Here’s episode 2 with Failure Machine!

Here’s a few words about the band:

“Soul, baby. Failure Machine has somehow channeled the ghosts of late great soul/R&B artists, dirtied them up (in a good way)
electrified them. A grungier Sam Cooke, if ya get me. I’ve said it
before, and I’ll say it again. What is going on out there in Reno
lately? Another example of great music coming out of one-armed bandit
land”
