“Eight Legged Dog” is just about the most magical, and glorious four minutes you’ll ever experience. The first single from String Machine’s upcoming album, Death of the Neon, is measured and stirring, beginning with a stillness and subtlety that carries you along.

And just as quickly and the journey started, it ends, leaving you reaching and eager to experience it all again.
