CORRIDORS

FUTURE SHUTTLE

En is the duo of San Francisco based multi-instrumentalists Maxwell August Croy and James Devane, and “The Absent Coast ” is their debut collection of recordings. The pair utilize a wide range of instrumentation – koto, guitar, vocals, rhodes, melodica, and piano, among other devices – which is processed and refined into rich walls of reverberant bliss . With its hazy atmospherics, microtonal drones and plaintive tones, the album evokes the type of unplaceable nostalgia that accompanies the imaginary landscapes of distant memory. A diverse and carefully considered document, “The Absent Coast ” is all soaring peaks, shadowed valleys and expansive plains. Edition of 300 LP ‘s.

Byron Westbrook (b. 1977) is an artist working with the dynamic quality of physical space using multi-channel sound, images, and objects.

Last time I saw Brooklyn electronic duo Future Shuttle perform live — at Piano’s on the Lower East Side, accompanied by flute player Lizzie Harper, who now joins them for most of their performances — I remember feeling the same way I once felt when I was lucky enough to receive a foot massage from a friend: shocked by a sudden apprehension of my inner exhaustion, then shocked by all the emotions that start to well up when you let your guard down without knowing it. With their new Water’s Edge EP, out this year on Kip Uhlhorn’s new Intercoastal Artists imprint and produced by Sam Haar of Blondes, we discover their mile-long pillow-scapes in higher resolution, revealing an attention to texture and dynamic variation that can only come from losing track of time inside the studio, trapped inside your own spell.
