The Free Music Archive is a long-standing initiative, directed by WFMU, the most renowned freeform radio station in America. The archive is an interactive library of high-quality, legal audio downloads, and features some of the most interesting and innovative music from around the world.
Every year, Free Music Archive curators pick their favourites from the library, and our Machine Death self-titled release landed a placing in their ‘Best of 2012’ list.
We’re quite humbled by the commitment of Sonic Masala who’ve taken it upon themselves to review the first TEN releases on Wood & Wire – from Emily Grantham, Machine Death, BOK Darklord, Shisd, Regional Curse (Stacey Wilson / Rites Wild), Setec, Kučka, automating and Fm. An amazing effort, and a great way to catch up on what you might have missed.
“This isn’t your Slayer or Metallica or Pantera, to be certain. It’s heavy sonic seance shit. Big walls of fuzzed out guitars or sludgy numbers swimming in the murky murk or knob twiddling feedback frenzies or straight up droooooooone or sort of industrialized punk frock and ghoul. It’s all here, it’s all hear.” Grindtheives
