the ghost and the machine

Resonatorguitars, Vocals // Andi Lechner


Doublebass, Vocals // Heidi Fial


Drums // Matthias Macht

 The Ghost And The Machine plays rough and honest songs, intimate and untamed. Pristine elements collide and embrase eachother. The metallic cutting-edge overtones of the resonatorguitar meet the wooden shallow depth of the doublebass, carried by infectious drumming, and the dadaistic but yet pictorial vocals form sonic landscapes that pull you in.


The result offers insights to an undistored sound- and soulportrait.


There are no pictures in nature. A picture is peculiar to human beings, the ordinary content of the mind is abstract, amorphous and vague. That cut surface is the stomping ground of The Ghost And The Machine's new Album RED RAIN TIRES, which will be released in September 2018 on NOISE APPEAL RECORDS.




The band was formed 2014 by Andi Lechner, who is well known for his unique and virtuous Playing on vintage Resonatorguitars, and Heidi Fial, a groove- and sound focused Duoblebassist and multi-instrumentalist, and extended to a trio in 2016 with the drummer Matthias Macht.


The selftitled debut album was released in May 2016.
