Montezuma Fire Machine w/Deep Machine & Opposite Box
As December wrapped up and the 2013 news cycle wound down, one of the biggest talking points among the very nerdy, very insular world of music criticism was a piece called “That’s a Bad Lyric and You Know It.” Written by James Toth — better known ’round these parts as singer-songwriter Wooden Wand — the essay took the rock community to task for letting Haim-fisted, vapid lyrics slide when things have reached a remarkably low ebb. Think of the essay as the indie-answer to that “Why Country Music Was Awful in 2013” video that was going around. Anyway, this eventually brought us to the topic of lyrics we actually do like, and the answer won’t surprise you: There aren’t any. Which is why we dig so hard on progressive-psych outfit Montezuma Fire Machine — you can go wrong when you let the instruments do the singing.
