Among the artists I’ve recently come across and been obsessing over is Future Islands. Future Islands came to my attention thanks to Jess‘s recommendation. I owe her because this Baltimore group is something that I wouldn’t have gone out of my way to listen to but it’s something that I have a great affinity for now.
I don’t know if I should admit this, but sometimes I daydream where those daydreams are playing out scenes like they would be played out in a movie. It’s soundtracking life in some sense (a very real sense when the daydreams are vivid or merge with points of minutiae from reality). Just listening to Where I Found You sends me into a movie sequence of a Zach Braff film and that’s the best way I can describe why I like it so much.
It’s on the album On The Water, which is out now. Go get it. I hope you like.
