"How cool underground music really can be."
Amazingly unpretentious music from this duo. If you're looking for busy arrangements and mountains of studio tricks, you can skip to the next review. But if you like smart pop delivered in a straight forward fashion with no frills or gimmicks, you'll want to check out the Immigrants. My favorite tunes here are "Jackie Boy," "Changemaker," and "Shot to Pieces." This here thing goes to show how cool underground music really can be.

"The next Morphine?"
The Noise, Rock Around Boston
~ Boston, Massachusetts ~
These newcomers sport an intriguing sound with an incantatory edge not too far short of compelling. Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine? Watch this space. Pick hit: "Subway Station." Tape of the month.
