It’s been a couple of years since we last heard from Montreal sometimes-electronic troubador James Irwin, when he released his endlessly impressive second album Unreal. And now that its successor Shabbytown is upon us, we needn’t be Irwinless any longer. A fantastically strong collection of new tunes, it contains many memorable electronic songs too, with the synths and vocoders on “Natural Feeling” standing out for their subtle genius. We love!
James Irwin is on tour now in Ontario and Montreal, check the dates on his site, where you can also buy Shabbytown.
