Future Islands: Balance

(from On the Water)

Baltimore’s next breakout act? Future Islands’ next album, “On the Water,” hits next week, and with a winning formula of dramatic synths, deep bass and the totally-in-your-face vocals of Samuel Herring (who comes off like Jack Black meets Meatloaf, in a good way), they have a compelling formula already in the mix. Their last album, “In Evening Air,” amped up the dynamics, setting the stage for “Balance,” which most certainly has a danceable beat, but is far more cerebral than your normal indie dance night fare. Diamond Rings fans, give these guys a shot.

For the late-night crowd, a little Dan Deacon. This is actually one of our favorite songs, and the guy who made the video, Jimmy Joe Roche, has a knack for in-your-face visuals and noises. Currently, Deacon, who is awesome, is working with (of all people) Francis Ford Coppola on launching his new movie, “Twixt.” Deacon wrote original music and also helped with some interactive elements. The result? Now we have our Kevin Bacon link between Wham City and Val Kilmer.
