The Secret Machines

I missed them - shucks

The New York-based trio are something like a collision between Krautrock, David Bowie and Pink Floyd - the latter especially, since both bands have lost a key member. Where Floyd substituted David Gilmour for Syd Barrett, the Machines have replaced Benjamin Curtis, their departed guitarist, with Phil Karnats, who has brought a muscular, avant-garde sound reminiscent of Robert Fripp's "Frippertronics", and even more effects pedals.
