In the haze of Krautrock’s capital Düsseldorf Marcel Rösche (Vocals, Percussion), Felix Wursthorn (Guitar, Synthesizer), Thibaut Sanli (Bass) and Noel Lardon (Drums, Percussion) got together as Love Machine in early 2013. Dedicated to psychedelic improvisation, krautish weirdness, minimalism and unpredictable performances they soon recorded their debut LP A Present to the Galaxy which was released on Tonzonen Records in 2014. Meanwhile they were joined by Hendrik Siems (guitar) and played more than 50 shows in clubs and at festivals in Germany and Switzerland following the release of A Present to the Galaxy.
Love Machine is living a spirit of free floating creativity in recombining influences of psychedelia, blues, jazz, african and latin american rhythms and analogue electronics. An attitude they share with bands from the San Francisco era and the hightimes of Krautrock. This bundle of american and german popcultural tradition paired with their high voltage live performances established Love Machine as part of the german underground music scene and made them a favourite both of crowds and critics in the last two years.
Love Machine: Sun Paradox
22th of April westcoast obsessed Krautrockers Love Machine will release their new album CIRCLES on Tonzonen Records. The album’s first track Sun Paradox is also the first single to come from their San Francisco Psychedelia and german Cosmic Music inspired record. Sun Paradox is a psychedelic Folk Rock trip beyond space and time recalling the spirit of artists like The Grateful Dead, The Band, The Byrds and Neil Young and dealing with issues probably only sensitive individuals of our species might recognize. The belonging video (directed by Jens Vetter) is a phantastic journey through nature and a document of the band’s weird adventures like working on a breakthrough in quantum physics, turning back time or teaching wild animals the benefits of a television receiver. Love Machine will celebrate the release of Sun Paradox with a concert and video preview at 8mm Bar, Berlin 7th of April.
