Rachel by the Stream (AUS) have dropped their long awaited debut album through Bitnormal and Kinship. The eclectic 10 track album spans reggae, pop and dance, was written over a 3 year period and was produced by Matt Coldrick (Green Nuns of the Revolution, Pan Electric). The album showcases the bands signature multi-instrumentalism along with cameo appearances by Mal Webb, Reuben Stone, Cian Johnson (Vibraphonic Orkestra) and many others. This album sets a new standard for Bitnormal in song craft and production and is available on all major distributers including iTunes and Spotify.
Following their hypercolour ‘Crashland’ electro pop collaboration with Rachel by the Stream and a 16 date European tour, Men Imitating Machines present their latest EP ‘Easy Way Out’. Easy Way Out deviates from the polished studio production of their collaboration release with RBTS and returns to what the men do best: 100% live electronica. This EP features driving electro bass with vocoders, journeyman electronica, bass heavy hiphop collaborations (featuring Melbourne MC’s Mattriks, Lintwahn and vocalist Rachel Razelle) and a couple of banging remixes by Bitnormal Records artists SubTric and Kayboku.
