The 405

This isn't an album that will catapult Islet into the consciousness of millions, but it won't be easily forgotten by those who let curiosity get the better of them.


Nearly every song here has a melodic sensibility that helps to explain why Islet have accrued an audience, without searching too hard for one.

Drowned in Sound

Despite admirable efforts to branch out style-wise, you suspect Side B could lose ten minutes without major casualties, suggesting this might best have been sliced down to EP length.

Purchasing Illuminated People from Amazon helps support Album of the Year.
