Secret Machines: February 19, 2010 Glasslands – Flac and MP3 Downloads

February 22, 2010

Acidjack reports:
“The last time we saw Secret Machines back in December was a strange night, with guitarist Phil Karnats stranded in Chicago, leaving drummer Josh Garza and vocalist/bassist Brandon Curtis a two-man act.  There were no such difficulties during TSM’s set at Glasslands on Friday, where they closed out a five-band night with their monster sound. The setlist focused heavily on their latest self-released record, and veered from their heavy-hitting rockers to bluesier numbers like “The Walls Are Starting to Crack” and their slower numbers “I Never Thought to Ask” and “The Leaves are Gone” (both of which, unfortunately, proved a bit of a tough sell to a weary crowd at 1:30 a.m.).

I recorded this set with the DPA microphones clamped to the floor of the balcony, directly between the PA stacks.  The sound is excellent.  Enjoy!”
