Albino Father = Portugal. The Man + The Futurists
This Futurists side project is, unsurprisingly, one of the better sounding, current local projects. With bluesy folk-guitar riffs, the whole EP tends to ramble on in the least boring way possible. This EP was a great precursor to their full-length, Age, which came out a little more recently. I only have two complaints: The devil imagery in blues-inspired music may be classic, but it is getting pretty fucking contrived, and at times, Matt Hoenes sounds a little bit like Tim Kasher (rough and whiney). Even with those complaints, it is still one of my favorite local releases of the year. If you like their full length, it is definitely worth a listen.
