Future Islands - "Seasons (Waiting on You)"

Biography

On March 25, Future Islands are set to release ‘Singles,’ their debut album for 4AD and their boldest and most immediate work to date. The Baltimore trio known for their “cathartic” (NPR) energy consists of enigmatic frontman Samuel T. Herring, bassist/guitarist William Cashion and keyboardist/guitarist/ programmer Gerrit Welmers.

Editorial Reviews

In Evening Air is the debut full length from Future Islands on Thrill Jockey. This follows up the limited 12'' EP In The Fall (released on April 6th). In Evening Air marks the first full-length release from Future Islands since moving to Baltimore, and also their first full-length release as a focused three piece. However, there's no lack of spirit in this paring down. More so, there's a greater intensity and eye to detail than we have yet witnessed from the group. These changes are felt and heard. In Evening Air takes us and swirls us around those feelings of growing outside of one's city and one's self. It moves through gripping loss and the search for peace from a heavy head, with an ease and understanding where there was none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movement November 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album seems hard on the ears at first: the voice is something like a black womanized version of frank black + tom waits (which honestly sounds better with every listen.) You'll probably get hooked on the initial guitar rhythm of "vireo's eye" which is really quite a good song (though to be honest there may be better songs on the album, such as "long flight" for instance.) But really, please get this album (any way you can) because it's worth it. The sound work is really well done, instrumentation has great diversity of what some would call 'indi-electro-pop' but to me it just sounds like originality. The album does have a strange cohesion, mostly in just how groovin these tunes can be. Tempo changes will make some skip to the tracks they prefer, but by the time I listened to this album on loop for about a couple hours, I ended up giving a positive rating for 7 out of the albums' 9 tracks, not because all are vibrantly-poppy, but because they are 7 really listenable and enjoyable songs. I found the simplicity of some of the lyrics to be my favorite parts, as well as the slightly off-kilter gramatical phrasing of words (reminiscent a little of weezer blue album style of songwriting)
Please, please get this album. Definitely a fine album for the decade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Future is the Time to Think About the Past January 25, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I am a bit stunned that, in the currently saturated music media, this record didn't get more attention. I'm not normally a great fan of the Thrill Jockey label because many of its flagship bands' concentration on texture comes at the expense of songcraft, to the point that the songs become a bit bland and samey (think The Sea and Cake). But this stuff is totally different. I'd file this band's sound between Crystal Castles and Wild Nothing; it's got a chaos to it, a weird noise that reminds me of the former group but a focus on texture and ambiance that reminds me of the latter. So it's electro, and it probably sounds really great on drugs, but I'm not sure it's going to light up the dance floors as much as Crystal Castles might.

What really makes this LP even more original, though, is the vocals. They remind me of those of fellow Baltimorons Wilderness, a sort of throaty, unhinged scraping from the lead singer. I would also compare the vocals to those of The Twilight Sad, even if the accent isn't Scottish but some strange lampooning of a European accent. I mean, I would guess that the frothing-at-the-mouth singing style on "Tin Man" is a mean-spirited parody of something, but I don't know what. Who knows what he's talking about, even though you can make out the lyrics pretty clearly. I'm into it, though. I'm into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked! October 4, 2011
By Dagny
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I recently heard "Vireo's Eye" and just had to have it! Because it's so good I didn't mind buying the whole album to get it. What I came away with is a diverse collection of pieces - all different moods and pulses. I love all but one of them. And I still LIKE that one! What a find! I can't get "Tin Man" out of my head! ... and I don't want to... ! These tunes are haunting and moving. I highly recommend it.

A theatrical blend of powerful lyrics and 80's esque electro vibe. Seen these guys live twice and they never dissapoint.
