Record Release Show!

Join us in celebrating the release of our third record, DARVAZA. Joined by horn-heavy power funk clan The Essex (BKNY), the night will feature debut tunes, special guests, and solid surprises.


Darvaza will be officially released Dec. 4 on Music ADD Records (Destroy Babylon, The Swearwolves, Void Union, The Pomps). Cop it on vinyl (!), CD, iTunes, and at MusicADD.com. Pre-order and listen to a preview at www.Macrotones.com.

Recorded and produced by the legendary Sean Slade (Radiohead, Pixies, Morphine, Mighty Mighty Bosstones) and the Boston Music Award-winning Benny Grotto at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, Mass., DARVAZA captures the dark and dense 9-piece in a warm and gritty analog setting. The six meticulously constructed tracks move from traditional afrobeat to funk, to rock, to ethiojazz – and stay persistently infectious with chunky horn lines and pulsating percussion. Darvaza has been compared to a soundtrack for a car chase film, or can be thought of as simply "music for spies."
