)

The 13th Floor’s Tove Partington had this to say…

“… Everything you ever wanted from the love child of metal and dirty blues has come true with His Masters Voice. After only five shows, they have already made it to my ‘bands you must see before you die’ list…”

13th Floor

NZ Musician Album Review by Stu Edwards

“While His Masters Voice has harvested a classic sound, Follow Me Down dishes up a modern flavour that could comfortably stack up next to modern icons such Black Stone Cherry or Mastodon. Bonus live track Lucid Dream is a weighty eight minute insight into what the band are all about”

NZ Musician

NZM Fresh Talent – Clovis McEvoy

“Like a smouldering volcano, His Masters Voice have heaved into Auckland’s live music scene – and with just a two-week turnaround from stepping into the studio to the release of their debut EP, it would appear the band could erupt anytime…”

General Information.

With a sound built on fuzzy drone and swirling keyboards, Buried Feather’s live shows have built a loyal following, drawing regular comparisons to Dead Meadow and Spacemen 3. Their 2013 debut album was a woozy, atmospheric affair that was well loved on community radio right around Australia. The band toured regularly behind the record, including shows with NYC’s Endless Boogie and San Diego psych-metal titans Earthless.

Buried Feather are set to release their second full-length, Mind of the Swarm, out this February. Recorded by Paul Maybury (King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard) and mixed by Nick Franklin (The Grates, Deep Sea Arcade), the new record is a more dynamic realisation of the band’s hypnotic sound. First single “Dust” finds them solidly in kosmische territory, with a head-rush of phased guitars swirling around a locked groove. The record throws up some interesting surprises, with druggy rave-ups and dark, synth-driven slow jams sitting alongside the fuzzy rock tunes.

General Information.

Friendship are a groovy power trio from Oslo, Norway. The band was formed in 2010 and consists today of Fredrik Skalstad on drums and vocals, Sander Eriksen Nordahl on guitar and Martin Morland on bass. The gel that binds the trio is their years of experience and discipline to their craft as musicians. As a result, Friendship have forged a sound that is tight, groovy, dynamic and adventurous; a sound that is unmistakeably Friendship.

Taking influence from the psychedelic vibe of the late 60’s and the heart and soul of the early 70s, Friendship bring something reinvigorating and fresh to the table of retro-rock bands. These influences become apparent when you experience Friendship the way they were meant to be heard, live. Feeding on the energy of the moment, Friendship soar seamlessly through cosmic jams, no performance ever the same, effortlessly demonstrating their craftsmanship and joy of music.

In 2011, Friendship released their first recording, a limited hand numbered 7″ single. Their debut full length followed in 2014 receiving an extremely positive embrace from the European underground rock scene.

Four years later and the band prepare to release “Ain’t No Shame” their highly anticipated follow up album, recorded and mixed at Studio Paradiso with Christian Engfelt (Big Bang, Cato Salsa Experience). “Ain’t No Shame” is a more mature record than their debut, from the opening riff you can feel the time, love and passion that has gone into creating this beautiful record. Fans of Friendship will not be disappointed, and those new to the Friendship train will enjoy the ride!

Ain’t No Shame” will be released in May 2018 via infamous psych and stoner rock label, Kozmik Artifactz.

General Information.

Some of rock’s greatest bands share an interesting quality: Soul. Cream, The Stooges, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Afghan Whigs and Vanilla Fudge all played glorious rock at concussive volumes but were also swinging to an unmistakable beat, filtering their thunderous bluster through a soul crooner’s sensibility. Heavy Glow qualifies for that exclusive roll call.

Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine is potent proof of Heavy Glow’s deep influences. Heavy Glow constructs Pearls & Swine on a foundation of fuzz-fueled hard rock, appointed with psychedelically-tinted blues and beautifully textured washes of Motown/Memphis soul. Simultaneously, a punkish verve cattle prods the retro rock vibe squarely into right now.

For this album Heavy Glow teamed with infinitely talented producers Michael Patterson (Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, Beck, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, P. Diddy, Notorious B.I.G., Duran Duran) and Nic Jodoin (BRMC, The Morlocks, Nightmare Air). Patterson and Jodoin’s concentrated methodology resulted in an album that is black hole heavy and as cohesive as the ’89 Detroit Pistons.

Pearls & Swine and Everything Fine (with brilliant cover design by renowned artist Darren Grealish, whose work includes gig posters for Queens of the Stone Age and the Melvins and graces the walls of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) features Jared’s totally now perspective, his innate ability to focus his love of rock/soul/psychedelia through a contemporary lens to create Heavy Glow’s modern classicism, placing the band into the sonic realm shared by QOTSA and Foo Fighters.
