The Unicorns, with Rosa and I Love You But I've Chosen Darkness

Monday, March 15

What the world needs now is a whimsical pop band with songs about death and ghosts. With the release of 2003's Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone, the Unicorns amply fit the bill. Playful and dark, achingly simple and ambitious -- often at the same time -- this Montreal trio (with help from several friends) has hacked a unique pathway through an enchanted musical landscape. Creeping as high as No. 29 on the Canadian charts and touring with fellow Canucks Hot Hot Heat have fitted them for "next big thing" status in our neighbor to the north. The band begins leaving mythical hoofprints on American soil this month. Live shows are said to include puppets, films and the passing out of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Andy Kaufman would be proud, and who knows? Maybe his ghost will be at the show.
