Mystery Machine Reunite, Prep New EP
Published Jan 19, 2012As the recent announcement of this year's Coachella festival proved, the '90s alt-rock reunion train has officially left the station. Well, Canadian shoegazers Mystery Machine have announced that they've also reformed, joining reunited 'Chella bands Pulp, At the Drive-In, Refused and fIREHOSE, as well as fellow Gen-X Canucks I Mother Earth and Treble Charger.
The Vancouver quartet have recently taken to their Facebook page to announce a planned EP and possible live shows. The EP in question still hasn't been given a name, but according to a December post, it looks as if it will contain six songs and was engineered by former hHead honcho Noah Mintz, who's previously done work for Broken Social Scene, Death From Above 1979, Stars and Constantines.
Although no live dates have been officially announced, Mystery Machine have asked Facebook followers to chime in on which songs they would like to hear live.
You can watch footage of a very recent (and noisy) rehearsal below and an equally noisy clip of "Pronto," a song from their new EP.
Mystery Machine's untitled EP proposed tracklist:
2. "Japanese Dads"
4. "Octagon Skylight"
6. "Bullshit Patrol"
