Song premiere: Ape Machine, “Give What You Get”

Posted by on March 2, 2016

apemachinePortland quartet Ape Machine just recently released a new EP, Coalition of the Unwilling, on the Heavy Psych Sounds label. Starting next week, the band will be heading out on a tour that will find them playing at SXSW and the Fuzzed Out Fest. And today, we’re premiering “Give What You Get.”

The song is a riffy, high-energy rock song that reminds us a bit of Queens of the Stone Age, which is a compliment. Bluesy and not too heavy, but fun and upbeat, this is a great introduction to the band. Listen to “Give What You Get” and check out the band’s website. Coalition of the Unwilling is out now via Heavy Psych Sounds, and you can buy it here.
