Happy Hump Day, ARTISTdirectioners. We have teamed up with The Futures League to stream their EP, Don't Be a Drag, which is out now. Like what you hear? Then go buy it!
"Don't Be a Drag" was recorded live, in-studio using almost entirely all analog gear. TFL drummer John Fontana explains, "The EP is the final result of our first few days meeting and working with Gus Seyffert. His studio is a time portal back into the 1960s and '70s. Nothing aside from his laptop is newer than those decades... You feel a little like you're walking into a museum of old recording gear, but you actually get to play with it." The five-song EP is a preview to the band's full-length debut, which is already in the works.
How cool is that? What an experience for TFL.
So it goes without saying that the EP evokes a retro nostalgic feel while pushing forward with a modern rock power. There's also a raw energy that's evident when you see their insane live show.
Go ahead, be a "Drag."
Did you love this EP as much as we did?
