Johnny Cyrus and His Band of Ghosts is a loose association of like-minded musicians specialising in what they can only call Cowboy Drone - Dark Americana played by Shoegazers with a strong focus on drone (repetition), minimalism, improvisation and entering trance state. There is a very ambient feel. This is natural since the band prefers to focus on atmosphere in preference to music.
The Francis Wolves are an 8-piece instrumental funk juggernaut from Brisbane. It’s true, the FWs ain’t your typical suit-wearing funk band: their style is a melting pot of genres, delivered via an "all in" fuzzed out wall of sound. Ferocious horns and a brooding rhythm section, matched by ominous organ and infectious congas will transport you to a Sergio Leone film set by way of the dance-floors of Africa.
