Electric Tickle Machine Set Vinyl Release And Tour

(PR) Electric Tickle Machine's debut album, Blew It Again (out in October) relishes in the magic moments between cynicism and forgetfulness where surrender makes imperfection a blessing.

Recorded in 14 days in the winter of 2009 by Matt Boynton (Gang Gang Dance, Vietnam, Bat For Lashes), the record delivers hooky anthems bathed in organic layers of psychedelic fuzz. From the title track's conciliation of the confounding, to the spooky shuffle of "Bones," the sincere hand-clapper "Part Of Me" to the twangy, countrified "Fast Train," Blew It Again satisfies the most eclectic of musical cravings.

This new band's spacey brand of American garage-pop is as much an ode to curiosity and playfulness as it is a loving indictment of society caught in the throes of western medicine. This repeat listen will see a digital release in the fall with a limited edition vinyl format available on the band's upcoming US tour (which is one NOT to miss).

Over the course of the past year, Electric Tickle Machine has built a devout New York following on the merit of their explosive live shows -- prone to confetti, naked bodies and a sweaty mass of bouncing, singalong kids. With their first show filmed and championed by famed Warholian photog Nat Finklestein, a performance on BBC TV Wales and a KEXP in-studio performance garnering comparisons to The Velvet Underground and Brian Jonestown Massacre, the future looks bright for Electric Tickle Machine.
