• gregory alan isakov Evening Machines (LP, £24.75)

    Gregory Alan Isakov’s established record label debut, Evening Machines, is poised to take his career to places yet unknown to him. Recorded at a converted barn studio located on Isakov’s three-acre farm in Boulder County, CO, the twelve track album was self-produced and mixed by Tucker Martine (Neko Case, The Decemberists) and Andrew Berlin (Descendents, Rise Against).  Since his debut in 2003, Isakov has self-released three full-length studio albums on his independent label Suitcase Town Music, with over 370,000 in sales, and has toured extensively building a devoted worldwide audience. He has toured with artists including Iron & Wine, Ani DiFranco, Blind Pilot, Passenger, Josh Ritter, Brandi Carlile, and Nathaniel Rateliff.  Of the record—his fourth full-length studio album and first in five years—Isakov comments, “I’d work really hard into the night. A lot of times I would find myself in the light of all these VU meters and the tape machine glow, so that’s where the title came from. I recorded mostly at night, when I wasn’t working in the gardens. It doesn't matter if it’s summer or winter, morning or afternoon, this music always feels like evening to me.”
