Check Out FutureKind's Release Party Friday

By Martin Cizmar

We haven’t had a chance to do a formal review of FutureKind’s new disc, Surround, here, but thought we’d mention their CD release party this Friday at Last Exit since they’ve got a great sound.

Recalling Portishead and other downtempo electronic acts, FutureKind’s singer Thalia Williams has a lovely, understated voice that melds well with the group’s dreamy soundscapes, as you can hear on “Love Can Wait.” “Hideaway” has a more aggressive sound driven by an echoing guitar and traditional drums. “Something Real” is reminiscent of Air, simultaneously sounding futuristic and organic.

FutureKind’s CD release show will also feature DJ Seduce, Human Mirror, Talk Fiction, and Random Karma. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. with your headliners scheduled to take stage at 11 p.m. Tickets are $5.

Give it a listen here.
