Moksha's "Mammal or Machine" is an adventurous hour long journey through the rock, blues, and electronic music genres. Fusing guitar and keys into longer, layered compositions has resulted in an album that easily ventures from genre to genre, even within moments of a particular song. There is an old spirit at play in many of these songs, as the organ of "God's Country" summons us for the Revival. This sort of throwback spirit contrasts nicely with the more modern styling of "Open the Door" and tracks in that vein. The album is ambitious in scope and succeeds because of its nifty arrangements and excellent execution. Moksha, currently based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, features the talents of John Heishman on bass and vocals, Patrick Gray on drums and percussion, Brian Triola on keys, organs and vocal, and Jeremy Parks on guitar and lap steel. A large assembly of notable artists appear on certain tracks on this album, with DJ Logic being one of the more notable contributers. The album features 11 layered, lush jams that range from ambient "chill lounge" tracks to feverish bluegrass romps. The resulting combinations are deftly executed and charming.
