Modern Time Machines

Artist bio

Modern Time Machines' blend of shoegaze space rock textures combined with noise pop sensibilities has drawn comparisons to Silversun Pickups and Sonic Youth, yet they craft their own unique, distinctive brand of music. They combine '60s psychedelia, boy/girl vocal harmonies, feedback-laced love songs and yes, time travel, into a riotous melange of beautiful noise.

The band made their national TV debut on Adult Swim in 2012 with a live performance on the cult hit The Eric Andre Show, and their music has received strong support from the major Los Angeles radio station KROQ 106.7FM. Modern Time Machines was recently featured in the Silver Lake music scene documentary Pass the Music alongside bands Happy Hollows, Airborne Toxic Event, and Henry Clay People. Their music has also regularly aired internationally in a major Japanese TV advertising campaign for the Meisui Tei hotel resort.

After recording their initial set of songs with producer Josiah Mazzaschi in 2010, the band's first single Dweeb began receiving regular airplay on Los Angeles radio station KROQ 106.7FM. Continually refining their sound, the band garnered noteworthy praise for its shows, playing LA venues such as Spaceland and The Echo alongside acts including Superhumanoids, Light FM, Nightmare Air, and Letting Up Despite Great Faults, as well as touring Austin, TX for the 2011 SXSW music fest.

Modern Time Machines' debut full-length album Continuity Girl was released in 2012. Co-produced by Josiah Mazzaschi (Jesus & Mary Chain, Deap Vally, Let's Go Sailing), and Steven Rhodes (Silversun Pickups, Darker My Love), Continuity Girl envelops the listener in frenzied, layered guitar/ string soundscapes, and catchy, bittersweet vocal textures. The albums contributors include Sundance Film Composers Lab vet Chanda Dancy, whose violin virtuosity weaves throughout; listeners may also recognize vocalist Breanne Martin from her work with HUMs Matt Talbot in Open Hand.
