Biography

Modern Time Machines’ blend of gauzy space rock atmospherics + pop songwriting sensibility has drawn comparisons to Sonic Youth, Medicine, and Silversun Pickups, yet they craft their own unique, distinctive brand of music. They combine ’60s psychedelia, boy/girl vocal harmonies, feedback-laced love songs and yes, time travel, into a riotous melange of beautiful noise.

After playing their first s…how in December 2007, the band’s first single “Dweeb” began receiving strong support from the major Los Angeles radio station KROQ 106.7FM. Continually refining their sound, the band garnered noteworthy praise for its shows, playing LA venues such as Spaceland and The Echo alongside acts including Light FM, Nightmare Air, Useless Keys, and Letting Up Despite Great Faults, as well as touring Austin, TX for the 2011 SXSW music fest.

Kevin Bronson of the LA Buzzbands music blog has stated Modern Time Machines’ “cocktail of fuzzed-out dissonance and cirrus melody gets sweeter with each outing…fans of Swervedriver, Medicine and should take note.”

The band has filmed an upcoming live performance airing on the Adult Swim Cartoon Network, and was recently featured in the Silver Lake music scene documentary “Pass the Music” alongside bands The Happy Hollows, The Movies, and The Henry Clay People.
