Killed By A Crescendo

Rough Gem mp3

Where There's A Will There's A Whalebone mp3

Don't Call Me Whitney, Bobby mp3

Upon doing a Google image search for a picture of the fractured ex-Unicorns outfit, Islands, hardly any images are to be found relating to the group at all, unless their whimsical and charming tunes were induced by visions of tropical, far-away islands. Likewise, when you search for a picture of Nick Diamond, or J'aime Tambeur, the 2/3 of Unicorns that drifted, it's almost impossible to find a decent selection. However, if you dare to type in as a keyword search term 'The Unicorns,' you will find several pictures of all three of the former's members posed harmoniously in several photos. Even though the existence of The Unicorns seems to be well forgotten, Islands is bringing back the spirit of ghosty-goblin pop in a different light. The track "Where There's a Will, There's a Whalebone," is a merger between the worlds of hip hop and pop, sidelining another project of J'aime and Nick's, the hip hop group, Th' Corn Gangg, soon to release an album of their own. "Rough Gem" recreates the signature freak pop classic-ness of "Tuff Ghost," an favorite of anyone who has missed The Unicorns since their falling out in 2004. "Don't Call Me Whitney, Bobby" is a favorite of Islands' new album, Return to the Sea, and is a precious lovey-bit of guitar-strum fun. So even though Nick is fronting Unicorns in the picture above, he is still providing the same bittersweet and squeaky-clean tunes you're accustomed to. Sans the pink cape.
