Marco Machera Releases “Dime Novels”, Featuring Tony Levin
Italian bassist and songwriter Marco Machera has released his sophomore album, Dime Novels. The effort includes a host of special guests, including fellow bassist Tony Levin on “Out of Blue,” drummer Pat Mastelotto, guitarist Markus Reuter and more.
With an interesting cast of characters, Machera offers up a quirky take on pop music.
“Dime Novels is a beast. Pretty much like my first album, One Time, Somewhere,” he states. “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.”
