Frenetic, multi-drummer explosion of skewed guitars, structured dissonance and compelling unpredictability, Islet are less than a handful of gigs old but have already landed an impressive NME Radar feature – even though they shun all manner of web promotion (at last, the anti Artic Monkeys!). Musically they’re like the Bordeoms inviting Steve Reich, Fugazi, Kurt Weill and John Zorn for dinner. Then eating them.

Hope they don’t mind me posting some stuff – doubt they’ll find out mind.
