Manchino – Artificial Love EP (2018)
Manchino is comprised of four musicians – Drew Rachel(vocals), Randall Broome (guitar), Floyd Pourchot (bass), and Jeff Blackmon (drums). Inspired by their extensive record collections, Manchino gives a sense of hope for the future of rock and roll by infusing their influences of the past and present with originality and ambition to be a successful rock and roll band.
Artificial Love is an EP written and recorded by Manchino. These eight songs were recorded over the course of a few months in Eugene, Oregon. Artificial Love EP was mastered by Thaddeus Moore at Liquid Mastering in Eugene, Oregon.
Music has been a passion of ours for a long time and we are driven to produce great music daily. Our band “mission” so to speak is to one day be named with some of the greats while enjoying the journey there. We’ve hit a stride and are staying busy to produce more music! Much of our influences come from the 70’s but we make sure not to limit ourselves and stay open minded to many different rock genres in the writing process. We keep it fun, we keep it rocking.
These guys just sort of came out of nowhere recently making some waves in the underground scene. They’re not ‘Doom’ by any stretch, but for those that follow the charts, you know that is not a prerequisite to be featured. This is some top shelf rock and roll folks. Read the bandcamp blurbs and take a listen to the tunes. There is a little something for everyone to enjoy and believe it or not they are generously giving away a shit load of bandcamp codes that we know you all love. We can’t wait to see what these kids do next. ~Bucky Brown (Doomcharts)
Resident Bandcampers take:
If their music is any indication of their record collections these guys have the hottest stack of wax in town. The music jams with funk-ridden groove and a Soundgarden meets CCR vocal prowess. The quirky rhythm keeps you panting for more while the guitars riff out hooks galore. ~Bucky Brown (The Ripple Effect)
Man O Man!
Grand Funk, Fleetwood Mac, Doobie Brothers, Allman Brothers meets Greta Van Fleet.
I’m kind of joking about GVF. This is excellent! ~’Papa’ Paul Rote (Doomed & Stoned)
This’ll kick ya in the feels. You’ll be blindsided by the groove. Doobie Bros. + Allman Bros make a blood pact and the brotherhood grows… I would NOT be surprised in the slightest if these guys become huge within a year. Outstanding, truly. ~Andy Benson (Nerve Salad)
Manchino demonstrate such keen audio awareness of past and present, it’s only natural they should channel those phonic powers into a future-enduring treasure. Every element of ‘Artificial Love’ is in fact genuine, and possessed of timeless quality. From Drew Rachel’s classic, honey ‘n’ gasoline-greased preaching to the blistering, branding iron guitar and piston valve drum work, here abides a vintage vessel and kindred keeper of rock ‘n’ roll’s wayfaring flame. Favorite track: Lag. ~Mike O’Sullivan(Bandcamp Legend)
