Secret Machines: Now Here Is Nowhere
Artist Secret Machines
Album Now Here Is Nowhere
Label Reprise Records
Released 5/18/2004
Rather than simply reproduce the band's live sound, tracks like "First Wave Intact," "Nowhere Again" and "Lights ON!" mix live drums with multi-hued layers of treated guitars and keyboards, while still retaining the elastic, adventurous spirit of a Secret Machines performance, Now Here Is Nowhere glows with the organic warmth of The Band's Music From Big Pink, while also possessing the mechanical propulsion of classic Krautrock bands like Neu and La Dusseldorf, a combination of seemingly contradictory musical strains that sounds completely natural the way these gentleman work it.
