EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: The Secret Machines - Dreaming Of Dreaming
Patience usually warrants some great things, and one of those things happens to be new songs from dormant New York band The Secret Machines. Until this non-album b-side, culled from the sessions for the band’s eponymous new album (which will be self-released this fall with the help of World’s Fair), the last music that the band released to the public was 2006’s alchemic and juicy Ten Silver Drops. “Dreaming Of Dreaming” is one hell of a return to form, alleviating any worry that fans wouldn’t be hearing songs that sound like rocket journeys from the deserts of Texas to the (newly found!) waters of Mars. With an octave-jumping Rhodes riff at its core and the steady trap-slaying of drummer Josh Garza, this song sounds like everything we ever loved about the Secret Machines (read: losing braincells sonically), building and building over eight minutes until even the drums have slap-back delay on them and the whole thing sounds like the Hale-Bop comet crashing into the Garden of Eden. The track will be available on limited edition vinyl later this year, but download it now as a taste of what’s to come. Put on some sunglasses for this one, then sit back and bliss out.
Sounds like: Autolux, Boris, Led Zeppelin
