Islands – A Sleep and A Forgetting

4 ½ / 10

Islands are one of those bands I like to shit talk because I think they’re boring. And while I’m not ready to apologize just yet, this new LP isn’t half bad. Nick plays around with some eclectic songwriting and it comes out sounding sort of like Bright Eyes meets of Montreal, if that makes any sense. It doesn’t really work musically, but it’s an interesting sound. It gets weird when he starts playing Jimmy BUffet songs (I’m, sadly, only half joking).
