San Diego’s MACHINES LEARNING are a band that show the listener that there is more than one way to be dark and dramatic. Incorporating elements of post-rock, shoegaze and several other creative styles, MACHINES LEARNING carve a faded and rustic canyon through your ears.
Equal parts abrasive and accessible, MACHINES LEARNING recently released their self titled full length in June and have now joined with Bleeding Light Records for a digital and limited vinyl release of the album. Limited and signed versions of the vinyl, as well as digital versions are available now at Bleeding Light Records.

“The ‘atmospheric’ will definitely come in on tracks such as “this destroyed me”, an instrumental treat which uses just the right amount of effects before leading into the chord-heavy, structured guitar and slightly syncopated, heartbeat-driven drum patterns that are very customary to the group, and heard throughout the album.” –The IndieSD
“With crunchy chords that induce a dreamy gaze and generate heavy fields of sonic thrust, Machines Learning has taken cues from Billy Corgan and Kevin Shields and interprets these influences well. ” -Letters From A Tapehead
I catch myself starting to hum along to them. I can’t however stop drawing musical comparisons to some great guitar bands from said 90s, and especially the early Smashing Pumpkins come to mind. -Echoes & Dust
