Kinky Machine: “Last Look”

Posted by on Sep 12, 2014

Kinky Machine describes its music as “postmodern garage juju.” That’s just another way of saying that it’s pretty hard to classify them, and in the digital age, perhaps classification is less relevant than ever. The Austin band takes bits and pieces from all over the musical map: a bit of soul/R&B, a little arena rock, some Radiohead-like atmosphere. They’ve been quietly bubbling under for a few years with a couple of EPs and singles under their collective belts. This week sees the release of Kinky Machine’s debut album, the self-produced Grok. It’s another unclassifiable beast that’s capable of both quiet beauty and guitar-hero theatrics. “Last Look” kicks the record off with a danceable beat and synths, but the constant change of tone will keep you on your toes.

Catch Kinky Machine tonight at the Mohawk, starting at 9pm.
