Product Notes

Bree Sharp and Don DiLego forged a successful writing partnership almost 15 years ago during the making of Bree's debut album, A Cheap and Evil Girl (Trauma 1999), which featured the wryly-scripted, cult hit "David Duchovny (Why Won't You Love Me)", and Don's critically praised, The Lonestar Hitchhiker (Universal-Kingcuts 2001). After completing work on what would have been Bree's fourth solo release, the duo decided instead to scrap what was mostly a straightforward acoustic album for a sound that incorporated the eclectic and electric collection of mis-matched instruments strewn throughout Don's Velvet Elk Studios. They created an audio collage without editing themselves, hi-fidelity at times forsaken, and birthed a quasi sci-fi based, fantasy, retro-twang-rock, pop-folk montage...perfectly highlighted on their debut EP, Robots in Love (Velvet Elk 2008). Featuring the heart breaking and biting lyrics that Bree has become acclaimed for, and Don's unique production and songwriting antics in tow. BSM have gone on to release SImple Joys EP (Velvet Elk 2010), featuring Simon LeBon from Duran Duran, and their "internet hit" banjo pop version of MIA's Paper Planes (Velvet Elk 2012). Additionally, their music has found a wider audience through the popularity of their music in commercials and tv, (especially "SuperConductor",) which has been featured by Victoria's Secret, Intel, MasterCard, Starz, Castle, and 90210. The band is set to release The DJ Stayed Home, the long-awaited follow up to Robots in Love. PRESS FOR BSM "Plenty of people will fall in love with them." - Stereo Subversion "Check out this band, they'll take you for a walk with robots in outer space." - The Deli NYC "I discovered this to be the most poignant love song I've heard in a long time."- The Burning Ear "It's a bit like Grandaddy, The Postal Service and The Ting Tings forming a super band." - Battery In Your Leg "This Beautiful Small Machines cover of M.I.A.'s "Paper Planes" easily won me over." - IndieShuffle "Have you ever heard a song before that could most aptly be described as electro-country? Beautiful Small Machines are undoubtedly one of my favourite discoveries of 2009 so far." - Into The Groove UK "Oh my my, I have found the most amazing electronic/pop band ever. Not only does the singer actually have an amazing voice, but she writes the songs AND the beats are phenomenal...so fresh and original...Bravo Beautiful Small Machines, bravo." - Earbuds Blog "This poppy, energetic, tightly executed ditty grabbed me in the first few seconds the way few songs have in a while (since the Fleet Foxes' White Winter Hymnal, I reckon)...and the kind of simple but well crafted lyrics that make an absolute classic song." - Random Kitty "There is actual heart and emotion in these songs. A mix of pop hooks with an space-age rock feel." - Digging For Days "Beautiful Small Machines recently released a cover of MIA's smash hit "Paper Planes", turning it from a kind of pop- kind of hip-hop mashup into an incredibly well done indie song...breathing life into a track that I thought had lost some of it's original "coolness" due to it's being overplayed." - The Music Ninja "I rarely post folk songs, actually I don't think i have posted one single folk song, but this is definitely an exception. Now you may be asking, 'you're posting a folk cover of Paper Planes?!', why yes, yes I am, it is incredible." - Vinyl Wall.
