Jackie Boy Music Review — "This is a polished single!"

Takes me back to alt. anthems like
The Pixies "Here Comes Your Man" and Weezers "Buddy Holly"

by Ama Cruz

Jackie-BoyI'd just like to begin by expressing how much I love the name of this band, The Immigrants, as well as the name of this song, Jackie Boy - Requiem for a Slugger. It's got a great vocal performance that is equal to Black Francis or Thurston Moore. The instrumental performances of the drums and guitar takes me back to beloved 90s grunge alt. anthems like The Pixies "Here Comes Your Man" and Weezers "Buddy Holly" with the melodic guitars, roughness, yet all songs that make you want to dance -- like Jackie Boy. This is a polished single!

What a treat to come across this rock song, Jackie Boy. The Immigrants blend a cool melodic rock/surf guitar, a superb vocal performance reminiscent of Black Francis (from The Pixies) with the sound of baseball a cheering crowd, rooting for our underdog Jackie Boy. This is classic alternative rock at its best! Jackie Boy will be deeply appreciated by audiences who love alt. rock, grunge, shoegazing and noise pop. This will be appreciated by audiences who love to listen to live performances, or anyone seeking REAL and raw music these days, given the pop, synth and auto-tune world we're living in. - Ama Cruz

"How cool underground music really can be."

Summer, 1995

The Immigrants

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 Immigrants

These newcomers sport an intriguing sound with an incantatory edge not too far short of compelling...

The Immigrants

Their melodic instincts are quite keen and the vocalist's phrasing is original and chuck full of irresistible hooks. The next Morphine?
