This reviewer has fun searching around for new music or new types of music that I have not really paid attention to or may have never heard before. While scanning one of my favourite sites in an attempt to discover something that I had never really heard before, the music of Future Cat, Mike Coasey (vocals & lyrics) and Anthony Pepe (guitars & programming) and their collection “Tomorrow” was discovered. The members of Future Cat describe their music as alternative electronic. So let us dig in and see what we have found.
In listening to the tracks given to us by this duo you get the feeling that they got wrapped in the technology and production in making “Tomorrow”. There are a few instances where the percussion programming, provided by Anthony Pepe, does not keep the same beat as the song itself such as “Caution”, “Cellar Door” and “An Arms Length Away From Disaster”.
The vocalist, Mike Coasey, becomes a victim of what seems to be over singing as in “Nascent State” and “The Ghost in the Hall”. The listener gets the feeling that this is done to convey the emotions that are in each word. Unfortunately this does not work each time.
There are some impressive moments in this recording where it comes together for this duo. The songs “Assassin” and “The Uninvited” are good examples of this.
What this reviewer did keep in mind through all of this was that the music that is given to us is filled with potential for future releases in this genre. Future Cat’s “Tomorrow” does exhibit a lot of potential for the future for these artists and should be used as a stepping stone for future releases. With that in mind, go and listen to this and other releases that exist for this artist and decide for you.
