Immaculate Machine


Mint Records; June 2007

The third full-length release by Canadian-bred indie kids Brooke Gallupe, Luke Kozlowski, and Kathryn Calder (of New Pornographers fame) is simple in concept, but intricate in execution. The boy-girl call and response of “Roman Statues” is reminiscent of pop purveyors Belle & Sebastian, while the guitar and cymbal buildup of “C’mon Sea Legs” has a decidedly New Wave feel. The punk-tinged vocals of “Pocket” are followed immediately by the keyboard and reverb-heavy “Blinding Light,” creating a juxtaposition of sounds that perfectly encapsulate the trio’s range.
