A nice article about the new album from the fine folks at Beatroute!

The New Weather Machine: Flowing with the Changes

"The overarching theme of moving through irreversible change is what connects this collections of songs together, and anything outside of that Martin recognized as being another body of work.

“Moving through perpetual change; that would be the single concept of the album. So sometimes change is good, and sometimes change is scary, and sometimes change just happens, and it is exactly what it is.”  

Fittingly, the album will evoke different emotional responses in the listener with its seemingly odd genre shifts. Effortlessly shifting from a subdued form of indie folk to jazzy soundscapes reminiscent of Genesis style prog in a single song, it was recorded, mixed and produced by Martin in Lethbridge and takes the listener on a varied nine-track journey. "

Album release show

Excited to announce the album release show. We'll be having it on November 11th at The Owl in Lethbridge, and are lucky enough to be joined by the wonderful Shaela Miller!

We'll be doing the new album in its entirety, as well as a few songs that are even newer and a couple old favourites. You can check out the Facebook event
here.

Sand Vultures review

Nice little Spanish review of Sand Vultures via MTV's Rocktails:

"
Distorsión, noventerías y buen rock. Eso es lo que nos ofrecen los The New Weather Machine en Sand Vultures, su más reciente sencillo e intro de su primer larga duración Seas of Dawn.
Aprovechando que en estos días es mucho lo que se habla de los
Foo Fighters y su nuevo disco Concrete and Gold, te invito a que te des una vuelta por Sand Vultures. Si eres fan de la banda que lidera Dave Grohl; The New Weather Machine no tiene nada que envidiarle al sonido de los Foo en esta nueva entrega.
Distorsiones, pegajosos riff de guitarra y rock para “batir la greña” como Dios manda. ¡Eso! ¡Eso es lo que nos traen los
The New Weather Machine en éste, su nuevo sencillo!."

Pictures and mini update

It's been a while! I've been quite busy with all sorts of things, including beginning the pursuit of an MMus, some electroacoustic music, and working on a bunch of new, New Weather Machine songs. I will have a some news regarding the new album in the coming weeks (and ideally sooner rather than later!).

Thanks to everyone who made it down to the Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp fundraiser show. We had a great time, we hope you did as well! Some pictures from the night are below from my brother Andrew, who also played sax on a number of songs.
