Press For Western Transport

“Western Transport is the best LP of any unsigned act in Montreal” –

“This album from Canadian James Irwin speaks for itself as one of the finest singer songwriter albums to emerge in recent times.” Bandcamp Hunter

“A rich yet directed production reminiscent of Bill Callahan or Will Oldham makes Western Transport well-suited for easy listening and atmosphere, but it absolutely shines when given full attention.” – Cody Django Redmond

“(10/10). It’s flawless and well crafted in style and atmosphere. No repetition, just slow development from song to song. And this slowness results in a beautiful album, just right for lazy summer nights.” – Dying For Bad Music

“Western Transport is beautiful; smooth on all edges, but lyrically it’s jagged and strong enough to rip through your heart.” Herohill

Western Transport takes me out of any situation and replaces it with a static, hot vacuum outside of time and place” (Translated from original Danish)

“The balladry of James Irwin’s all newWestern Transport will make you swoon.” The Argue Job

“James Irwin has accomplished a stunning and beautifully refreshing debut that I just know will continue to grow in personality with every listen and will no doubt end up on my favourites of 2012 list.” Smallprint
