Islands

Time didn't allow me to update yesterday, ruining my streak of posting everyday. But anyways, here' s a nice, full update:

Islands

As most of saw, a few days ago I posted about The Unicorns. Well, as some of you know, The Unicorns broke up awhile back. So what are they up to now? To answer that poignant question, I give you Islands. Featuring 2/3 of the Montreal indie/pop/noise/dance trio The Unicorns, Islands picks up where they left off. It's danceable and noisy and full of goofy Canadian goodness. I'm not really sure what all they're up to at the moment, although I do know that they are touring. But anyways, here are two mastered demos from whatever they're working on. Props to Simple Mission and to You Ain't No Picasso for bringing this to my attention.
