Islands, Bear Mountain

PETE COTTELL
9 pm., Sunday September 22 | $14 advance, $15 day of show.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 
[INDIE POP] As far as output is concerned, Islands was quick to get out from under the shadow of the one-and-done Unicorns. The ebullient twee pop of Nicholas Thorburn’s previous project still lurks in the margins, but it’s hard to imagine any of the tracks from the group’s latest album, Ski Mask, popping up in a Crayola commercial any time soon. Creating proper pop albums is now Thornburn’s main concern, which explains why latter-day efforts manage to feel twice as long and half as fun as the group’s debut, Return to the Sea. Worry not, though: In a live setting, this is nothing a few cocktails can’t remedy.
