Giant Dwarf Western Australia

Giant Dwarf is a riff-laden five-piece band with primarily heavy, psychedelic, stoner rock leanings, hailing from the Wild West of Oz.

Kitchen Witch South Australia

Australian red-dust desert rock outfit “Kitchen Witch” is Australia’s answer to both the California desert/stoner rock scene and Europe’s stoner/prog/psych circuit. With half the founding members hailing from the red centre of Alice Springs and the other half just a stone’s throw from the Flinders Ranges, this band is not just desert rock by name.

Planet of The 8s Victoria

Desert Stoner Rock based in Melbourne, Australia. Notorious for their prodigious sense of groove and songcraft, the music is laced with rich harmonies, melodic hooks and enigmatic tales. Layered over a blisteringly heavy, dynamically intricate foundation of riff-driven journey arrangements, they’ve conjured a formula that has made a significant imprint on the stoner rock scene both locally and overseas since the band formed in 2015.

Joined by ultra dope local features from SEQ’s underground scene.

Riffmageddon is an annual event relating to the adventures of Death By Carrot; bringing home our national undergrounds greater celebration of Riffs among all things weird & wonderful. As Gina rolls around we enjoy collaborations with artists around Australia and present to you this showcase from our Infinity Loop.


Death By Carrot is a project with over 400 Australian performances celebrating alternative culture, encouraging a healthy space for human-to-human communication through community gatherings and artistic collaborations. . Our method is Riffs.


Our mechanism is The Infinity Loop, a national sequence of events... We are talking 60+ towns and cities in 14 weeks and 15,000+ km of road at a time; the Infinity Loop snake’s its way throughout Australia’s metropolitan and regional spaces. From the canopies of The Kimberley to the banks of the Murray River, vast plains of the Nullarbor to the ancient oceanic openness of Centralian Northern Territory; The Infinity Loop embodies the stories of the Australian land and the folks that dwell in them.


In 2020 we attempted our first ~complete~ Infinity Loop! Due to the Cvids situation we had to turn around and Hightail it Home upon reaching Margaret River https://bit.ly/HightailinItHome


After a brief grounding, Gina rolled out of Brisbane to attempt the complete Infinity Loop for the second time. We barely made it into WA before the borders closed. Zig zagging around as far north as Broome and as far around the boot as Kalgoorlie/ Esperance, we continued to raise the Riffs!


Now returning East after 13 months away from home to gather in the name of slow, low and heavy for our yearly Riff showcase RIFFMAGEDDON; an all inclusive gathering of Riff lovers, desert dreamers, groovers and movers.. remember that cave rave scene in Matrix? 4 dope gatherings of stoner grooves & desert rock with a colossal interstate lineup.

Rinser(SEQ)

On the outskirts of Gotham city (aka surfers paradise) a piss drinkin, bi-aged, quadruplet called Rinser are calling upon their ancestors to guide them on their quest to find the perfect, potent blend of classic rock, heavy blues and guitar driven groove in a deep space exploration of the subconscious.

https://rinserband.bandcamp.com/



Kobrakai(SEQ)

What started out as a recording project with the release of our debut album 'Snuffbox' in 2014 has led to gigs aplenty in our pursuit of all things of a grungy nature. With the release of 'Zodiac' we enter a new phase of the Kai......
