Nine MIllion Rainy Days with Daydream Machine - An Interview

Imagine numa banda com membros do The Upside Down, Warlocks, Music for Headphones e Hawkeye, pois então esta super banda do submundo dos bons sons existe e atende pela alcunha de Daydream Machine.

Desnecessário dizer que a viagem aqui é ácida, por vezes caindo para um lado mais pós punk, em outras o shoegazer sobe um patamar em outras o folk apocalíptico entra em primeiro plano mas sempre com a tendência psych permeando todo o clima criado no debute Twin Idols lançado no ano passado.

Twin Idols é uma odisseia permanente de delírios e alucinações criada por mestres em um momento único.

A estreia do Daydream Machine não é um disco é uma obra prima.

***** Interview with Daydream Machine *****

Q. When did Daydream Machine started, tell us about the history...
As this name, Jsun, Matthew, Josh and I got to together days after I moved back to Portland from my exile in Philadelphia, October of 2012. In thee last few months, Cat and Bob have joined Daydream create a new origin and simultaneously cementing a very old one; Jsun, Bob, and I were all founding members of the Upsidedown.

Q: Who are your influences?
I can only speak for myself, but what I hear in Daydream Machine is Galaxie 500, Spiritualized, New Order, Love and Rockets, The Stone Roses...as well as some darker things like Swans, and Sisters of Mercy.

Q. Made a list of 5 albums of all time…
Clearly, this one is all mine, tonight anyway:

Jesus and Marychain- Darklands
Spirtualized- Pure Phase
Sisters of Mercy- Floodland
The Cure- Bloodflowers
Mazzy Star- She Hangs Brightly

Q. How do you feel playing alive?
When its all going right, there's hardly anything as special.

Q. How do you describe Daydream Machine´s sounds?
Swirly, pulsating, dark, psychedelic, gazey, hazey, true.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Our debut album, Twin Idols (2014, Picture in My Ear), was recorded over the course of a year in nine total spaces, from our rehearsal basement to various kitchens, living rooms and ultimately Collin Hegna's (Brian Jonestown Massacre, Federale) Revolver Studios.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
I'm digging Hookworms, Bonfire Beach, Burning Palms, Magic Castles, Elephant Stone, LA Witch... Jsun, Cat and Matthew are all way more caught up on new music than I. Honestly, I spent most of 2014 listening to the Pet Shop Boys first two albums and more recently I've had Fleetwood Mac's Rumors on repeat.

Q: Which bands you love to made a cover version?
Well, we still love doing our version of Frankie Vallie's "Dawn." I'd love to do something like the We Five's "You Were on My Mind".

Q: What´s the plans for future....
2015 is starting to shape up pretty quickly with some amazing shows locally, planning a west coast tour, constantly demoing and getting ready to record our follow up.

Q: Any parting words?
Rulers make bad lovers, you better put your kingdom up for sale...
