Islands: "Hallways"

Aww shit, Islands up on some Jeff Dunham shit! Nick Thorburn's backing band has been entirely replaced by the skeleton crew from Jason and the Argonauts, but this time they're channeling their inner aggression into  outer groove. Even Thorburn starts to feel a little less flesh-encumbered as the tune moves along.

I listened to Islands' new album A Sleep & A Forgetting on Spotify the other day, and while I thought it was good I didn't get the champing-at-the-bit accolades the band has been receiving (i.e. 7.9 in Pitchfork). This makes me reconsider what I may have been missing, which is what any good video should do.
