The debut album from ex-Warm Soda bandleader Matthew Melton's ostensibly retro sounding psych-rock manifestation Dream Machine, The Illusion invokes names like Iron Butterfly, Heart, Deep Purple, Strawberry Alarm Clock, and the Doors. The logical next sonic step for the Austin, Texas-based artist's quartet (Warm Soda was a period-specific sounding power-pop unit), which also includes Melton's wife Doris on organ, synth, and vocals, Ruth Spencer on bass and vocals, and Dillon Fernandez on drums, have certainly captured the sound of the era, even going so far as to record their instruments tuned to 432 Hertz (a frequency that some audiophiles feel is more pure, and even transmits healing energy), not the standard 440.
