Dead Machines - Futures (2005)

Dead Machines have a very artsy feel to the harsh noise they are responsible for making. I suppose this is to be expected when the membership is examined. Funny the things you'll learn when you do this; in particular that Dead Machines is based out of Ypsilanti, MI. The two halves of pair are both notable for the endeavors into independent music in the past John Olson with the harsh noise giants Wolf Eyes and Tovah O'Rourke worked with eccentric group Wooden Wand & the Vanishing Voice. In addition, they're married to one another, which is just cute. The album has the trappings of a Wolf Eyes style art-noise release; including the lack of titles for any of the tracks. The five tracks explore some highly mechanical and ghastly sounds and weave them together to make what feels to me like a howling mechanized ghost. Thus living up to there name adequately. In summation, this a a very interesting and provoking collection of avant-garde noise that I highly suggest to anyone inclined to such a fancy.
