The Emperor Machine

Like A Machine

Record Store Day 2014 Release. Double LP and bonus CD of Dub and Instrumental versions. Following on from two hugely well received EPs on Southern Fried Records in 2013, the imprint is to release the highly anticipated, next full length offering from electronic explorer, Andy Meecham AKA The Emperor Machine.  The album, complete with stunning original art work, kicks off with the fizzing, dirty and indie leaning sonics of 'Theme From Magical Ring' which is captivating from the off. Dramatic and epic in equal measure, the album goes on to include a punky, tortured version of the previously released single / title track before sinking into a dubbed out, guitar licked disco groove awash with shimmering synths and Studio 54 dazzle.  Meecham proves his exceptional range throughout the album thanks to tracks like the kicking, vocal led punk-funk-disco jam that is 'Voices', the sexy, sultry groove of 'Pop The Lid' and insular, broken beat stumbles of the echo drenched 'Let The Bombs Fall' with its richly harmonic vocal refrains and acid twitches.
