FUTURE TRENDS "Sometimes Things Don't Match Up" MP3


Future Trends

Andrew Clark is a designer.  Not only of sharp brochures, websites, ads and newsletters but also of irresistible electro dream pop.  Self-recording songs while going to school is tough enough.  But producing high quality songs is even tougher.  A new track titled “Sometimes Things Don’t Match Up” by the Ohioan going by the moniker of Future Trends continues his efforts into completing his album Palace of Dust. Sounding between notable bands such as The Notwist, OMD and DNTEL, the track is slightly more aggressive than his previous tracks such as “Eyes From Heaven.”  If the 80s defined a time when all was obsessed with the future, then Future Trends is bringing the future back.

WOXY.com Online Radio Station Off The Air

WOXY

Well, “The Future of Rock And Roll” WOXY.com went off the air today reported by USA Today. On the front page WOXY states that:

WOXY Listeners, Fans and Friends…

Due to current economic realities and the lack of ongoing funding for WOXY’s operations, we’ve been forced to suspend our live broadcasts as of March 23rd. We’re continuing to explore options to keep The Future of Rock and Roll alive. For business inquiries, please contact Bryan Jay (bryan@woxy.com) or John at Future Sounds (john@futuresounds.com).

Thanks for your years of dedicated support.

– MikeShivJoePaigeBrian and Bryan Jay

It’s a sad day when even the internet is not able to help support one of the most heard and listened to online radio stations.  Having been one of the first FM stations to broadcasting solely through internet radio and having supported numerous indie rock and self-released artists for years, losing a patron who supported independent music is a big loss.  Hopefully even though this economic recession is a hard hurdle to leap over, WOXY.com will be able to find a way to rise above the ashes.

Watch a documentary by Zachary Herche about the station:

MGMT Stream of Congratulations on NPR

MGMT

There’s been a lot of hoopla over MGMT’s follow-up to their mega-hit Oracular Spectacular.  After the leak of “Flash Delirium” opinions borderlined on “genius new direction” to “absolute shit.”  In my opinion the track was rather weak and has been done by numerous elephant6 bands of the past (Of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, Apples In Stereo, etc) and even The Unicorns and their predecessors Islands. But due to their fame from singles “Time To Pretend,” “Kids” and “Electric Feel” the noob “fans” found the song to be something “interesting.”

But true enough, I admit that my “hater” personality was slightly buffered having listened to their new album Congratulations on NPR..  Even though I still feel that the album isn’t a “breakthrough” or “genius” album – it may have been smarter for the duo to explore their psychedelic addiction rather than trying to spur out pop hit after pop hit.  Having been produced by Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3 really brought out their song writing abilities.  It’s a deeper listen for those obsessed with their previous singles, but in the long run may be an album that an older more mature audience may sink into during their Sundays.  Critics may actually raise a brow as well.

Listen to the album on NPR.
