Emperor Machine Vertical Tones and Horizontal Noise

Working solo as Emperor Machine, Andy Meecham's second LP is another departure from the acid revivalism that marks his work as Chicken Lips. Vertical Tones is a compendium of 12"s released over the past year, all produced with a loving nostalgia for vintage ‘70s analog production. Tracks like the epic "Roller Daddy" are enjoyable only on a kitschy level. But others are canny updates on the era, and solid floor bangers in their own right; "Lift Up Chong and See" plays like the future of electro-house with its the tightly zippered synths, cowbells, and robo-minx vocals.
