Nicholas Thorburn of the Unicorns fame is a busy man. This month alone he delivered two full-length albums with his band Islands: Should I Remain Here at Sea? and Taste. The former is being pegged as the straight-up rock sequel to the band's 2006 debut, Return to the Sea, while the latter takes a more electronic, dance-pop approach. It's a mish-mash only the shifty Thorburn could pull off.
