True story: Future Islandʼs "Seasons (Waiting On You)" is one of the better songs of the year, and jazz fusing trio BADBADNOTGOODʼs III is one of the better albums of the year, but I can't say I ever thought I'd hear the two together.
Fronting the expansive jazzy tableau BBNG created for him, Samuel T. Herring's powerhouse vocals sound even more grandiose and commanding. It honestly makes a strong case for Future Islands ditching their synthesizers on the next go around. And also, how 'bout those Phil Spector-y strums that run up to the chorus there? Really great stuff.
