The new album from Immigrant is quite a gentle offering...which is exactly what I thought it was gonna be like. After all I do know about every artist working in the UK at the mo.Which comes in handy as Immigrant doesn't seem to exist on the old interweb. I typed in Immigrant and the only band called Immigrant that I saw were some cock rock looking muthercrushas from Stateside. Nothing about this sad voiced troubadour, which is a shame really. Mebbe I need to look a wee bit harder. Or maybe I should stop looking with my eyes and look with my heart. That usually works so here goes...nope, nothing yet. God I love obscure artists and as I said earlier I know about all artists in the UK and all that. I love finding out about the different record labels and really love being seduced by the new bands...I don't actually. I'd much rather the dream I had came true, in which loads of bands that I like and some which I don't were put in a massive ditch and were culled like cows in the awful foot and mouth outbreak that happened a few years ago. I'd much rather be at home with a jar of swarfega and a few copies of Amateur Photographer, but you know life has its own way. This new album by Immigrant is as every bit as touching and lachrymose as his previous efforts. It's a collection of introspective sounding songs, all done with a sincerity and fondness that you might associate with Elliot Smith or a less annoying Jeff Buckley. All the tracks are quite the emotional journey, my particular fave at the moment being track three, the rather moving "Dengue Ba Jengue" which uses some really nice sounding keyboards to full effect. The chord changes in this song are great. The rest of the album is also rather fine. I reckon this is his best record so far, and if you like gently strummed slow burning soulful songs or anything else by this guy then cough up some dorras and let Immigrant into your life. (I intend to end all my reviews like a bingo caller so here goes....) A bag of pork scratchings...Number 66...
