Hot buttered diggity! The Monday Machines CD ships Saturday, pre-orders and downloadable versions are available here: Monday Machines Album. The CD is available in a hand-printed special edition (see link for details) , limited to the first 50 copies, so pre-order and reserve one today!
There's also a full line of Monday Machines merchandise and memorabilia magnificently marketed mmmhere.
Most of the music on the CD was recorded in England by Cary Grace (vocals, keyboards, guitars, more) with the help of the rhythm section (Andy Budge:bass, David Payne: drums) from her 2009 double-CD release Perpetual Motion, one of my favorite records of last year.
My guitars, my vocals and the bulldozer parts were recorded here in America by me. The entire project was mixed and produced by Cary. She also did the artwork and design for the CD cover and lyric booklet.
How to describe the music? It doesn't really sound like Jefferson Airplane jamming with NEU! with equipment on loan from Pink Floyd and drugs supplied by Sonic Youth- but if you like those bands, you'll almost certainly like the Monday Machines.
