Album Review

Some bands struggle to walk a line between light and heavy or choose one path or another, but Immaculate Machine have worked out the not-so-simple art of serving both masters at the same time. On their second full-length album, 2006's Ones and Zeroes, the charming frailty of Kathryn Calder's vocals and keyboards are faced off against the significantly more aggressive textures of Brooke Gallupe's guitar and vocals and Luke Kozlowski's drums and vocals, and in the studio the two sides have found a way to reinforce one another. The loud report of the guitars shores up the less muscular textures of the keys, while their gentle melodic patterns prevent the six-string attack from overwhelming everything else, and when the three members of the band harmonize, the results are at once beautiful and robust, capable of articulating an impressive emotional spectrum. The trio have also written some very engaging songs for Ones and Zeroes, from the runaway thunder of "No Such Thing as the Future," to the conflicting emotions of "So Cynical" and "No Way Out," and the gentle but telling recollections of "Statue," and while the arrangements are simple, they also fill the musical and philosophical spaces with beauty and elegance, and the no-frills production by John Collins and David Carswell serves the material very well indeed. It would be burdening Immaculate Machine to call them the great new hope of indie pop, but Ones and Zeroes is evidence they're a band with great talent and promise, and they're already starting to live up to it; it's lovely and impressive stuff.

Customer Reviews

Just plain great.

I really like this album. Why? It's just plain great. Quality hooks and persistently memorable melodies support strong lyrics throughout. Somehow it has the feeling of honesty. I also appreciate the boy/girl vocals. This seems to be coming back into vogue (did it ever leave?) and in a fashion that I'm really enjoying. They manage the pop staples of boy/girl, upbeat sound, keyboards, tambourines and jangly guitars without getting all sickly and annoying. I can and frequently do listen to the album on repeat several times through. I'm happy to give it 4/5. While writing this review, I listened to the album again looking for something specific to criticize, but I couldn't find anything substantial. The only reason I don't give it 5/5 is that I find myself searching for a little more variety. However, that's really just a nitpick. It's a great album.

Best of the Best...

Immaculate Machine!!! best indie alternative group ever. Three part harmonies, vocals by all members of the group, which is made up of Brooke Gallupe on guitar, Kathryn Calder on keyboards, and Luke Kozlowski on drums. Each with a unique sound when blended together creates a sound that almost none can compare. Kathryn is very close, if not is, the best female vocals I have ever heard. Credit must go to "The New Pornographers" who made Kathryn a very well known name in Canada and the U.S. Their new song "Dear Confessor" is filled with catchy tunes and is hard not to get hooked the first time when listening to it. I'm hoping this song is from an up comming album, which i will not hesitate to buy. Favourite songs: Army, Statue, So Cynical, Two Places, No Way Out. Their first and second albums, which regretably are not available on iTunes, are also packed with great tunes, and amazing lyrics. "Death of a Rockstar" and "Sky Scrapers" are exspecially powerfull. "secret" from their second album, uses Luke as the lead vocals, You do not here Luke very much but it is clear from this song that he is just as capable as Kathryn Calder and Brooke Gallupe. Special recognition must go to Kathryn, who since the band is void of a base player, fills in with her left hand playing the base line on keyboard, and right hand playing the main sheet music, accompanied by some of the greatest vocals ever heard. Brooke, with an amazingly powerfull voice keeps the listener on edge with every note. Luke, never misses a beat, not overpowering, but a perfect level of noise. When all three are mixed it is clear that Immaculate Machine may be the marker for future indie alternative rock bands. Congrats guys on making it this far, keep going, if you don't, I for one will be exremely dissapointed.
