Machine, dear: ‘Best of 2012’

Posted on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 by Anders Søndergaard

Since the release of ‘Killing something that’s already dead’ January 13 2012 we have received quite a lot of attention. To be honest way more than we expected.
Our tracks have been listened to several thousand times on streaming services and most of our limited edition vinyl release have been sold.
And to top it all we actually made it into four very different ‘best of 2012’ lists from blogs in Denmark, UK and France. And seriously, that makes us so proud.
Go see for yourselves by following the links below. There are a lot of interesting stuff besides our humble contribution to the massive amount of music available.

Thanks a lot caring about our music :-).

Happy new year!

Interview with Machine, dear on

Posted on Thursday, January 19, 2012 by Anders Søndergaard

Hi all – the music site that recently gave our album 5/6 in their review – just published an interview with us on their site. It is called ‘Musikken er teknologi’ (‘The music is technology’) and is mainly about our ambition to design songs instead of just playing them.

You might think it is interesting. No matter what, we really appreciate the attention. Thanks, Lydtapet.

Read the full review here.

All the best.

First review: 5/6 from Lydtapet

Posted on Tuesday, January 10, 2012 by Anders Søndergaard

The guys at the music site are the first to review ‘Killing something that’s already dead’, and we are pleased to see that they like it. They give the album 5 out of 6. Nice. Thanks. Wow.

Here’s a few quotes (in Danish):

Med brug af skæve tilgange til opbygning og et ret sikkert øre for at skabe stemninger, leverer Machine, Dear gode, progressive popsange med elektroniske undertoner.

“Killing Something That’s Already Dead har forskellig påvirkning af lytteren alt efter hvilken steming og situation man er i. Men når man bare sidder og lytter, giver sig tid til det og ikke laver andet, folder der sig flot musik ud for ørerne af én, hvor der er tænkt på helheden og detaljen.

Thanks, Lydtapet

We hope that you – whoever reads this – will like it to.
