Listen: Futuroscope – Hum

artworks-000079707249-zfh9r1-t500x500

Humming away into a world of their own, Futuroscope is more than just a brief hum. Their music is somewhere between krautrock and psychedelic rock. With their debut-album “Hum“, a low-keyed approach is spun into an eternity through psychedelic rock’n’roll and outdrawn but loud krautrock. The band itself is made up by Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy (Pneu, Papare), Julien Nicolaï (The Finkelnauts) and the guest-star Chacha Charasse (Boogers) – with everyone descending from France. Albeit some of their tracks might not be that much of a deal to listen to, tracks like “Moon” bring out the joyous moments that are hidden from plain earshot. To complete psychedelic ballads like “Warm Walking Day” which make you feel like you’re out of water, walking astray in the desert, with heatwaves bruising your already sweaty self. I like how the rhythm of the drum make you off-bound to the general feeling of the songs, as uncanny melodies are taking place as the main feature. Following throughout like a line in the sand is a rather ritualistic experience which takes a hold of you when you listen to it. There’s a certain weirdness attached to it. This album was released by Monofonus Press the 4th of June, on cassette. Listen to a snipper from a track from the album, down below. You can buy the physical cassette over here.
