M010 release new single ‘Meat Dog’/’Calculator’

MEAT DOG/CALCULATOR
MeatDogSleeveFront_FinalBandcamp
THE NEW SINGLE FROM
MACH1NES 0F 1NDETERM1NATE 0R1G1N

Hobart duo M010 have been woodshedding on new material with a new sound for a while, punctuated by the odd gig here and there. During these gigs over the past 12 months you may have heard a couple of previously unreleased songs.’Meat Dog’ shows the inspiration of slightly melancholic, melodic, shoegazey sludge, whereas ‘Calculator’ hints at the more uptempo, noisey and simple punky interests the band has.

With an impending new body of work on the horizon, M010 thought it would be nice to release this transitional material as a 2 track single, both sides reflecting M010’s varied sound and influences.
Released on April 18, 2015, the single comes in a number of formats:

1. Download (mp3, FLAC, WAV) from http://moio.bandcamp.com/

2. A limited edition of 20 lathe cut 7″ singles – individually hand cut by Peter King in NZ, housed in acetate hand numbered sleeves and including download code for digital versions of both stereo and mono mixes.

3. A limited edition of 15 CD/DVD packs containing a CD single and a DVD of 5 M010 video clips.

Online versions of the the clips for both ‘Meat Dog’ and ‘Calculator’ are viewable on:

Thanks for your attention and continued support.

M010 are:
Aaron Metcalf – guitars
Matt Warren – drums/vocals/percussion/samples

M010 – 2014 Roundup and first for 2015!

MACH1NES 0F 1NDETERM1NATE 0R1G1N
were relatively quiet throughout 2014. We did a small number of gigs and spent a lot of time writing and recording. Since last blog post we appeared twice, firstly at the Brisbane Hotel with our old mate Caz and her new band Falconio in November.

and finally culminating in an appearance at Festable, Weegena on Monday Dec 29 (actually Tuesday 30th).

We get a brief mention here; always nice to be considered in some sense of a scene since we tend to sit outside or between them usually. “Mo1o (Machines of 1nditerm1nate Origin) is a two-piece of Tasmanian music veterans from the metal and noise scene, which comes out a lot in this project.”
http://stitchesinmyhead.blogspot.com.au/2014/08/australian-scene-report-revised-2014.html

M010 also contributed a cover track to the Godflesh anniversary tribute record and it can be heard here:
http://doinggodswork.bandcamp.com/track/mighty-trust-krusher

Although quite a while after the initial album release, Matt produced a psychedelic clip for the album track At The Party. Here it is:

M010 will be releasing a new single sometime in early 2015…stay tuned for release and launch details.
but prior to that our first gig for 2015: http://www.facebook.com/events/776278555785092/

Mach1nes 0f 1ndeterm1nate 0r1g1n – December 18, 2013

As 2013 draws to a close, M010 top off a busy and exciting year with a support gig for the mighty Melvins at the Brisbane Hotel in Hobart. We will be playing in the Front bar for ease of other act changeovers between the two stages. But a feature of this is that our side of the venue will be free entry. So, even if you missed out on Melvins tix, do come along from 8:00pm and celebrate with us a great year.
http://www.facebook.com/events/202428206593892/?fref=ts

This year we released our debut full-length album ‘1.0 – SYMPT0MS’ in July, first on CD, download and cassette (produced by the good folks at SONOPTIK).
http://moio.bandcamp.com/album/10-sympt0ms

But finally we had an important milestone occur, thanks to Julian T and Rough Skies where we released said album on 12″ vinyl. This was always the intention and we were very happy with the results, thanks first to the amazing mastering of James Plotkin (who played with Khanate, Scorn and OLD and having mastered some of the finest sounding records of late) and the good folks who pressed it for us at Gotta Groove, both parties based in the US.
http://roughskiesrecords.bandcamp.com/album/10-symptoms-lp

We also were part of the Community 3 compilation album also on Rough Skies, with our exclusive track ‘Rejection Letter’.
http://roughskiesrecords.bandcamp.com/album/community-3-a-compilation-of-hobart-music

We played with some great bands this year, too numerous to mention, you know who you are. We also played at great venues; of course The Brisbane and The Poobah, thanks to both for having us. We also made our first trip to Melbourne and played the Old Bar and the Public Bar, thanks for having us in the big smoke!

It’s been a good year and we are looking forward to 2014 and what it brings; which will be more recordings and shows home and away.

But in the meantime, folks in Hobart…come see us at the Brisbane for a set consisting of recent material and old favourites that will round out what was great year for us.
Thanks all.

M010 Update – October 3, 2013

Dear Machinists,
Just a little update to let you know what’s happening.

