Without a doubt one of the strongest EBM/Electro/Synthpop releases of 2015! Every song a brilliant shimmering gem and qualified as a "favorite track". A refreshing range of styles, emotions, and songwriting genius. This is not ordinary by any means but rather extraordinary and shows exceptional promise from the Swedish masterminds on their sophomore release (as did their debut). Highly Recommended. This has quickly become a release I could not live without. 10/10!
Favorite track: The Bombs.

AnalogueTrash are proud to announce that Swedish electropop sensations Machinista are back with their second album, Garmonbozia, the follow-up to 2014’s critically-acclaimed Xenoglossy. Featuring the sublime vocals and brilliant, soul-searching lyrics of John Lindqwister (Cat Rapes Dog, Basswood Dollies) and the sweeping, driving beats and synths of Richard Flow (Vision Talk, Haze For Sale), Garmonbozia is a collection of 10 tracks of unique melancholic, dark synthpop/electronica with an almost effortless grace and beauty.
Mixed, produced and recorded by the band themselves, Garmonbozia is an instant classic, hooking the listener from the first few seconds of “Picture Frame Eternity”, into "The Bombs" (featuring guest vocals from Mårten Kellerman of Statemachine) then right until the final refrain of “Train” and is sure to win the band many new fans, as well as pleasing those that have already discovered this up-and-coming Swedish act, who are going from strength to strength. See what the hype is about for yourself on June 15th when the album will be released worldwide. For fans of Code 64, Alphaville, Seabound, Rotersand, Advance, In Strict Confidence, Hurts and Duran Duran.
