Favourite Song on Album:


Listen to This Album When You’re:

You’re feeling a little more funky than Postal Service, but not as funky as James Brown.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

It follows their bands persona really well, it’s really beautiful looking and original.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Oh you know I do, son.

Final Thoughts:

Future Islands continues to release amazing albums, this is my favourite of 2017 thus far (we’ll see if that changes). Samuel T. Herring’s vocals keep me wanting more and the funky instrumentals are a delicious treat.
