Album Review

While Immaculate Machine struck a graceful balance between their lighter folk influences and tough rock guitar on their earlier sides, with their third album, 2007's Fables, the group has learned to bring its two sides together almost seamlessly. On Fables, Brooke Gallupe's scrappy, energetic guitar lines have calmed down just a bit without robbing them of their melodic drive or lift, and Luke Kozlowski's drumming has gained some muscle and dynamic presence that complements Gallupe's work nicely. Kathryn Calder's keyboards and vocals remain lovely and emotionally telling, and the group's songwriting has hit a new peak on Fables — these are clever, whip-smart pop tunes performed with exemplary craft and a joy that keeps the slicker moments from ever sounding formulaic. Though the group and producers John Collins and David Carswell have brought in some ringers for these sessions — string players, lots of backing harmonies, even a musical saw on one track — the finished product still sounds admirably intimate and straightforward, and these stories have gained a greater level of emotional maturity without losing touch with the group's youthful spunk (dozens of bands have written songs about what a drag their nowhere home town is, but "Nothing Ever Happens" is one of the first to make it sound like they've learned to alchemize boredom into fun all by themselves). Fables is a richly enjoyable album from a band that continues to grow in exciting and pleasurable ways.

Finally Found the Fables

Immaculate Machine does it again. First with "The View" then with "The Transporter" Then they signed a label and made "Ones and Zeros" after that I was completely hooked. If you're looking for a different but refreshing change from your usuall music this band has it all. Male/female vocals, with amazing talent in each one. The band is void of a base player so Katherine Plays base with her left hand on keyboard and melodic piece with her right hand. "Fables" is an amazing piece of music, Jarhand, Old Flame and Roman Statues are my favorites. The albums name seems to have a reference in Roman Statues: "Sell off your statues under the table. Let all your stories turn into Fables of time." Perhaps referring to the demise of the superior roman empire and how now all of their stories are more like legends, or Fables. Their three part harmonies and amazing music is a wonderful contribution to the band and album. "Jarhand" has some guest vocals which is clear at the end of the song when the line "It's all in your head Jarhand" is repeated with more then 3 voices. This is the best album I have heard all year, and I will not be surprised if it is the best out of those to come. Immaculate Machine started out with amazing talent and continues with growing optimism and aptitude. Congrats and I hope you guys continue with your music for a long time. BUY THIS ALBUM AND YOU WONT BE DISAPOINTED

LOVE IT!

This album is Immaculate Machine's best yet. The melodies and lyrics are quite catchy. If you liked Ones and Zeroes and Transporter, you won't be dissapointed by Fables. =)
