iTunes Review

Eleven years after its original release, The Unicorns return with a remastered edition of Who Will Cut Our Hair When We’re Gone?, a song collection that has lost none of its lovable weirdness with time. At once goofy and ambitious, the music of band masterminds Nick “Diamonds” Thornburn and Alden “Ginger” Penner ranks among the most inventive outpourings from Montreal’s fertile pop scene. The Unicorns draw upon ‘60s and ‘70s sonic flotsam (especially low-fi synthesizers), matching it with lyrical themes that range from the lurid to the infantile. Horror and sci-fi references color tracks like “Tuff Ghost,” “Jellybones," and “Rocket Ship” (the latter an inspired Daniel Johnston cover). “I Was Born (A Unicorn)”—a theme song of sorts—catches the band at their giddiest. All isn't sunshine and rainbows here, however—there’s a tension simmering under the surface of “Child Star” and “Ready to Die” that’s hard to miss. No matter how shambolic the tracks get, The Unicorns retain their droll wit and knack for ear-snagging melodies. This is indie rock in its most authentic form: precocious, ungainly, and willing to court chaos to achieve greatness.

Amazing band with a great re-release off of an old favorite...

Wowzers!

One of the best albums of the past decade. It's such a shame that The Unicorns broke up after only a few years of making music together. The music on this album demonstrates these boys have talent, and there is no telling just how far they could have gone with their music. Now that they have reunited from their 10 year hiatus, I'm really hoping they'll make the next great album of the 2010s!

Bam!

Best album this side of abbey road!

Biography

Formed: 2000 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Yet another promising Canadian indie rock band, Montreal-via-British Columbia's Unicorns began in the late '90s, when high-school friends Nick (Neil) Diamonds and Alden Ginger began crafting their roundabout, lo-fi, but distinctly catchy music. Cheap keyboards, loud guitars, and real and mechanical drums surround the duo's skewed and often spiritual lyrics, and their live shows can also include films, puppet shows, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
