Secret Machines - Ten Silver Drops (2006) Retail CD
Alternative Pop/ Rock
The rise of Texan troubadours Secret Machines has been impressive. They initially appeared with the fantastic debut album September 000; bettered it with Now Here Is Nowhere; and now they've gone one better with Ten Silver Drops--not only a more personal record, but also more musically ambitious and more conceptually sustained. Recorded in the Catskills mountains in New York state, the band's third project leads with the whirling, yearning, mildly epic single "Alone, Jealous and Stoned" before unfurling in typically "space-rock" (their description) fashion, all prog-rock psychedelia, hypnoticmore… krautrock grooves and a decent split of cosmic instrumentals and catchy Flaming Lips-style choruses. The loping, slow-burning strangeness of "Daddy's In The Doldrums" and the easy-going "I Want To Know (if it's still possible" (featuring Garth Hudson from The Band on accordion) all bring forth the band's penetrative grooves and psych-rock keyboard scribbles, offering a sound that's impressively muscular and surprisingly melodic. It's very rare that a band these days gets better and better with each successive album, but Secret Machines are fast becoming old masters at upsetting such conventions.--Paul Sullivan
