Immigrant Union is an Australian-American psychedelic folk/country band from Melbourne. It consists of Brent DeBoer (from The Dandy Warhols), Bob Harrow, Peter Lubulwa, Ben Street and Paddy McGrath-Lester. Courtney Barnett and her band consisting of Dave Mudie and Bones Sloane were members of Immigrant Union from 2011 to 2013 and feature on their second studio album Anyway.
Immigrant Union’s upcoming album is a shift from previous recordings – moving away from the country end of the sound spectrum, they approached their second record with a desire to produce a more layered, trippier sound. To achieve this elusive warmth, the band went literally to the farthest reaches of the earth: to Brent’s hometown in Portland, Oregon and to Altona on the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia. I put that song on All Songs Considered last Tuesday and the night before I came to NYC, I listened to their entire album. When it was over I listened to it again! It’s rare that I do that. Bob Boilen: NPR All Songs Considered. You want the cutting edge of 2014 psychedelic pop, this is it.
I put that song on All Songs Considered last Tuesday and the night before I came to NYC, I listened to their entire album. Is this album the catchiest, most melodically attractive release of the year? Very possibly. Delarue: New York Music Daily
