Rush in like fools do

They are a rock, they are an island.
The internet may have permanently ruined the financial viability of the music industry, but at least it has made bands like EP Island possible. A home recording project featuring singer/guitarist LL Schultz (guitar/vocals) and Melanie Covey (drums), the duo’s goal is to write and record an EP in a single weekend. The pair then releases the result on the internet.

I recently spoke with Schultz about the origins of the project, as well as the influence of Portico singer Lyn Heinemann, who contributed vocals to the latest EP, Rad’ish. Read the brief interview in the Georgia Straight.

Also check out “Broken Social Smoker,” the EP’s chilly opening track. Combining tribal percussion with chiming guitars and Heinemann’s ghostly harmonies, it’s the perfect soundtrack for a cold winter evening. If it catches your fancy, download the entire EP here.
