    *NOTE: This CD has a tracklist that differs from the intended tracklist due to a printing mishap. When you buy it here you will also get a download in the proper order but alas, you'll have to burn your own CD.

    A nice gent from the UK (Jed @ Post Pop Records) made these, and they look/feel amazing. Weighty. Also notable for being the only format where we agreed to allow these albums side by side. A real collectors totem.

about

TASTE, Islands’ 6th record, is a muscular, crystalline affair, with the majority of the music electronic, buoyed by drum machines, programming and arpeggiated vintage synths. The songs still flirt with Islands’ bread and butter; evergreens such as ennui, remorse, and a general disenchantment with the modern world hover over the tracks, with lines like “we got so thrown, we felt lost at home” and “steal a little moment, lose it like you own it”, to hammer home the point. The songs cut a wide swath, however, and also go in directions that Islands has never tackled, including police brutality and white male privilege (!).
