Islands - Arm's Way

Islands are a canadian band made up of former members of The Unicorns. They have a low key jazz slow pop sound. Great Lyrics and instrumentation. I think theres rappers in the band now. I saw a video of one of their performances where they just walked down the middle of the street playing, i think it was in Montreal. At one point the singer climbed on the hood of an oncoming taxi. Have to respect that, for arts sake. Anyway this is a much better produced album then their last which was good for beginners sake. For fans of acid jazz, reggae pop?, funky shoegaze? i dont really know what to call it, just check it out duuuuuuuuude. ahhh does anyone remember the band "Self" from 95/96 thats what these guy remind me of at some points. weird. peace
