San Francisco-based band Sporting Life recently released a collection of songs recorded over the past year and a half, simply titled Singles. The first, well, single from the album is "Immigrant" -- a smooth, mature take on slightly retro-tinged indie rock. Chilly, metallic guitar riffs are paired with even, laidback layers of Shins-esque vocals and exacting bass and drums; the subcutaneously existing shifts in "Immigrant" are hypnotizing and beg for the brief song to be put on repeat.
