Ok now back to the stateside with today's post as I am sure I will continue with UK acts in the future. Up today for your listening pleasure is Secret Machines originally from Dallas, Texas but now find themselves situated in New York City. They have put out 3 albums proper to date Now Here Is Nowhere, Ten Silver Drops and Secret Machines. They also released a couple of EP's September 000 and The Road Leads Where It's Lead which contained covers of Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" and Bob Dylan's "Girl From The North Country". The band was made up of two brothers Benjamin & Brandon Curtis plus Josh Garza on drums before Benjamin left to pursue his other project School Of Seven Bells. They will hopefully continue to put out solid albums with new guitarist Phil Karnett who featured on the last album. Check out what's been in store for some time below:
"Sad and Lonely" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c
"Lightning Blue Eyes" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c
"Atomic Heels" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a1nC-uyhg1c
They released a one off single "Like I Can" earlier this year, which was more orchestral but great nonetheless. I will continue to keep an eye out for anything this band releases.
