Description

Plastic on CD

Thebeachmachine is the brainchild of Danny Perez and Lazaro Lazo. Along with well-known Miami-based drummer Luis Illescas, these musicians are veterans of clubs across the country. Mixing hardcore/punk energy, ethereal distorted guitar soundscapes, and strong pop melodies, their sound is a product of years of songwriting, jamming, and a bit of experimentation. The current version of Thebeachmachine, while in a stripped-down trio format, is a clear extension of the act that released it's debut album Companion in 2000. That collection garnered rave reviews from all over the world. Comments from the media ranged from '...like a guitar being played in a dream world...' to '...heavily rock based, but with a weird aura that is simply undefinable...' to 'Well-crafted songs with listenability levels on high' to 'In a world where everything's already been done, these guys reinvent'. Though recently transplanted to their new hometown of Los Angeles, California, their consistent gigging has already garnered a modest but fanatical following hungry for killer songs, explosive performances, and a sound that has been referred to by some as the apex of modern-day escapist entertainment, all from a set of drums, a bass guitar, and a Telecaster guitar running through a small army of effects pedals into stereo amplifiers. All the above pieces, recorded and produced by Thebeachmachine with Scott Walton, keyboardist for the supergroup Conspiracy (Chris Squire/Billy Sherwood of Yes), are from their follow-up to 2000's Companion.
