Mystery Machine are back with a new album! It's been a LONG time since we've heard new music from this fantastic Vancouver band - their last album, Headfirst Into Everything, was released back in 1998. The new album, Western Magnetics, is a collection of material recorded over a span of about 10 years, and it's a swoon-worthy mix of shoegaze and guitar rock. But don't take my word for it - take a listen right now for yourself. Western Magnetics is streaming in its entirety over at Exclaim!
Western Magnetics will be released digitally and as a physical cd through Sonic Unyon on September 11th. Pre-order directly from Sonic Unyon here.
