FUTURE PHONES: Self-titled: 7″

Goddamn, some sweet damage going on here. Couple the yowls and howls of the Tyrades with the more restrained, bouncy approach of the Estranged or maybe Wire and that’s what you’re looking at with Future Phones. It’s plodding while also danceable, catchy while still coming across as mean as shit. Some pretty neat work, though I don’t have a clue what they’re bellowing about. Includes a cute little 3” CD-R of the songs on the 7”, too. Come and play Portland sometime.
