Future Islands – Seasons (Waiting On You)

I downloaded several (if not more) albums this week, because on reflection my iPod needed an injection of perfection.
I’m not convinced that it got it, but there’s some decent stuff there anyway.

Some of it is this:

Which is growing on me, as 80’s revival synthpop is wont to do.
Rodeo-themed videos less so, but you can’t have everything.
The album is confusingly called Singles and – by first impressions anyway – gives you much more of the same.

Add some Cleveland indie rock, some Finnish power metal (yes, really), some dodgy English pub punk and a bit of Elbow, and you’ve got some kind of view into my twisted musical mind.

Get out while you still can.

  1. I lasted about 3 tracks with the new Elbow album. Just don’t get them.
    Enjoying “If You Wait by London Grammar”. Nice trip hop vibe to it.
    What “dodgy English pub punk” did you get?

  2. Darth > Yes. London Grammar is good – some nice remixes out there as well. Agree a bit on Elbow too – a little experimental. They’ve moved on and I’m not hugely sure it’s in the right direction. I’ll give it some time though.
    Finnish power rock is Sonata Arctica, which is either utterly brilliant or bizarrely hilarious.
    Dodgy English pub punk is Steel Panther. It’s filthy.
