The haunting, bittersweet melodies of LA-based shoegaze veterans Modern Time Machines have been described as a “noisy, romantic hurricane for those who like their rock with intricate layers” (Buzzbands LA). Boy/girl vocal harmonies feature heavily in the band’s feedback-laced love songs, which have drawn comparisons to acts like M83, Medicine and Sonic Youth.
Following the local momentum of their earliest shows, the band’s first single “Dweeb” began receiving strong radio support from LA’s KROQ 106.7FM. Continually refining their sound with “nuanced playing and killer hooks” (Los Angeles Times), the band was invited to perform live nationally on the premiere episode of Adult Swim’s cult TV hit The Eric Andre Show, and their tunes can be heard on the soundtracks of films such as “My Teacher, My Obsession” and “Killer Cove” on Netflix.
Modern Time Machines’ 3rd LP, “Practical FX + Physical Media” is dropping July 29, 2022. Produced by Josiah Mazzaschi (Jesus & Mary Chain, Smashing Pumpkins, Deap Vally), the album features contributions from Kaitlin Wolfberg (that dog., Wild Honey Orchestra), and Ryan Connor (Sublamp), and material from the album can be heard alongside They Might Be Giants in the award-winning indie feature film, “Dramarama”, featured in Variety & HuffPost.
An upcoming Modern Time Machines songwriting collaboration with the late Grammy-winning songwriting legend Allee Willis is on the horizon – stay tuned.
