The Gift Machine
The Gift Machine
The Gift Machine is 5 piece indie rock band from North County San Diego based around the harmony vocals of husband/wife team Dave and Andrea Matthies.

Initially founded in the Pacific Northwest as an outlet for the solo work of songwriter Dave Matthies, The Gift Machine soon mutated organically into a near-collective of Washington State luminaries. Matthies ran KNW-YR-OWN Records with Bret Lunsford (Beat Happening, D+) in Anacortes, WA from 1998-2006, and collaborated with a long list of NW notables including Karl Blau, Phil Elverum (Microphones/Mount Eerie), Little Wings, Laura Veirs, the Graves, Thanksgiving, Your Heart Breaks, the Murder City Devils and many more.

“Robust, expansive, and sonorus...thick layers of shimmering spacious guitars sound sweeping and cinematic...but it’s the Matthies’warm interweaving vocals that remain the highlight.. Their delectable duets recall similarly transfixing male/female tandems like Low or Slowdive. Mastered by Frank Arkwright at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London”

Callow
Callow
A commanding amalgam of ambient doom folk rock, driven by emotive vocals, haunting atmospheres, and gritty, poignant guitar. Red's raw contralto is reminiscent of Vic Chestnutt while Sami creates a dark, primordial landscape with the simultaneous use of keyboard, percussion, and vocals. “What punk rock would have been had it evolved from The Velvet Underground’s airy slowness rather than their minimalism.” (Alexander Ortega, SLUG Magazine)
