STATIC OF THE GODS: Knowledge Machine: CD

Mar 15, 2010

This Boston three-piece makes some great, fuzzy, ambient rock with female vocals reminding me somewhat of Stars or Gregor Samsa. While the layout of the album is a wintry feel with pictures of icebergs, the sound also seems fitting for a cold night tucked under the covers. There’s a warm vibe somehow making its way through in the midst of the cool, atmospheric quality of the music that bares a resemblance to many an instrumental act such as Explosions In The Sky or Joy Wants Eternity. Not a bad release, especially for fans of expansive instrumental bands with effective, smooth, female vocals overriding it all.
