The Weather Machine

The Weather Machine celebrates their 10-year anniversary with two nights at the White Eagle! It'll be a heartfelt, nostalgic performance as they perform on the same stage where they hosted their first concert ever exactly a decade ago!

This comes a few months after the release of the project's fourth studio album. "Applecore" finally captures the rollicking energy, precision, and depth that Weather Machine live shows are known for. It will be a treat to any longtime fan or newcomer.

At first listen, the songs are fun. Tracks like "Protection" and "Boxes" contain cheeky musical reference to retro psychedelia, while also remaining grounded in catchy pop rhythms. Songs like "Uncle John" and "Applecore Part II" revel in the gaudy arena rock its creators grew up on.

Dig a little deeper though, and the songs become beautifully bittersweet. Beneath the surface, Applecore is thematically rooted in questions about the soul, as Slater Smith, the project's lead, examines his own connection to a late capitalist world that he sees as both shadowy and sparkling. The creative contradiction may be best summed up in the final words of the record:

"The world's gonna end, and when it does I want to be in it. In the dust and the rain and all of the negative space. And if the world's gonna end, I want to be here with you in it, and not in my head"
