The Unicorns discuss possible reunion


The exciting reunions keep coming. Alden Penner of early 2000s-era Canadian lo-fi pop trio The Unicorns was just interviewed on a Kreative Kontrol podcast, which Pitchfork transcribed:

But, Penner added, “the important thing right now is that we might play some shows and maybe even record some new material while we’re at it. These are all maybes, which have been thrown out there a lot. I guess good practice is that you do what you say.”

“We might arrange a handful of shows,” Penner said. “We’re definitely talking about playing together and seeing what happens. And we’ll probably do some shows in the major cities we’ve played in-probably Toronto, Montreal, New York, L.A., Vancouver–that sort of thing. Whatever’s feasible and it being conditional on it being fun for us to do.”

So details are still up in the air, but this sounds like something to look forward to.

Alden Penner just released his debut solo album, Exegesis (stream it), and Nick Thorburn keeps busy with Islands these days.
