About Beautiful Small Machines
Early Releases | Each song on the “Robot in Love” EP seem to twist and turn at every angle, like the title track itself, which starts out like a 70’s disco song filtered though AM radio only to erupt in twangy divergent guitars and live drums. On their second EP release, “Simple Joys (4 Roy & Pris)”, Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, a fan of the band, lent his haunting vocals on the titular, dark, love song written for the ill-fated androids in Bladerunner. The song musically and lyrically tells the story of the two genetically engineered slaves, star-crossed and desperate for more time.
And Then There Was Banjo | Prior to completing their long-overdue follow-up EP (which as of this writing is actually complete), BSM released a heavily lauded and critically praised, banjo-laden cover of MIA’s “Paper Planes”, which has garnered it’s own organic ground-swell and viral reach, gracing the cover of dozens of music blogs for it’s own distinct take on the original. It has also significantly helped many new fans to discover the New York City based twang-folk duo.
Hello World | Despite having yet to release a full-length album, BSM has scored several big licenses on ABC's Castle, 90210 and The Hills, as well as promo campaigns for Victoria’s Secret, MasterCard, and Starz. They look to return to the road soon with their new release. Don has also recently scored the feature film “Ranchero,” whose soundtrack has been officially released. He also has a new full-length album due called “Magnificent Ram A.” Bree has begun some early writing for a new upcoming and highly-anticipated solo release.
