Many musicians have day jobs to make ends meet. However, few artists maintain the lifestyle kept by Gregory Alan Isakov. The Colorado-based indie-folk artist is a full-time farmer who sells vegetable seeds and grows various market crops on his three-acre farm, while also tending to a thriving musical career. The multi-instrumentalist wrote and recorded his fourth full-length studio album, Evening Machines in a studio housed in a barn on his property. As its name implies, the dark indie rock and folk populating Evening Machines possesses a dusky hue. The album came together via an organic process rooted mostly in solitude. Isakov sketched out songs himself during marathon studio sessions that could stretch up to 14 hours for many months. He recorded all the instruments and slowly intertwined the band. It’s an intimate album that encourages close listening and contemplation.
