StereoRiots “Ghost Machines” is a perfectly-posed piece of thoughtful indie rock that draws upon Disintegration-era The Cure, The Appleseed Cast, and Brand New. Assertive guitar lines and splashy drums run parallel to the supersonic vocals. The StereoRiots are able to shift and modify this composition throughout its extended run time, keeping listeners firmly planted on the edges of their seats. We’re in love with the mid-point of Ghost Machines, as the momentum initially experienced continues to builds. Listeners will be spun off in a more contemplative way by the four-minute mark as the vocals retreat. This in an epic experience from the StereoRiots.
