I came across an album by Sasha Ilyukevich and The Highly Skilled Migrants in one of the secondhand bookshops on Charing Cross Road during my fruitless quest to find a copy of NeverSeconds. I was tempted to pick up a copy, instead an illegible business card.

Whether these haunting melodies, all in Russian, are on the album I came across, I know not.

The one place the album should be, where it is not, is bandcamp.

Very Dylanesque, guitar and vocals shades of Mark Knopfler, at times shades of punk, at times dark melancholy.
