Biography

As fans of melodic pop as well as ambient and experimental music, Impossible Recording Machine’s Matt Walker and Jim Dinou set out to create an album that captured the depth and mood they had envisioned for their second release. If Axioms, their debut album, was a sampling of disparate moods and textures, they intended Echo The Moon to be a more singular vision, following the course of an emotive theme from beginning to end. The result is an album that is alternately beautiful and eerie, gentle and razor sharp. Echo The Moon is an explorative soundscape encompassing electric, acoustic, melodic, dissonant, disciplined and spontaneous musical worlds.

Impossible Recording Machine recorded Echo the Moon at Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin. There they embraced the world of analog, exploring Space Echoes, vintage reverbs and compressors, and a 2-inch tape machine with the creative influence of Smart’s Sean O’Keefe. Joining them in the studio were Walker’s brother Solomon Snyder (Year of the Rabbit, Joy Circuit), bass; Scott Bennett (Brian Wilson, Flaming Lips), guitar; Jonny Polonsky, guitar; Arch Alcantara, guitar; and Alan Berliant, bass.
