If you’re in NY this weekend, and feel like seeing some music, check out Future Islands at Silent Barn in Ridgewood, Queens tomorrow (Saturday, 6/12) with Sensual Harassment and Lower Dens. I’ve been a fan of Future Islands for some time and made a note on the blog back in April to check out the new album In the Evening Air.

Aside from the song I posted last time, “Tin Man“, there are a slew of others that are a perfect blend of swaggering indie rock and the more proggy minimal psych-rock that Thrill Jockey is known for. See also “In the Fall.” This painting below, inspired by “Tin Man” is fantastic:

Enough gushing. You can find more tour dates here. Stay tuned for an interview with the band!
