The Machine in the Garden - Shadow Puppets
The Machine in the Garden is the gothic/darkwave duo of Roger Fracé and Summer Bowman. Since their formation, Roger and Summer have developed and advanced their unique style through years of collaborating and intertwining their musical tastes.
Their brand new album, Shadow Puppets, is set for release just in time for the band's performance at Convergence 11 an annual net-goth celebration, taking place in San Diego this year.
While it's hard to pick favorites, Shadow Puppets could easily be the band's defining moment. An seamless amalgam of electronics, ethereal melodies and sensuous rhythms; the album is often very dynamic and anthemic, yet equally convincing when quiet and introspective. One of the returning signatures of the band has been singer Summer Bowman's startling beautiful vocal performances. Summer brings an enchanting quality to her often haunting melodies which perfectly balances the strength of the guitars, the serenity of the open beats or the drama of a lone piano.
the Machine in the Garden's Shadow Puppets is available now from Amazon.com.
