The Unicorns

Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? (Alien 8)
by Evan Solochek

Fans of cute, nerdy, experimental low-fi indie-pop music will love this Montreal threesome. The Unicorns offer up unusual songs with a playful and innocent undertone. They magically blend completely irregular song structure with catchy melodies, much akin to The Flaming Lips. It might be necessary for you to listen through the album a few times before you're fully able to appreciate what The Unicorns are doing, but your time will not have been wasted. Utilizing insanely diverse instruments - cellos, toy keyboards, fiddles, recorders, and accordions, to name a few - this album is a thousand different moods compressed into just over 40 minutes. From the twang of "I Was a Born (a Unicorn)" to the bubbly synth-driven "Jellybones," The Unicorns are surprisingly apt at blending eclectic sounds without making the listener confused. Their secret is that all their songs all built on the foundation of lighthearted pop music. Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone? is pop music that has completely abandoned all rules of pop music, and the outcome is incredible.
