My other new favorite band this week is Islands and the album is "A Sleep & A Forgetting" and it's on Anti, an Epitaph alias. Why are there so many great bands from Canada? Don't know - but here's another one. This is Islands' fourth album since 2006, thus, making them extremely prolific. Frontman Nick Thorburn had a falling out with Miss Take - bad for him, good for us and we have this dreamy, sad album with stellar vocals to check out - an effort they aptly peg as doom wop - gotta love that, or what? "Cold Again" will live in your head for daze, among the other beautiful bummers smartly done.

He is the tall guy lurking in the back of all the local rock shows.
