Many don’t know this, but there are actually some really incredible sounds coming out of Baltimore right now, which is why we were pretty stoked to get a new track from one of BMore's leading bands, Future Islands.
Their new song, "Before the Bridge" is the A-Side from their forthcoming 7" single set to drop July 19 (via Thrill Jockey Records) and it stars the hunting post-wave vocals of Samuel T. Herring, who's got a voice that both frightens and excites us at the same time. Top that voice off with a retro disco-esque produced track and you have a song so good , you’ll be digging in the digital crates looking for any and everything you may have missed from these guys. (Hint: Start with 2010's uber awesome In Evening Air or the deliriusly good "Little Dreamer" featuring Beach House's Victoria Legrand from 2009).
