SECRET MACHINES+TURING MACHINE
Luxx, at 6

Secret Machines are one of those bands that don't get nearly as much recognition as they deserve—but that's bound to change. Their songs are hypnotic, yet hyper-aware; desperate, yet ultimately triumphant. They sound a lot like Pink Floyd, and they've certainly spent their fair share of time spinning Spiritualized and Flaming Lips records, but they've also managed to find plenty of room for originality. Turing Machine, another trio, but of the all-instrumental nature, combine the earnestness of bands like Fugazi with an ability to build and release tension like the Melvins, and an appreciation for driving, post-punk melodies and rhythms not unlike Slint and Unwound. With A.R.E. Weapons, Natural History, and the Vexers. (Switzer)
