Originating in Seattle, there’s a spirited rock and roll sound heard on their new album Killer Instinct, which released in November and now has a music video for the song “Herculean Tasks,” which revolves around a somewhat suburbanized version of Alice In Wonderland. There’s Alice, of course but also The Mad Hatter and the Red Queen all playing their roles in quirky fashion, with a bit of VFX to make things surreal as well as humorous. https://rollingstoneindia.com/seattle-band-la-need-machine-herculean-tasks-video/
La Need Machine is one of Washington’s most underrated rock n’ roll gems, and if you’re someone who likes to take pride in their knowledge of must-listen music in any genre, Killer Instinct is an LP you need to familiarize yourself with immediately.
With Killer Instinct, La Need Machine serves up impressive rock and roll, full of oomph, contagious rhythms, and deluxe vocals.
Killer Instinct opens with “Herculean Tasks,” rolling out on pop-punk-lite guitars riding a tight rhythm as evocative vocals imbue the lyrics with intense, quixotic savors.
Tracks like “Negative,” “Hot Dog,” and “Herculean Tasks” don’t ask for us to sit down and pay attention to the aesthetical details they contain just to bask in the swell of ridiculous sonic virtuosity; they smash us in the face with adrenaline and affection for the standards hard rock’s elite used to hold on a universal level. They make me believe in this genre’s viability post-COVID, and I think I’m not the only one who will say so thanks to Killer Instinct.
Seattle’s La Need Machine are about to release their new album, Killer Instinct, this Friday, November 11th. In celebration of the release comes the title track “Killer Instinct” - a non-stop rocker that never lets its foot off the gas. It feels like it should be the theme song to an ’80s movie about a kid that comes back from rock bottom to win the tournament and their love interest.
Just in time for Halloween, we’ve got Seattle band, La Need Machine, with the new single “Scary Voices,” and its accompanying music video. It’s got a cool Concrete Blonde-like vibe to it, as we follow the fictional main character in an unwritten horror movie.
While their punchy drumlines and ripping electric guitar leads keep them grounded to the rock n’ roll genre, La Need Machine's lyrics and inspiration come from an ethical place that seek to help their community through monetary donation accumulated from their streaming revenue.
It’s hard just making a name for yourself in music today, let alone getting to the level a lot of the legends you look up to rest upon, but that isn’t stopping La Need Machine from putting out an effort worthy of such consideration in Killer Instinct. This is starting to feel like a good season for the rock n’ roll revolution this generation has been waiting to experience for themselves, and if La Need Machine can positively position themselves with the underground scene they’ve come to own so handily out of the northwest corner of the American circuit, I think they’re going to start getting a lot of the press attention they and many others like them have been vying for since getting their start.
Growing up in Seattle where they were able to draw from an incredible music heritage, La Need Machine developed a unique but classic North-West sound and ethic, and new song ‘Negative’ is a rocking good track. Jangling guitars and pounding drums provide the perfect backing for Dawn’s powerful vocals, supported by Carly on BVs.

La Need Machine grew up in Seattle and derived their sound from classic rock and roll and punk rock bands from Seattle and around the world.
Musical influences include Seattle bands like the Sonics and Nirvana, classic 1950's rock and roll artists like Eddie Cochran, classic 1960's British Invasion bands like the Animals, classic rock bands like the Who and Led Zeppelin, classic punk like the Buzzcocks and Generation X, and post punk bands like Green Day.
La Need Machine will play anywhere, any time -- as long as it is 100 percent convenient for us.
La Need Machine live in the present, although we do daydream about the future quite a bit. And it includes another new album in the not-too-distant future!
