Islands May 6, 2007

Posted by iweenie in Dig it!, indie, mp3, music.

Here is what today is serving up:

The band Islands is from Montreal, Canada (their Canadian accent is really evident on the song Don’t Call me Whitney, Bobby). Islands sprouted out of the kindred x-ray vision of Nick Diamonds and J’aime Tambeur, two rag-tag youths from the weird side of the tracks. Previously, they’d worked together in sludge-crust band The Unicorns. This time they’d be exploring a music best cataloged as other, in what seems a tribute to the timeless sound of great pop music. The album combines rhythms and sounds of cultures in the southern and eastern hemispheres, as well as a dash of rap. Listen to their stuff on myspace or grab this song:
