Out now from Versicolor is Gabriel Mintz - Future Wars, a slow burner ideal for dark and stoned, whiskey soaked, summer nights. On the surface, presenting itself as a warm pop record, Future Wars is unmistakably anchored in more threatening shadows – a beautifully realized reflection of a modern reality that we can all relate to. Like a heavily worn cassette copy of Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours that has been left out in the sun for too long, dark psychedelic twanged guitars drift and melt in an out of the mix, and superficially simplistic lyrics give way to a much larger, darker, and more suspicious narrative. Gabe has been building up steam straddling the lines of both the traditional Northwest folk and more “out” experimental scenes for years, never easily shoe-horned into one or the other. With Future Wars, he finds his true home – a sweet spot in between that’s truly his own.
Future Wars is now available from Versicolor, on both GREEN vinyl and CD. Vinyl copies are limited to 500 and are housed in silk-screened, hand-numbered jackets. Order your copy now from LightInTheAttic.net!
