Islands w/ Idiot Glee
Bar Pink is putting together its first all-ages show at Queen Bee's Art & Cultural Center, and featuring the band, Islands, who will be supporting their new record "A Sleep & A Forgetting."
The following is an excerpt from a recent interview with Vulture:
Last fall, Nick Thorburn (also known by the stage name Nick Diamonds) fled New York. The ethereal-voiced singer behind such indie-rock acts as Islands, the Unicorns, and most recently, Mister Heavenly his supergroup with acts including Man Man's Ryan Katner had gotten out of a serious relationship and needed to get away. He wound up in Los Angeles, crashing with a woman who "puts up" artist types; his pain and her piano were the central songwriting tools for the new Islands album, A Sleep & A Forgetting. Thorburn calls the hushed collection of songs, out next Tuesday (but streaming now on Vulture), his most confessional work to date.
Thornburn:"It's a confessional record. I was speaking in the most plain terms possible while still using the mechanics of songwriting. I was still trying to tell a story; I was still trying to use evocative language. But the main M.O. was to cut through the bullshit that I might have previously set up to protect myself. I had to fight with myself on this record during the writing process. I didn't want it to be a pitiable move, but it was very direct, not cloaked in motifs."
