We first posted about Melbourne’s Immigrant Union back in 2013 or so, and to be honest they had kind of slipped off our radar somewhat. By happy chance, we came across new album Judas and very quickly got ourselves reacquainted with their heady brew of country-psych, garage rock and power pop.
It is an excellent album. I mean a properly excellent album, full of twangy psychedelia, slow burning jams, urgent surfy guitars and hypnotic, slinky grooves.
We’ve shared a couple of our favourites – the brilliant seven minute opener Ballad of Bill Hicks and the propulsive, stream of consciousness simmer of early single New Win.
Listen, then go buy the album from Bandcamp here.
