"Islands in the Stream" Gets Indie-Rock Seal of Approval

Posted By on Fri, Apr 11, 2008 at 12:22 PM

We’ve always liked “Islands in the Stream,” the 1983 Dolly Parton-Kenny Rogers duet written, produced, and backed by the Bee Gees. Hipsters can like it now too, now that indie darling Feist and fellow Canadians the Constantines have recorded a cover version. Too bad they slow the whole thing down to a lethargic pace that strips away the original’s bubbly fun. Indie-rockers – what are you gonna do with them? --Michael Gallucci
