Wisdom Machine Poison City

The Bennies

The Bennies genuflect at the shrine of partying more than John Belushi and Andrew WK combined. Wisdom Machine is belligerently raucous, relentlessly delivering good times and accentuating their usual horn-flecked party-punk with electronic flourishes, as on the ball-tearing "Party Machine". "Maybe We Could Get High", "Legalise (But Don't Tax)" and Sabbath-lite "Corruption" are full of guitars, hints of ska, gleeful keys and never growing up. Wisdom Machine soundtracks an unhinged fever-dream house party full of triumph, regret, and bong water stains on the couch that match the amount of times some dude named Jeff says, "This is a fuckin' great party, man."
