New Mellow Jam from Islands

After the release of the Human Highway record, featuring Nic from Islands, I truly expected a lot more of a mellow approach to singwriting.  But, then Nic went out and threw Vapours at us. It’s not that I minded, but I was looking forward to a more contemplative side of the man, which might be what we’re getting when Islands release A Sleep and A Forgetting on February 14th via Anti- Records.  He seems calm here, willing to lay down a great harmony to build the song around.  He’s great when he’s spastic, but this is an interesting touch on an ever-changing career.
