An Islands news & video moment…….

News via Musicslut via who knows where…. but coming off our Most Awesomest Tsururific Album of 2008, Islands is set to unleash Vapours on our asses in September! Start the anticipation!! My only concern? I read somewhere that in the less than positive response they got from critics and whatnot for Arm’s Way, they were doing shorter more concise songs or whatever. I hope not. I hope they just do what’s in their hearts & brains, everyone else can go to hell.

From ANTI, “Jamie Thompson rejoins Nick Diamond and Islands for Vapours, a record that flits back and forth between moody synthesizers and drum-machine-heavy beats, while remaining firmly rooted in the classic pop sensibilities and melodic hooks that Islands are known for. Produced by Nick Diamonds and Chris Coady (who has worked with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blonde Redhead, TV On The Radio, among others), this is the group’s most stunning work to date.”

Sounds good to me, set to “drop” (before) 9/22, here’s the tracklisting:

1 Switched On
2 No You Don’t
3 Vapours
4 Devout
5 Disarming The Car Bomb
6 Tender Torture
7 Shining
8 On Foreigner
9 Heartbeat
10 The Drums
11 EOL
12 Everything Is Under Control

Fuck yeah! I’m ready! Bring it Nick & Co! Speaking of the Music Slut, they also had a link to a youtube posting of a live recording of a song I adore, “Piece Of You” off of Arm’s Way, but all acoustic and shit! Sounds great…. Enjoy!


“Pieces Of You (Acoustic & Live)”

Cheers,
Tsuru
