Currently best known for having Carl Newman's niece in the band, Victoria act Immaculate Machine is set to make its own name matter. The band recently hooked up with Mint Records, home of the New Pornos, and will be releasing its new album, Ones and Zeros, on September 6th.
Ones and Zeros will be Immaculate Machine's second full-length effort; their debut, Transporter, came out in May 2004. The curious can download a few songs for free at the trio's official website, immaculatemachine.com.
Seeing as their fates are intertwined with those of the New Pornographers in more ways than one, Immaculate Machine will be accompanying the power pop powerhouse on their fall tour of the continent. Most dates have yet to firm up, but with the addition of its solo dates, Immaculate Machine fans have many a chance to see the band in action this year.
