In spring 2016 THE GHOST AND THE MACHINE presented themselves impressively with their self titled debut, with the new album Red Rain Tires they reach for the stars.
The metallic overtones of the resonator guitar meet hypnotic bass, as well as an overflowing drum set played in all directions.
Andi Lechner, Valentin and Matthias Macht have found and raised their Wall of Sound. The spirit and the machine have emerged from the blues-and-environment and now defy all pigeonholing. Raubeinig, from intimate to unleashed and honest in every sequence, “a sound that breathes”.
A road movie through shady dream landscapes and dives with naturally yellowed patina. When the abstract becomes tangible, mind and machine run smoothly, on sound carriers anyway, the heightening that takes your breath away happens in direct contact live on stage. (Mario Lang)
