By now you've probably seen the glowing reviews for the Islands' debut. For some strange reason, I didn't expect to like this album but after several listens, I have to admit that it's pretty damn good. It's ambitious, no two songs are alike, and although it tails off a bit at the end there's enough there for me to believe that this band can carry the Montreal indie rock torch. This song really stands out for me, it reminds of a Gorillaz Demon Days b-side.
