The Machine Age rears it's head once again, this time as an ad hoc supergroup comprised of Pittsburgh Track Authority, Chase Smith, Karl O'Janpa and Phil Boyd. Boyd is known best for his songwriting and vocal skills which spanning genres including garage rock (Modey Lemon) and synthpop (TMEye), but on Cruise Control he flows over analog disco house for night drives. The track's noir-ish baseline crashes into phased, percussive piano. The dub may be the winner here as a lack of adherence to traditional song structure reveals an incredible group dynamic. Swirling space echo, live string synth and a drum jam take it out properly.
