Sewing Machines
"If Brian Eno produced a slightly more Americana version of TV on the Radio, you might get a band sounding something like Sewing Machines. The group has a penchant for sculpting beautiful and natural soundscapes out of the most synthetic of sources. Keyboards and drum machines overlay functionally tweaked vocal energy... and still, all of it is catchy as hell. But if there's one thing to separate the band from the legions of loop machine tinkerers surrounding Brooklyn, it's the unexpected humanity and simple fun the band always make sure to include in their experiments."
-The Deli NYC

"All the loitering, soaked-in-reverb instrumentals duck and interweave perfectly with Horwich's unique vocals creating something completely refreshing."
-Blalock's Indie Rock Playlist

"[T]he music is truly greater than the sum of its parts and creates a world that feels ancient and futuristic but, above all, deeply familiar."
-Cover Me

"Mixing violins and banjos with infecting drum beats, innovatory loops, and samples seems to be the mantra here but within each jam there is a new sound that I find to be just fan-fucking-tastic."
-Folk Hive

""Cosmic laptop country music from the mutli-instrumentalist Max Horwich as those born from her kitchen grinds down, the last journey of psychedelic loops. Eclectic and witty creation from Band Camp shelves."
