Ben Golomb is a familiar figure on the Silver Lake scene and an ardent supporter of his fellow L.A. musicians. He’s also the first guy to tell you that a prime inspiration for his continuing to make music has been the Silversun Pickups – if not artistically, then the local heroes’ personality and sticktoitiveness. As Modern Time Machines, Golomb, along with Chanda Dancy, Dean Estrella and Nicole Smith, is working toward carving out his own sonic space. Fans of Swervedriver, Medicine and that other band with the initials SP should take note.
