The Gift Machine
"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

"Intelligent, well-done indie pop, if not quite the kind of thing that unshakably sticks in your craw.

-Richie Unterberger, Allmusicguide.com

"Matthies strikes many as a musician/producer/engineer who is in it for the art form, not for the money or glory. With his style, which is a suave and subtly infectious form of pop music with audible references to psychedelia and surf-rock, [Matthies] has the ability to turn a simplistic melody into one that becomes unavoidably engrained in a listener’s head. Matthies and Gruber show off an excellent vocal contrast in Matthies’ warmly musky grumbles and Gruber’s angelically high-pitched delivery. Their contrasting voices work so well together. "

-Obscure Sound

"Swimmy, bubbly pop doused in woozy holidays--that's the kind of music made by the Gift Machine, a quartet that takes cues from Guided by Voices, Apples in Stereo, Neutral Milk Hotel, and a little Dougie Martsch. It's dreamy and yummily executed"

-Portland Mercury, Portland, OR
