Borrowing some titular inspiration from William S. Burroughs, like Robert Wyatt before him, Australian DJ/Producer Tim Sullivan called his music project This Soft Machine.
Making it’s debut on Eskimo Recordings in April, This Soft Machine has less in common with the Canterbury sound and more to do with the LCD and !!!. Sullivan’s first single has a pair of cool cuts and features instrumentation from Dave Harrington of DARKSIDE and Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford, who helped record the synths.
It’s a sharp debut and a fun listen for anyone who ritually watches Shut Up and Play the Hits!
