Islands - Rough Gem

If you haven't heard, Islands is the new project from former members of Montreal's The Unicorns. They will release their album Return To Sea sometime in 2006 on Rough Trade Records. "Rough Gem" is the song that most people seem to be showing the most affection for so far, mainly because it is the closest Islands come to the angular synth-happy danceable pop of The Unicorns. Just compare it to "Tuff Ghost", from The Unicorns' Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?

Swans, Volcanoes are other worthy tracks... In fact, the record is incredible. Live they are something to see. The songs do not sound the same yet it is somehow better, which just prooves that Nick and Jaime are masters in their field.
