NEW RELEASE: Metropolis Pt. II' from The M Machine

The M Machine released a follow-up to last year's 'Metropolis Pt. I' suitably titled 'Metropolis Pt. II'.  

The release details:

Duration: 35m39s
Label: OWSLA
Track Count: 6

Band Bio (thx wikipedia): 
The M Machine is an electronic music group from San Francisco, formed in 2011 by Ben Swardlick, Eric Luttrell and Andy Coenen. They released their first EP Metropolis Pt. I on Skrillex's label OWSLA.[1] The group primarily produces with Logic Pro.[2] One of the distinctive features of their live show is a giant letter "M" formed out of LED panels which are synced to the music

Review: The release relies heavily on synth and long-lasting rhythmic beats and has a light feel to it and wobbles are pretty much absent, but what I like best about it is the female vocal sounds which range from old-time Zooey Deschanel-esque sound on 'Moon Song' to a bit modern rock-ish as is displayed in 'Tiny Anthem'.  It's vague but it's there.  I loaded up this album as I was checking this week's new releases and at first I was thinking I wasn't going to like it, but the first track "The Palace" (play below) quickly turned into something I truly enjoyed.  

Boil It Down Sarge.: The release is short and sweet.  It's light, and has a consistent theme throughout.  I listened to it once, and will load it up again for sure.  Could be good background for a home date, or small party.
