To end the day, how about a couple of treats from Brandon Curtis, Josh Garza and Phil Karnats, the three Dallas ex-pats living in New York who, together, make up The Secret Machines?

Turns out, in late January, in lieu of any planes to release an album anytime soon, the trio released a couple singles. Y'know, just for kicks?

Curtis talked to Spinner.com about the singles back in January, but, beyond that, we never really heard much about the releases. Not sure why, since they're kind of badass and all. Right up there with most of the cuts off 2008's self-titled release, actually. Check out streams of both the songs the band quietly released ("Like I Can" and "Terrible Light") after the jump. Well worth the listens, for sure.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
