The Secret Machines have released a new non-album track to give the fans a sampling of what is to be expected from their newest album "Secret Machines". This track is sick, and if the new album is anything like it and the new songs that I have heard live, then we have a real treat coming! It may seem hasty but I'm going to predict that "Secret Machines" will be my favorite album of the year.
Okay, I want to know if there are any Secret Machines fans here. I have been listening to them for a while now and I'm just continually amazed by them. I saw them in NY at the Hiro Ballroom in April. They were on a circular stage (or what they call "in the round") surrounded by the audience. It was unique- it felt like I was watching some of my friends play music (except awesome). And the crowd seemed friendlier than usual too. If I had to list the best modern bands these guys would have to be in the top ten.
If there are any fans out there, then you've got to see them this fall, they are playing nothing but 'in the round' shows. I'm seeing them when they come to New York.
If you don't know their music then you should definitely check them out. They have some songs up on Myspace.
I'm going to be spinning at a movie premiere party, however I'm not really a DJ. I'm not even an actor, I'm just a wonderful person the director used for his movie.
I know nothing about DJing or what have ... I sort of gave up on modern music because every band and artist sounds exactly the same today, Good - but the same, like a million awesome bands are actually one.
Can you give me advice for spinning at this important party?

The Earlies @ The Echo (1822 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90026)
Residing in Northern England and Western Texas the four Earlies geographical differences and individual styles were brought together by a love of the three B’s, The Beach Boys, The Byrds, and The Beatles. All get a gracious nod on The Earlies debut album “These Were The Earlies” alongside more obscure Psychedelic, Progressive, Leftfield Pop and Country influences. With their current single “The Devil’s Country” they’re more genre defying than ever before.
Of Montreal's members are interested in finding a different way to look at a pop song. In this case, the group takes a meek approach, sneaking up on the melody surreptitiously and capturing it unawares. The instrumentation is equally low-key, using just guitar/bass/drums and mild, double-tracked vocals. Of Montreal is clearly influenced by `60s songsmiths such as the Byrds or even the Mamas And The Papas; the group's songs are all sweet pop ditties, as suitable for campfire-singing as stage performance. The songs also conjure up an innocence lacking in a lot of current music. Of Montreal || Listen
I created it for the attention of Gorky's Zygotic Mynci's label, Sanctuary, requesting that they resurrect a project they ditched last year to reissue the long out-of-print albums 'Patio' (1993), 'Tatay' (1994) and 'Bwyd Time' (1995), in a remastered format. Since it is my belief that these albums represent the pinnacle of the musical art form, pretty much (especially the latter two), I felt it was only proper to show that some people aren't too amused at this turn of events. If you wish to sign it, I would be eternally grateful!
Hello, tis me. Just joined this community due to my love(and sometimes obsession) with psych music old and new. My current find is a collection released by Mojo titled 'Acid Drops,Spacedust & Flying Saucers:psychedelic confectionery from the uk underground 1965-1969' whew. Great stuff. I also enjoy illustrating and painting artwork with psychedelic undertones. Enjoy!
Saw Of Montreal in Chattanooga last night; twas awesome, was anyone else there? Grand gaiety was enjoyed much on my part, twas an affirming sensation as yet I have not felt, to be part of something, yes?
I must admit I was a bit saddened at the lack of Lysergic Bliss being played, as I had an intricate dance for it mapped out in my head/heart. No matter; it was still enjoyable. I had a grand time, and I would recommend everyone see them live.
Don't hesitat to add me or start randomly talking to me out of the blue/obsessing with me.
