Immigrant attempts the "5 inch challenge", an invitation from Brian Records to write two minutes worth of material. Fortunately, this prolific songwriter already has an arsenal of miniature tunes and so the whole challenge came pre-completed. No Claim is actually a record that looks back on a grand total of twelve two-minute songs from the plaintive, quirky and always beautiful song-writing voice of Graeme McNab.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 12 March 2015
This is a 12 track CDr featuring tracks of two minutes long weighing in at 17 minutes overall. What we have here are intimate vignettes which musically sound somewhere between a depressed and acoustic Teenage Fanclub and a particularly hushed James Yorkston. I’ve always liked singles and albums which feature lots of short songs - there’s a school of thought that by minimising time you can actually say what you’ve got to say pretty quickly and succinctly. Tracks like ‘Jao’ and ‘Liars’ are mini epics which come and go as quickly as you could say Jack Wilshire but are none the worse for it.
Immigrant's music is for firesides, late at night in a seaside cottage with just the sound of the distant roaring sea for company. Beautiful stuff, brilliantly packaged.
