The Deportees on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

We have been in the studio over the last couple of weeks with Iain McPherson, recording three tracks for your lovely ears.

Tongue Can't Tell is up on our MySpace now, which will be closely followed by The Birth of Industry and All Night over the course of the week.

A reminder - our next show is with the brilliant Stornoway on Sunday 11th April, at Snafu. We all hope to see you there.

Lots of love,

The Deportees

Very nice stuff indeed. I like how it is a very simple song but seems like a lot of thought went into it at the same time. The xylophone (if that is what it was), backing vocals and keys add a lot to the track.

Certainly interested to hear the other songs now.

Awesome.

I was a little apprehensive about how the recordings would be in comparison to how the live performances I've seen were.

Simple reason for my apprehension being that the two times I've now seen you guys I've come away thinking just how epic the songs have sounded and I know it can be really tricky to get that same feel/vibe over on record.

As far as I am concerned, you guys have nailed that. The track still sounds so intricately fragile in parts but comes across "big" in all the right places - just as it does when played live.

I can't wait to hear the next couple when they go up.

:up:

It sounded exactly how i expected it to, which meant that i didn't like it, which in itself is a shame.

As far as the recordings go it was well delivered and sounds great musically though so any praise is warranted as far as i'm concerned.

Really impressive as expected. Pretty much miles ahead of anything coming out of this area or anywhere else at the moment in terms of sheer quality.

But, since this is the feedback forum, I feel I have to say there's something about this recording (Tongue Can't Tell) that doesn't sit quite right, and I think it's the drums. It might be the snare sound, which is a bit dry and doesn't quite mesh. Or I think it might be that the drums aren't quite 'in the pocket' and seem to almost drag a little. Sounds a bit like Christy is almost trying to play too perfectly in time and it could just be a bit more relaxed I think.

But to be honest that's not even really criticism, it's just feedback for the sake of it.

I'd buy it.

Sounding most enjoyable. When will these songs be available on cassette?

Might release a single in the summer. Pop along to Snafu on April 11 to hear them as they're really meant to be heard - loud and in yo grill

"The Birth of Industry" is superb. I wasn't really sold when I heard the first track, but this one's really enjoyable and certainly lives up to all the hype. I'll be sure to pop along to your next gig.

I think I was expecting something more after reading the recent gig reviews.....the songs are decent enough though. Vocally reminds me of both Elvis Costello and Roddy Woomble circa 'The Remote Part' for some reason....

I don't remember either of these songs from the gig I was at, which suggests to me that these aren't the strongest tracks you have...

Tongue Can't Tell is a really nice track, but sells Deportees a bit short in my opinion - the live experience is way better than this track would suggest.

The Birth Of Industry is much better, and is closer to what you can expect live - really really enjoying listening - I love the lead vocal - sounds totally effortless, but absolutely spot on. I like the deeper vocal, someone above mentioned Roddy Woomble, who also delivers the deeper vocal absolutely spot on. Far better than the whiney high pitched pop tarts you hear these days...

Stornoway support slot is a beauty - if either of you two Deportee muthas could text me everyday from now until then to remind me I'll do my best to be there. I've been an avid Stornoway fan since I first heard them on the wireless about a year ago. They're nearly as good as Deportees ;)

All week, I've been trying to put my finger on who the singer sounds like and, after much arguing with the Mrs, it's that guy from Doves. I can now sleep at night.

Nice harmonies too!