  • The vinyl album version of ‘1.0 SYMPT0MS’ on Rough Skies Records is starting to trickle into physical stores.

Currently Hobart folks can grab a copy from Tommy Gun Records:
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tommy-Gun-Records/104992746233

We are happy to mention Melbourne folks can go to the famous Missing Link/Record Collectors Corner co-store to get a copy:
http://recordcollectorscorner.com.au/

More stores to follow. Stay tuned.

  • And speaking of, here’s some reviews:

“Machines Of Indeterminate Origin – 1.0 Symptoms (LP)
Vinyl pressing for this Tasmanian industrial sludge two-piece. Predominantly instrumental, this gets very robotic and tribal in parts. Picture a more textual Godflesh yet even less song-based. You really have to strap yourself in but over repeated listens, I found quite a bit to like in this noise.”
— Ian Rogers: 50 Words Or Less – The Vine
http://www.thevine.com.au/music/news/50-words-or-less-august-2013-20130916-265281/

“Hobart-based duo Aaron Metcalf and Matt Warren first formed their Mach1nes 0f 1ndeterm1nate Or1g1n partnership back in 2007, and this debut album ’1.0 Symptoms’ sees them crafting sludgy metal-oriented explorations based around a comparatively stripped-down pallete of just guitar, drums and frequently unintelligible vocal elements. Having said that though, the eight tracks collected here manage to pack a dense downtuned punch that frequently reminds me of The Melvin’s sludge-heavy post-Black Sabbath leanings more than perhaps anyone else…..”

  • Current activity:

M010 are currently writing and recording new material and shortly the track Rejection Letter will be released on the “Community 3” compilation on Rough Skies Records. The song is exclusive to that release.

M010 will also be announcing some shows soon. Stay tuned.

1.0 – SYMPT0MS The vinyl release

ImageImage

M010 released their latest album ‘1.0 – SYMPT0MS’ for download/CD-r and cassette on June 28, 2013.

Now the Hobart duo are very pleased to announce the release of the album on 12” vinyl courtesy of Hobart’s Rough Skies Records.
Rough Skies is a proudly independent label formed by musician Julian Teakle with the intention of releasing and promoting Tasmanian music.
Beautifully mastered for the vinyl format by James Plotkin, the album is a hand numbered, limited edition of 100 copies.

The album is currently available to order from Rough Skies: http://roughskiesrecords.bandcamp.com and will also soon be in a number of stores throughout Australia. The band will officially launch the album at The Grand Poobah in Hobart on August 17, with other gigs to follow.

Described by a recent listener as having a kind of “ambient heaviness” with an “uneasiness that pokes it’s head up from time to time”.
M010 have a unique sound, but have been compared to The Melvins, Fudge Tunnel, Isis or Godflesh. M010 describe themselves as “slowed down abstract punk rock”.
A video for ‘Stab’ from the album has been produced by Sally Rees and can be viewed on M010’s official Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/MOIOHobart

The band are excited to announce the album in this format as the members have both had a long held ambition to release music on this format and it’s now come to fruition.

If you would be interested in reviewing this album, please contact the band at:
matt(at)mattwarren(dot)com(dot)au  and we can send you a download code for the full album.

About M010:
Aaron Metcalf: Guitar, percussion
Matt Warren: Drums, percussion, vocals
Formed in late 2007, M010 sits somewhat strangely in a no-mans land between Metal and indie/alternative scenes. The band have appeared on bills with experimental electronic artists, traditional death metal bands and multi layered pop. Although loud, sometimes harsh and noisy in places and experimental in nature, M010′s music is not inaccessible. Vocally, the majority of what’s ‘sung’ is nonsensical. This in part is inspired by the ‘instant composition’ technique employed by Damo Suzuki, but also has it’s basis in the recorded Dadaist poetry of Kurt Schwitters (amongst others).

Review excerpts of previous releases:
“In just 5 tracks M.0.1.0 manage to create an amalgam of many different influences, which in their unexpected combinations give the end result of a very distinctive, crisp sound.” – Heathen Harvest

“Listening to Tasmania’s Machines of Indeterminate Origin is like taking a casual trip towards the edge of an abyss…Opener ‘End Cred1ts’ starts with the gentle chime of a xylophone before the heavy crunch of guitars threatens chaos and suddenly my mind swims with visions of being transported through some blasted wasteland, towards an unknown, possibly dreadful, end.” – Darragh Murray, Rave Magazine

 

“Machines of Indeterminate Origin delight in a callous, unnerving mix of slow crusty doom. Repetitious trance inducing rhythms wallow in a huge wave of bludgeoning guitars while strange noises and fuzzy riffs march the listener into a world of nothingness and despair. Listen now” – Heavy Planet
