Stream Islands- A Sleep & A Forgetting

New MusicNicholas KindrachukComment

Islands is the pet project of Nick Thorburn--formerly of the Unicorns--and Anti- has seen fit to put up a stream of the band's new album, which is set to berelease today! If you have listened to the songs they have released thus far from the album “This is not a song” and “Hallways” you should have fairly good indication of what you’re in store for here. There is a real catchy friendliness to the tracks here, which is largely due to the slower nature of them. It is definitely a light avant-pop album, but there isn’t anything inherently wrong with that.
