about

"The Gift Machine sound completely comfortable. Matthies' dry humor, his slightly frail voice, and the simple arrangements allow the songs to gently amble along, making potentially fraught subjects -- the impossibility of communication, personal failure, and the struggle to find motivation -- seem surmountable, or at least manageable. Andrea Gruber's voice aids to this end.Goodbye/Goodluck is the sound of an artist being allowed to mature, and there's something reassuring, if not inspiring, about that."

-Tiny Mix Tapes

"The gift machine recently released their fourth full-length on Knw-Yr-Own Records. Titled Goodbye/Goodluck, it recalls a lo-fi Beatles or Velvet Underground in a laid-back mood. Andrea Gruber’s delicate backing vocals soften Dave Matthies’s deep, Lee Hazlewood-esque lead lines as the instrumentation drifts and buzzes around them. Dreamy stuff."

-KEXP, Seattle, WA

"Two voices singing in unison. This is the kind of thing you can enjoy as slowly as possible: A true melt in your mouth, a formation of a cloud at the head of a lake, a snowfall, footage of any n^-5/3 process."
