Louis Futon delivers kaleidoscopic debut album, ‘Way Back When’

Louis Futon delivers kaleidoscopic debut album, ‘Way Back When’Louis Futon

A cacophony of trumpets coalesces with the warm notes of a saxophone to pierce the silence on “The Beginning,” an attention-grabbing, aptly titled number that opens Louis Futon’s debut album, Way Back When. Inherently dynamic, Futon has long treated listeners to his forward thinking remixes, to place his own idiosyncratic spins on other artists’ offerings, like James Blake‘s “Retrograde,” and Travis Scott‘s “Wake Up.” Now, Futon channels his creative efforts into an extended, 14-track showing that radiates the bright, buoyant personality characteristic of a Futon single.

Way Back When engages listeners from start to finish in its unpredictability, and the fun that Futon evidently had when engineering the debut project is audible in each song of the album. The bold instrumental components of “The Beginning” are crisp commencers that yield to the twinkling synths and comparatively syrupy pace of the album’s second song, “Surreal.” Delightfully kaleidoscopic in the nature of its cuts, Way Back When dabbles in the vocal-centric on “Rewind,” with the bubbly assistance of Ashe and Armani White. Futon melds playful tones with glitchy arrangement on “Supposed To Be,” to craft a rhythmically oriented joint, accented with DUCKWRTH delivered hip-hop verses. Way Back When traverses distinctive sonic territories across its 14 comprising cuts, to emerge as a highly developed debut project that is duly diverse in its sound, and cohesive.

Louis Futon inches towards album release with cosmically colorful ‘Supposed to Be’

Louis Futon inches towards album release with cosmically colorful ‘Supposed to Be’Louis Futon

Louis Futon recently rendezvoused with LA vocalist DUCKWRTH for one more dose of blissful beat release, “Supposed to Be,” before Futon’s full-length album Way Back When officially arrives.

“Supposed to Be” is found in a familiar vein as its Way Back When predecessors (i.e., “Restless Sea” and “Royal Blood“), with choral-like vocals front and center, propelled by the syrupy BAEGOD. DUCKWRTH, who tapped Futon to produce “HELLO GOD” off the former’s An EXTRA UUGLY Mixtape, wastes no time, enticing the track with his potently playful rhymes. Smacking percussion, a deliberate, punchy beat, and flittering synth emissions make for whimsical production that could be breezily blended into the folds of any downtempo party dynamic.

Way Back When is due in full Feb. 22.
