I’ve become obsessed with the tag entitled “future.” The word just grabs my attention. Why does this particular artist, PR firm, record label, etc. believe their music is the sounds from an approaching, distant time? What does it even resemble when it hits my ears?
So, needless to say, I’ve been having some fun exploring this particular tag on many different sites/networks. Where are we heading in music, what new technologies or artists/styles will affect the outcome? Remember, no one predicted dubstep…and that’s been a pretty exciting genre that’s made its way to the mainstream.
Take a dip into what others feel as “future” sounds and explore some artists and genres you may have never taken a listen to otherwise.
First up is Inner Space Man, an electronic artist who manages to blend folk and digital absolutely seamlessly. I especially love the layering of the acoustic guitar and electronic tones in his album, Galapagos. I can’t even tell you what my favorite track is. Perhaps it’s “Ships Passing” or “Semaphore?” I don’t know, upon second listen I’m now really into the song “Two Bells.” It’s all so damn good, and totally worth clicking that download link.
