Because as album art goes this is pretty out there, team. We’re talking about Islands’ forthcoming Arm’s Way, which has inspired a few gushes here and there. And by the LP’s newly revealed artistic rendering, the way of the arm is a trippy and quasi-Biblical one. There are arms, at least. It’s best expressed pithily, so the one word review: Whoa.
If you’re ready to start scrolling again, we decided to end here with a trio of tunes from Islands’ much loved SXSW set at the Cedar St. Courtyard last month, including a couple of newbies and a “Whalebone” with Subtitle getting strangled by a mallet.
“VERTIGO (IF IT’S A CRIME)”
“WHERE THERE’S A WILL THERE’S A WHALEBONE”
