Best described as progressive rock with some Krautrock mixed in, Secret Machines’ first full length release, Now Here is Nowhere, was recorded at Stratosphere Sound in NY and released May 18, 2004 on Reprise Records. All Music Guide gave the album 4 out of 5 stars. Their second album, Ten Silver Drops, like their first, did not make an impact commercially but garnered many favorable reviews. Following the release, the band was interviewed by David Bowie on radio; purported to be a big fan. Benjamin left the band in March of 2007, and was replaced by Phil Karnats. They have toured with the Foo Fighters, Spiritualized, Oasis, Kings of Leon, Interpol and many others. The band has been inactive since 2010 but Brandon and Josh have reformed and are working on a new album. Anyone interested in Pink Floyd, NEU, Ride, Spacemen 3, Mercury Rev, the Flaming Lips, U2, Super Furry Animals, Sparklehorse & Broken Social Scene should appreciate Secret Machine’s modern day Space Rock.
