Sonic Boom

Of course you've heard about Sonic Youth. But have you actually heard them?

The Secret Machines
The Secret Machines open for Sonic Youth on
March 18 at the Gypsy Tea Room.

These local boys are poised for a breakthrough: After relocating from Dallas to New York in 2000—with a stop in Chicago to record the EP September OOO with the posse of players from that city’s Califone—the Secret Machines will release their major-label debut on May 18. Now Here Is Nowhere caters to fans of expansive, sharply grooving guitar-rock, as well as to those indiscriminate Best Buy shoppers perpetually on the prowl for young bands with major-label debuts. (Technically, May 18 could be today, since, in a rare and hopefully inspiring display of tech savvy, Reprise Records has made Nowhere available for download via thesecretmachines.com and the iTunes Music Store.) The record certainly sounds breakthrough-worthy: crash-and-burn guitar fuzz, widescreen production, a bass wallop perfect for blasting from your mom’s car after school. You know the drill: Catch ’em now before hipsters everywhere get the chance. Mikael Wood
