I thank the stars they’re back. What an immense, amazing tune. Future Islands own so much real estate in my heart that I think I’d disappear if they ever chose to sell.


1. Against Me! – True Trans Soul Rebel

NB: At present, and for the life of me, I can’t find the original version of this song to share. The acoustic version I’ve shared below is brilliant, but the original is one of the catchiest alt/pop songs I’ve heard in a long time. If you can find it, listen to it. Embrace it. Against Me! are on fire.
