Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. What started as a band focused on rock and reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to funk, livetronica, heavy rock and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.
They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Dopapod, Twiddle, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout, John Brown's Body, and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the east coast music scene and show no signs of slowing down.
Strange Machines released their latest studio album October 7, 2017. Founding member Mike MacDonald and long time keyboardist Christian Perron, with the additions of Craig Holland on bass and Isaac Civitello on drums, have honed in their sound and hit their stride as a four piece. "Voice of Color", the bands first full length release, is a representation of what the band has developed into, diving further into progressive experimental rock and funk more than ever before. Striving to consistently deliver a high energy and engaging live performance, the band has continued to gain momentum in the Northeast and beyond. This album aims to capture the diversity and big sound you will experience at a Strange show.
"Strange Machines is known for powerful, high-energy live performances that explore the depths of their music and cater to a breadth of listeners. None of the band’s beloved characteristics are lost on the album—rather, Voice of Color offers precisely executed arrangements of Strange Machines originals while still embodying the looseness and exploration you’d find at a live performance." - Live For Live Music
Of Clocks and Clouds
Of Clocks and Clouds is a psychedelic electronic rock group, born and raised in Brooklyn. Live For Live Music featured the band in their December 2017 playlist, and called them: " A Sonic Force Worth The Experience, And Has The Potential To Make A Serious Run At The Big Time. No Joke.”
Their most recent sets at the 2018 Disc Jam Music Festival, the 2018 Wavelength Music and Arts Festival, and on co-bills with Mungion, Lord Electro, Mister F, The Magic Beans, and others evidence the band's expansion beyond its rabid NYC fan base to cities throughout the Northeast.
Their first single, “What You Need,” was featured as the “Song of the Day” on the site A Music Blog, Yea? In 2015 they were ranked among the Top 25 Best New Music Critiques by Music Connection Magazine, and their first album, “YOU,” received critical acclaim and worldwide spins.
In 2016 the group – the duo of Joe Salgo and Ross Procaccio - released their second album, “Better Off,” showcasing eight tracks of “radio-ready alt-rock jams, spacey instrumentally focused tracks and even a futuristic ‘80s ballad,” according to Myspace.com. The Examiner called their single "She Had to Go" an "Epic Breakup Anthem," while The Au Review called the song “a slice of rock reminiscent of the Queens of Stone Age” that channels “hurt and emotional grief through some aggressive and intensifying music."
The band’s live shows are a hard-hitting psychedelic barrage that pushes the senses to their limits. With their improvised electronic jams, OCAC always draws a passionate crowd and enthusiasts of many different genres, allowing them to play with a variety of different bands. Of Clocks and Clouds forges their way into your heart, mind, and soul.
