Cliff Hillis has become one of the most interesting artists in indie-pop in the recent years.
Following his stunning record "Dream Good" from 2012 his new EP "Song Machine" is out now (on vinyl, CD and digital).
The EP is and extremely strong collection of songs:
Song Machines opens with Dashboard, whose increasing intensity impresses.
Just One More and Hang On To The Moment are a more laid back tracks with a haunting melody.
Tonight is my personal highlight (if you can choose one song from the record - which is really hard).
Could You Be The Enemy is pure classic Power-Pop - perfect from start to end.
The final track (Goodnight Sunlight) could have been a good Fab Four single - sounds like flattery but fits quite well.
Listen to all 7 songs here:
I also clearly recommend his fabulous cover songs on the records Drink Toast to Innocence: Tribute Lite Rock (Shake It) and Here Comes The Reign Again (Wouldn't It Be Good).
