About Slot Machine
It’s not easy for a Thai rock band to stay at the top of their game and maintain their popularity for 10 years, but Slot Machine is that band. Since their teenage days, they have gone through stylistic changes, but the one thing that has remained constant is their devotion to music. Spin The World, Slot Machine’s first all-English album was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Steve Lillywhite and was released in 2016 to critical acclaim.
About Kiha & The Faces
Known for their artful wordplay, talk-like singing, and sympathizing lyrics, Kiha & The Faces holds a firm place at the top of the Korean indie scene. Their debut single “Cheap Coffee” became a massive hit in 2008 with their experimental yet familiar sounds captivating the masses. The band harmonizes the rhythms of the Korean language as well as combining the different genres of psychedelic, folk, funk, electronic, rock, and blues.
