Style Like Revelators
Style Like Revelators
STYLE LIKE REVELATORS are known for their heavy hitting, electrifying take on bluesy rock 'n' roll. Their music has been compared to bands such as The White Stripes and The Black Keys while their onstage performance is reminiscent of classic bands like Aerosmith and The Rolling Stones. With a vintage yet fresh sound, and a look to match, pleasing audiences comes natural for this band. Also, don't be too surprised if you hear a cover or two while you're at a STYLE show. The guys don't hide their influences in their performances. They've been known to cover the all-time greats including Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and The Faces. As well as indie bands like Cold War Kids, The Colour, and The Dead Weather. Style Like Revelators is serving an original style of blues-rock.
Ape Machine
Ape Machine
The name APE MACHINE is a nod to the days of reel-to-reel magnetic tape audio recording; a fitting moniker for the heavy-hitting quartet as the band plays through vintage tube amplifiers and lays down its songs using exclusively throwback quality studio equipment. With a heady mix of animal aggression and technical precision, APE MACHINE's music carries an organic depth and warmth rarely heard since the time of rock's glorious early years (or your Dad's bad ass record collection) infused with an exceptional modern sensibility. When the mystical lyrics of vocalist Caleb Heinze lock in with the band's stone-cold groove, APE MACHINE demonstrates an earth-shaking ability to rock. A true four-piece, the group has been called "a rock and roll band with a finger on the pulse of the 70's and their asses firmly in the present" and "real heavy-psych for the iPhone generation" that delivers "true guts and glory rock and roll."

Blending equal parts Rock n’ Roll, Blues, Stoner Rock and Psychedelia, Ape Machine is out to melt faces and pound the apathy out of otherwise jaded listeners with a wall of heavy rock n’ roll tones unheard since the days of bell bottoms, long hair and blaring tube amplifiers.

Ape Machine's mission is to combine intense melody, cutting riffs and blistering live improvisation. Where many bands rely on meticulously rehearsed, just-like-the-record-parts, Ape Machine provides a live experience that is as unique as each evening it shares with an audience.
Rare Monk
Rare Monk
Rare Monk is a collective of five local musicians that have been playing in and around Eugene and Portland for the past two years. With a sound that has continued to evolve since the band's formation, their repertoire combines elements of pop, rock, psych, jazz, and funk in a unique, cohesive synthesis. In 2009, Rare Monk won the KWVA Battle of the Bands and has since performed a number a shows including the 2009 Eugene Celebration, 2010 Bike Music Fest, and the 2010 Whiteaker Block Party. The group just recently finished up their first EP, Falconer's Folly, and plans to return to the studio as soon as possible.
Been Obscene
Been Obscene
Been Obscene, founded 2008 in Salzburg, Austria, are tremendous versatile. Hypnotic Stoner Rock with Pop elements? Psychedelic Post Rock? Alternative progressive vibe? They inweave new song structures with classics and create their own universe.
Night O’Mine is the second album of the quartet, signed by Elektrohasch Records since their debut The Magic Table Dance in 2010. It is more gloomy and mystical than their debut. More experienced, detached and filigree. Rocking parts with spacy breaks and mosh parts mixed up with easy sound walls. On top a brilliant voice, which always modulates perfectly to the different atmospheres of the songs.
Music-wise as well as lyric-wise Night O’Mine leads through the schizophrenia of the night with its combined abyss and climax of human beings. Driving riffs meet melancholic interludes, classic 4/4 beats complex rhythms and arrangements. A powerful, but sentimental up and down, that always finds its salvation in wonderful refrains.
Been Obscene already played with scene heroes like Motorpsycho, Fu Manchu, Brant Bjork, Colour Haze, White Hills, Los Natas, Rotor and My Sleeping Karma, among others at the Swamp Room Mania, DUNAjam Festival, On The Rocks Festival and various venues all around Europe like Festsaal Kreuzberg Berlin, Backstage Munich, Arena Vienna or Rockhouse Salzburg.
