Shrinking Islands – The Slow-Moving Aftermath

February 12, 2009

The Shrinking Islands put out one of my favorite local albums of 2006, called “In the Black Carpet,” and so I was delighted to hear a newly-released track from the band on this afternoon’s edition of WZBC’s Flyweight, and even more delighted when the entry from Ravioli’s playlist plus a quick Google search led me to an Inman Street Records page where the entire EP can be downloaded for free! “The Slow-Moving Aftermath” includes three tracks that are as good if not better than the very fine material on the previous full-length. And while this post from the band’s Myspace page compares their sound to that of Guided By Voices and the Feelies, I also hear echoes of REM’s early Chronic Town, still my favorite by them. Highly recommended!
