New Immaculate Machine Video – “Dear Confessor” (Stereogum Premiere)

You probably know it, but Immaculate Machine is Carl Newman-niece Kathryn Calder’s other band, when she’s not busy being the newest New Pornographer. We’ve buzzed about “Dear Confessor” a couple of times over the summer, but the trio just came out with a video for the tune, so we’re spinning it all over again. Following Beach House’s shopping cart quest for Devotion, we have ourselves more on-the-run map reading from Immaculate Machine. Only this time it’s Canadian. That, and they’re in a van en route to a show and a smeary candy bar’s central to the storyline. Keep the song’s hook in mind: “Maps won’t show us where we’re going. / All they are is just the boring facts. / Relax.” That last part’s crucial, broseph.

You can’t get there on time, do it Drive-Away style. Speaking of Take Away, load this onto your iPhone:

In case you wanted the Mandarin Chinese version of the song, we have that, too:

See, we were serious. Immaculate Machines are literally on the road in support of their second album Fables, which came out on Mint in June.
