Future Self by The Globes (2011)
Kind of Like: Deerhunter, Trail of Dead, Deathcab
Genres: Indie, Rock, Experimental
I saw these guys open for Tera Melos and Maps and Atlases in Toledo last year. And another time before that possibly opening for Fang Island, but I'm not positive. Either way, I was impressed by their live performance and their music, but they had yet to release an LP. Well, here it is, and it is a really strong debut.
"‘Future Self’ is unafraid of movement, not just within a song but throughout an entire album. It is done effectively enough to never allow Bowlegs to be deterred by its sporadic fluctuations. Each song grows, mutates and blossoms into a new minor chord or mood swing that is echoed in the compelling voice of Erik Walters. The final product is captivatingly experimental and purposeful music."
