Though they may not quite agree, the Triangle quartet of Go Machine sounds as much like legendary Vermont act Phish as any band trying to make it at the moment. Make no mistake though, the Go Machine--which includes Daniel Hart (of Polyphonic Spree notoriety)--is no jam band. But the debut EP from these ex-Austin boys moves with the same Talking Heads-meets-White Album bounce and mystery as "Billy Breathes." Like Anastasio and Co., Go Machine is epically unafraid of sonic risk, implanting turntable, Theremin, and violin escapades among breaks running amuck within scattered, scat-riffed jive in two languages that break loose amidst refrains that are almost too memorable, leaving one ... absolutely breathless! Abe Reid, Self Portrait and Sedona are also on the bill. --Grayson Currin
