Islands? So this is what pitchforkmedia.com was all excited and riled up about last year? This is exciting, newsworthy stuff, eh? Really? Wow. If so, then I’m deeply out of touch. Sorry. This is simply boring and full of itself in a very run-of-the-mill way. That said, at least the record sounds great. Engineer Ryan Hadlock is an excellent producer and Bear Creek Studio in Washington State is excellent. Go there!—Arlie Carstens
