Here, why don’t you listen to this nice mind-melting offering from Silver Lake band, Modern Time Machines, while I work on the third installment of my “Lost and Found”… This marvelous band blends driving melodies and screaming guitars with dreamy outer space strings and ethereal voice atmospherics. We move from gentle floating to beautifully layered cacophony. The vocal harmonies of Ben Golomb and Chelsea Jean Speer-Guzman drift around and through each other, and a particular favorite is “Lucky Lady” with a frantic and then soaring, screeching violin. Gorgeous. They’ve performed at SXSW, recently appeared at the 2013 Make Music Pasadena Festival and were featured in the Silver Lake music scene documentary “Pass the Music” along with The Happy Hollows, The Henry Clay People and The Airborne Toxic Event. Listen below to their debut full-length, Continuity Girl, which was released last year. They’re finishing work on a new single entitled “Loveletters,” which will be acommpanied by a music video and an EP in the coming months. Stay tuned. For now, if you’re in the Los Angeles area, they will be performing at The Viper Room on September 16th (tomorrow night) with Seasons and Tequila Slam. On the 22nd, they’ll be at the Satellite.
