FUTURE STORMS: Every Fucking Verse Sounds a Lot like Giving Up: CS EP Not Coming Home: CS EP

These two tapes came to me tied up with a rubber band so it makes sense to tie these together in this review. Recorded over back-to-back summers, this two-piece of bass and drums has a full sound for just two dudes. “Enabler” sloshes around with reckless abandon to start off the proceedings. I haven’t seen any video of this band but I’m envisioning them barely keeping it together on stage (in a good way). The second release from last year has a song called “I Hope You’re Doing Terrible.” I know deep down they don’t mean it. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, futurestorms.bandcamp.com)
