A few months after their debut EP “La Machine Qui Ne Sert à Rien”, La Machine (a collaboration of members of the French electro acts Position Parallèle and Celluloide/Thee Hyphen) is back with a new 6 track EP, “Vamos a la Playa”, which you can order here.

To be released on June 23rd, the first track on the EP is a minimalist and mechanical cover of a song by the Italian Italo disco duo Righeira, released in 1983 as the second single from their debut studio album, Righeira (1983).

Also included on this 6-track EP is a cover of Jacno’s 1979 track “Rectangle”.

Here’s a short teaser for the new EP.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
