1. islands are amazing live, without a doubt. 2. my five favourite bands are as follows, in no particular order : the shins, islands (and all of nick thorburn's 'side projects' / the unicorns), someone still loves you boris yeltsin, jens lekman, and YACHT. 3. picking five bands was probably the hardest thing ive done today.
No, haha, they're great. I love the album Daisies of the Galaxy... but pretty much everything I've heard from E, except maybe Beautiful Freak, is awesome. I also just read his memoir, so I'm on a new Eels kick right now, I guess.
