FUTURE NOW PAST, A: Self-titled: CD

Three piece from Georgia who have a sound rooted in classic rock. There is a Stones cover and “Fire in the Sky” has a definite Hendrix feel. When the band veers off this road is where it gets interesting. “I Know Where You Are” features a blues-based shuffle with some organ textures creating a cool vibe. “In the Red” bounces along and shows what the band can do. If you were ever wondering when is someone going to write a song about Alger Hiss, your prayers have been answered. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, afuturenowpast.bandcamp.com)
