Guitarist/Vocalist from the well-known band, TV on the Radio, is currently on tour with his solo project, Rain Machine, and getting rave reviews. His new project encompasses a range of musical styles and people are loving it.
British Publication NME said of recent Rain Machine performance, “Kyp Malone’s new project surpasses even his day job band for sheer inventiveness…” said British publication NME of a recent show.
The Wall Street Journal writers witnessed the same performance, saying “…despite the smaller band, the music musters the same swells and rising action that characterizes his better-known band. When they played a complicated song called “Give Blood,” the crowd responded with noise and dance, expecting a subdued solo performance. Instead, the audience found itself a few feet away from a sound that would otherwise belong on a stage set for thousands.”
Here’s a download of Rain Machine – Give Blood (mp3).
Rain Machine Will Open for The Pixies beginning this November!
