if you liked The God Machine... then there is a good chance that you'll like Sophia and The May Queens but be felt left a bit wanting for the 'old days'... in that Sophia is a predominantly acoustic/folkier version of the quieter moments of The God Machine... The May Queens on the other hand remind me of a band such as Idlewild yet a little less mainstream in their approach.. The May Queens record is a far rockier project than Sophia has mostly been thus far although it should be noted that upon Sophia's last available album 'People Are Like Seasons' there were moments very reminiscent of The God Machine but not quite recapturing the latters former glory... nevertheless Decal... both Sophia and The May Queens are worth a look if you liked The God Machine... thats my opinion anyway...
... and whilst we're on the subject... I have never heard The Society Line (tgm's original name that released 1 demo I believe)... if anyone can point me in the direction of this or any The God MAchine live tracks/boots... I'd be well chuffed..
Personally, I love the Sophia stuff. If you like the less overtly aggressive God Machine songs such as 'In Bad Dreams' you are certainly going to be able to get into Sophia.
It's quite far removed from the GM approach, but the sentiment is pretty much the same. Kind of like the transformation Michael Gira has gone through over the years - his latter material is nothing like the former but you can appreciate and enjoy the quality of both.
