Freshly Played #23: Machineri

Another in the series of music from my collection is long overdue. This time I’ve chosen a local band who hail from Cape Town.

Personally I think South African music especially the rock and alternative kind, rates up there with the best in the world, if not better. We’ve produced some incredible artists who don’t always get the recognition they deserve.

Machineri was formed in 2008 by vocalist Sannie Fox who also writes and plays guitar. Andre Geldenhuys on guitars and Daniel Huxham on drums complete the trio. They play a bluesy kind of rock, with Sannie reminding me of Janis Joplin. Their influences range from John Lee Hooker, Led Zeppelin and The Black Keys to none other than Jimi Hendrix.
