Published Feb 12, 2009Victoria indie popsters Immaculate Machine have dished details on their upcoming fourth album, which they've titled High on Jackson Hill.
This follow-up to 2007's Fables has been given an April 28 release date, a 12-song tracklisting and this bit of cover art, created by guitarist Brooke Gallupe's sister Caitlin, who's now on bass duty in Immaculate Machine.
As previously reported, the Mint Records release was recorded "in the comfort of a borrowed home" in Victoria with the help of Hive producer Colin Stewart (Black Mountain, Ladyhawk). And for those who know a bit of Victoria geography, that home was indeed perched atop a steep hill on Jackson Street, which explains where the band got their very literal album title.
Immaculate Machine only a have a trio of live dates lined up (see below) but knowing the way these things work (i.e., new album = new tour), we should see more announced shortly.
You can check out a trio of short song clips from High On Jackson Hill over on the band's website.

1. "Don't Build The Bridge"
