String Machine - Death of the Neon
Earlier this month, String Machine, a local experimental indie-folk band released a music video for "Eight Legged Dog," the second song on its forthcoming new album, Death of the Neon. The music video was meant to tease the LP, and if it truly foreshadows the nine-track album, expect to listen and feel a weirdly uplifting sense of doom, sprinkled over heartfelt melodies and soothing rhythms.
Death of Neon drops Fri., Aug. 2, with an album release party the following day at The Mr. Roboto Project. 7-11 p.m. Sat., Aug. 3. 5106 Penn Ave., Bloomfield. $10. facebook.com/stringmachinemusic
