Event Description


Immaculate Machine is a critically acclaimed indie-rock band from Canada. The group consists of Brooke Gallupe on guitar, Kathryn Calder on keyboards, Caitlin Gallupe on bass, Aden Collinge on drums and Jordan Minkoff on guitar. Leslie Rewega sometimes tours with the band playing keys and percussion. Brooke Gallupe sings most vocal parts, but Kathryn Calder often joins Gallupe on leads.

The band's name is taken from the lyrics of "One-Trick Pony" from the album One-Trick Pony by Paul Simon.

Often compared to the likes of The Arcade Fire, Immaculate Machine have been gaining increased fame and recognition through Europe, America and Canada. The band are signed under Vancouver’s Mint Records and their successful debut album “Ones and Zeros” was released in 2005. Since then, the band have been branching out further and further into the world, their next sight fixed on conquering China.


来自独立音乐王国加拿大的五人Indie Pop团体Immaculate Machine将在12月初到中旬在广阔的中国大地上进行一次包含13个城市的巡演。完美的机器?没错,他们的名字就取自于保罗•西蒙的那首名曲——《One-trick Pony》。

乐队至今为止已经发行了4张专辑。5个成员中键盘手Kathryn Calder是加拿大独立名团The New Pornographers的核心A.C. Newman的侄女。你也许不知道Kathryn Calder这个名字,但你一定在某个时刻听过她的声音。乐队曾经和Franz Ferdinand、The Cribs、The New Pornographers等多个乐队的乐手一起合作过。2007年发行的《Immaculate Machine’s Fables》广受好评,简约的轻柔和声,淡淡学院气质,没有华丽的伴奏,温暖的吉他推弦却抛洒光斑点点,仿佛有一个不一样的世界出现在眼前,多姿多彩。

这是一支会让人欲罢不能的乐队,虽然它没有那么刺激,不会在你听到节奏的那刻就会兴奋地晕过去。但是一定会有某些旋律一直在你耳边回旋,一遍又一遍。他们丰富地运用了简单的和声,打击乐和器乐,就像你在傍晚走在山间的感觉,你希望那种气味永远地留在心中。这不是简单的民谣或者独立音乐,Immaculate Machine一定会让你觉得,有种精神有种血脉延伸在他们可爱的创作中——那是种你从来没有听过的音乐。五个人合成一气,每个声音每个人都会在曲作中起到独特的作用。那会让人的生理都起反应。最近他们刚刚尝试演唱了一首中文歌叫《我想坦白》,一贯的有趣。

他们在今年刚发行第四张专辑《High on Jackson Hill》。你可以在官网上看到他们历来的专辑封面,图片风格统一,带有抽象意味的浪漫,就像他们的音乐一样,浪漫悠长,却绝不浮夸。
