Released in 2006, Ten Silver Drops, the second album from Secret Machines was one of our favourites of that, and any subsequent year. A masterpiece of spacey widescreen guitars, prog and krautrock, it was an album that was constantly on repeat.

Although the record has been out of print for more than ten years, Ten Silver Drops will be reissued on 180g heavyweight vinyl in expanded format with extra tracks. The limited edition release includes a bonus LP of B-sides and rarities from the Allaire Sessions making their debut on vinyl.

Amongst the B-sides is their cover of Gillian Welch’s Everything Is Free, which originally appeared on the band’s UK only single of All At Once (It’s Not Important).

R.I.P. Benjamin Curtis

Very sad indeed to hear the news about Benjamin Curtis. We were big fans of Secret Machines and School of Seven Bells.

One Thousand Posts - A Celebratory Mix. We moved MM to WordPress in April 2010, after being one of the many blogs to get screwed by Google Blogspot. We noticed that this is our one thousandth post since that time and so we have marked the occasion (for such that it is for us) with an appropriately themed mix for your enjoyment.

So, from the classic sound of Tenpole Tudor’s new wave power-pop via The Men They Couldn’t Hang’s protest cow punk to the folk of Joe Pug and the Floydian prog-rock of The Silver Machines, there should be something for everyone to get their teeth, and ears, into.

Dig in! Here’s to the next thousand.
