2009 release. Re-released following a stunning performance on Letterman and a new album on 4AD. Limited, clear vinyl. Future Islands are a post-wave dance band from North Carolina -- now residing in Baltimore. Future Islands play a terse yet passionate music wrought from a stripped-back palette. Gerrit Welmers' cartwheeling synthesizer melodies tumble across the austere wilderness of William Cashion's post-punk bass pulse, driven ever forward by Eric Murillo's ecstatic feel for rhythm. Perhaps the most striking aspect of the band's sound, however, takes shape in the form of Sam Herring's distinctive guttural vocal, delivered as Glen Danzig if he ever found himself in a Shakespearean tragedy.
