Future Islands – Seasons Change (Waiting on You) (2014)

It dawned on me just there I’ve listened to far too much Brian Eno-esque ambient soundscapes for months on end now, music with a distinct lack of pulse, nourishing for the soul of course but in my advancing age, it’s nice to remind myself that I am alive and still feel the quickening of my blood, the surging of ones heart, the raising of ones spirit triggered by something (or someone) sublime. Here is something which sounds urgent yet reflective, wide open but reigned tight, wise yet innocent, sensitive and stoic, emotional but steady in time, bracingly direct, sensuous, compelling, soul in tandem with body.
