According to the band  :   JUICE MACHINE is the live action analog electronic improvisational wife and husband duo of Roger Smith (Chefkirk, Control Valve Records, Insects with Tits) + Heather Chessman = Working in and around the confined genres of experimental noise, glitch, drone and  focusing on minimal tonal + textural audio - Rythmic pulses with sharp jabs of uneasy waves - Slowly shifting, always improvisational + always live, JUICE MACHINE  extracting the vital mineral sound.

Review  :  Sometimes it happens that you discover by chance a musical project that you like at first listen. And you wonder? where these people were all this time? ho need to be a noise or experimental project, can occur with any type of band and any style of music. A kind of fleeting, fast and almost early infatuation. I personally absorb some cost a little aggressively harsh noise projects. The same happens to me with the endless and almost empty ambient albums. But when it comes to mix both and also add new ones (glitch, chiptune, experimental, etc.). Enjoyed as a child. JUICE MACHINE have nothing to do with the overly repeated aesthetic gore, terror, bondage, etc.. but rather with a bright, optimistic, psychedelic  and almost "naive" aesthetic. JUICE MACHINE does not ask ‘What is music?‘ so much as it offers a (perhaps overwhelming) response to the question that it is an infinite amount of pathways, a virtual dimension which can outgrow the one we live in, a realm of thought and feeling which accelerates in scope and reveals more points of access the longer time goes on and the conversation continues existing. While the Earth may seem to be growing smaller, crowded, and always more fully understood, this alternate dimension grows larger, asks more questions, suggests more theories, and confuses even more sounds. In a sense, "Higher vibrations..." is the ultimate example of what I’m getting at; an answer to the creatively stunted, to the close minded music consumer who knows that they want more, but does not know how to accept more yet. As with any answer, it can be met with disagreement, but I encourage a good hearing out of what JUICE CREAM has to say, in lieu of your noise, just for enjoy of time it will exist in our virtual world before Orange Milk challenges us again with yet another. And it will.

"Ideas of permanence"
Year:    2014
Label:    Rainbow Bridge
Format:    cassette
Tracks:    1
Time:    31 min.
Genre:   electronic
Style:           Noise          Drone

I doubt if this recording was before or after to there right up here. All I know is that both were recorded in 2014 and made / distributed by the same label "Rainbow Bridge Recordings" on cassette format (tape). They are so close in time that there are hardly any stylistic differences between the two. Here the real couple: Roger Smith and Heather Chessman, also recorded a composition essentially of minimal noise, drone and experimental music. However this session is a little shorter, about 30 minutes, but is composed of a single long track. Me, I like both recordings and I don´t know which could be better, I can just recommended to listen to them and each one can decide. The artwork of the tape is a coloured and psychedelic creation of the own of the label, Justin Marc Lloyd. You can listen to this cassette in Bandcamp or to buy the physical tape  HERE .
