Earlier this week I was introduced to the ethereal beauty of Sunbeam Sound Machine, a psychedelic rock band that can teleport you to a different universe through music.

That may be an exaggeration, but Sunbeam Sound Machine’s music personally makes me feel like I’m floating. It’s the type of music that you listen to when you’re looking for an escape from the real world.

Sunbeam Sound Machine can best be compared to Tame Impala or Post Animal. Its songs are beautiful rearrangements of distorted sounds and guitar riffs accompanied by soft, slow vocals.

Sunbeam Sound Machines Wonderer album is my personal go-to for when I am looking for an outlet or when I need a burst of creativity. 

I was first introduced to the most popular song on Wonderer, “In Your Arms.” Listening to this song for the first time is something that I wish I could experience again. It’s just one of those songs that play on repeat for as long as you can stand it, but you never seem to get tired of it. I think that this song perfectly embodies what psychedelic rock is all about, making listeners feel something that they can’t feel anywhere else or with anything else. 

Other songs off of Wonderer that have the same effect on me are “Infinity + 1”, “Autumnal,” and “Wandering, I.” Those are just some of my personal favorites, but each song on the album is a musical masterpiece. 

Goodness Gracious is Sunbeam Sound Machine’s latest album, which continues the collection of psychedelic rock sounds by the band. I highly recommend the songs “Seems Like You’ve Made Up Your Mind” and “Talking Distance” off this album for anyone willing to give Sunbeam Sound Machine a listen.

Sunbeam Sound Machine last put out a new song a little over a year ago. I’m unaware of what is yet to come from this band within the next year or in the near future, but I’m excited to be here for their musical journey!

In the background is a grey sky with mountains in the distance. The setting is in a desert, with white dirt all around and tiny brown bushes.


Letting Go

By Calvin L MillerWeb Content Contributor As I wrap up my time at Texas State University and KTSW 89.9 FM, I want to leave whoever may read this some words of advice and, hopefully, of hope. At the age of 35, which is by no means old, but still old enough to have gathered some life experience, I have been through some strange events. A lot is going on in […]
