about

Captain Fighting Machine spent several days recording in an isolated, makeshift studio in Tasmania. Donovan Miller (Brisbane, Forevr, No Anchor) engineered, Conor Macdonald, Adrian Stoyles (White Elephant, The Gin Club), Ben Salter (The Gin Club, Giants of Science), and Mike Noga (Legends of Motorsport, The Drones) tracked nearly everything live, before Bridget Lewis (The Gin Club) arrived and played cello and did some singing.

The collection of songs that comprise Captain Fighting Machine reflect an attempt to capture and conquer fear. Captain Fighting Machine confronts the enormity of nature, grief, loss and stress with a stoicism verging on the self-defeating. However, it is in the struggle that we find glimmers of hope, and we are all in the fight. These songs serve as a reminder both to oneself, and from a friend, that singing is also its own reward, and can and should be pursued wholeheartedly.

Recommended if you like:
Bill Callahan (Smog), Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co) or Sparklehorse.
