The harmonica finds a surprising niche amidst The Dream Machine's weighty downbeats and Justin Shear's flashy gutar solos, which were indubitably face-melting last Wednesday"

“The Republic reopened with a blast last Wednesday; Radio Rubber Room gave us The Dream Machine and Splendid Suns. It was a novel evening, as the TDM showcased their new drummer, Armani Williams (younger brother of Splendid Suns' drummer, Neko Williams). Rhythm flows through the veins of these young lads, and Armani's presence is an outright blessing. Frontman Jason Hunnicutt refurbished TDM's setlist with some new well-structured songs, all of which were lined with a softer, folkier feel. They weren't necessarily simple songs, but very concise, and the new sound was a fine digression from TDM's typically hard edge.”
