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 โ€“ even though they shun all manner of web promotion (at last, the anti Artic Monkeys!). Musically theyโ€™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.
