Davenport Cabinet, the alternative folk rock solo project of Coheed and Cambria guitarist Travis Stever, will release their second album Our Machine tomorrow, January 15.
ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with the band to exclusively stream the entire album all day today. So you can listen to Our Machine right here, right now, in full, before it comes out. New music first, always, at ARTISTdirect.com.
Here's some background info on Davenport Cabinet, and their unique name, which you should read and absorb before you take a listen to the whole album.
After a 2006 debut release under the original moniker The English Panther, Stever renamed the project after The Davenport Brothers, a pair of 19th-century magicians whose famous illusion involved a large cabinet filled with instruments which seemed to play themselves.
In October 2008, the freshly-coined Davenport Cabinet released the album Nostalgia in Stereo, a mixture of new and old material inspired by Stever's realization that the most poignant moments of his life were always tied to some kind of album, soundtrack or song. We can so relate to that notion, as we are sure you can!
Stever's cousin Tyler Klose joined the project in 2011, sharing guitar, vocal and writing duties.
This is the second album under the Davenport Cabinet moniker, and you can try before you buy, right here, at ARTISTdirect.com.
It's not exactly like The Lumineers, The Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons, but it has a little bit of that influence, with a little more hard rock inspiration and some lushness. We think you'll like Davenport Cabinet.
