Last summer, I was waiting for the bus outside of Amoeba… it was hot… the doors were open and I was vacillating between staying to watch Future Islands or just getting the bus and listening to them at home. I could see Sam Herring from the street, one hand on the mic, the other behind his back, sweaty, red-faced in an all white ensemble. His guttural declarations reaching out to the street as he started singing ‘In The Fall’ a song that, in its recorded version, features Katrina Ford (Celebration)…I got home late that night.
I often hit the back button Future Islands tracks and “The Ink Well” is no different. This 7″ split with N.C. natives Lonnie Walker does not disappoint. Two totally different sound spectrums on an itty-bitty EP.

This week STRFKR began streaming Reptilians on Soundcloud to make up for a delay in the vinyl production. I’m not mad about it. At all.
That’s all for now…
