Islands played Pop Montreal | MP3s & Stuff


Islands, feauturing ex-Unicorns, played twice during the 2005 Pop Montreal festival. They opened for Beck, and they headlined their own Saturday night showcase at Academy Club. I went to the Academy Club show, but I had to drive back to NYC the next morning so I left before they went on (2 AM I think) (I saw openers Alan Astor & Holy Fuck though).

“Islands mixed folk with indie rock. 7 musicians were giving all they had, despite the overwhelming heat. Subtitle and Busdriver did a tag team collabo during one of their songs. The quick flow and rapid tempo worked really well. It was the highlight of the night and put a grin on my face.” [‘insert clever name’ was at the Academy show]

* There’s no date in his post, so I’m not clear which of the two shows You Ain’t No Picasso posted as MP3s for download.
* Said the Gramophone (who posted a studio MP3) said Islands was the best show he saw at Pop Montreal (also not sure which one he was at).
* Jim Guthrie played with Islands.
