NY Times Review: Darcy James Argue’s Infernal Machines

Nate Chinen’s review of Infernal Machines (New Amsterdam Records), the anxiously awaited debut studio release from Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society, appears in today’s New York Times.

“It’s a potent debut,” Chinen writes, “and the weight of its achievement feels properly definitive, like something the band has steadily been working toward.”

He adds, “Movement is the album’s unspoken theme, and fluidity its strongest subtext. He extracts just as much energy from a slow prowl, like the one on ‘Jacobin Club,’ as he does from the album’s livelier grooves, like the closing track, ‘Obsidian Flow,’ with its irregular pulse.”
