The Unicorns Give Birth To Islands


the unicorns

Fans of Montreal's, The Unicorns, listen up! Members of that eccentric and madcap indie band, Nick Diamonds and J'aime Tambour (aka Jaime Thompson), have formed a more indie-pop-centric band called, Islands (perhaps after the many islands which the city of Montreal sits upon). Islands music is not as lo-fi as The Unicorns, but these two tracks, available exclusively thanks to Elliott Aronow of thesimplemission.com, are just as ear catching and melodic as the band from which this one has been birthed.

+ abominable snow
+ flesh

  1. "Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?" is one of my all time favorite albums, and one I have some of the most positive memories of. I'm really looking forward to the next project by the members of The Unicorns. However, there's one member of said band that never seems to come up in the press...

    This page was úber difficult to find with "J'aime's" horrendous description of the band and its title, but it was most definitively worth the hour of googleing and oogling through porn and other rif raf, to hear some of islands new splendiferous music.

    I love both these songs, but I'm more partial to Abominable Snow. Can't wait for the album.

  6. Someone should look a little harder for the new Alden Penner material, It's quite good. I have some of his new songs and an exclusive un-released interview with him. Contact me if one is interested. protectthisone@hotmail.com
