Marco Machera’s sophomore album, “Dime Novels” shall be officially released on January 28, 2014 via global distribution through Innsbruck Records. This album features Pat Mastelotto on drums, Tony Levin on upright bass on “Out of the Blue” and Markus Reuter on the U8 Touch Guitar (one of Reuter’s own designs) on two tracks. Reuter also co-wrote one of the songs with Machera, “John Porno.” The album was produced by Machera and long-time collaborator, Francesco Zampi (who also contributed sonic treatments to the album). Jennifer Maidman (from the Penguin Café Orchestra) added some cuatro on “Ham On Rye.” Andrea Faccioli, a creative guitarist from Italy, plays different instruments on three songs. Kevin Andrews and Pete Donovan (both from the US) are featured on “The Sky.”

When asked about the title of the album, Machera said “Dime Novels is a beast. Pretty much like my first album, One Time, Somewhere. But I’m going further with this one. I’m still exploring the possibilities that a pop song can offer: I just love the idea of deconstructing the pop song formula and toying around with its elements. I think “Dime Novels” sounds like an adventurous pop record. It’s quirky, imaginative, cinematic at times. Each song has a distinctive feel. As Adrian Belew says: “Too much of today’s music is fashionable crap dressed as artistry.” Machera specifically wanted to go the opposite way.

Machera’s first album, ‘One Time, Somewhere‘ was very well received, so it made sense to make a second one. When asked about the meaning behind the lyrics, Machera stated “…as usual, I talk a lot about myself throughout the songs, but there are cultural references and bizzarre elements here and there. Lyrics could inspire the music and viceversa. For instance, “John Porno” originated from a funny story I was told by Markus Reuter, so I worked on the words first. Working on “Out of the Blue” was like writing the soundtrack for an imaginary noir film. ”The Ugly Song” is a provocative track about (not) getting radio airplay. But I’ll stop here – I don’t like to talk too much about my lyrics. I prefer the listener to discover them when listening to the album.”

‘Dime Novels’ is now available via Pre-Order on iTunes - Dime Novels
