    This Brooklyn-by-way-of-Chicago trio practice an avant branching out of punk-cum-electro that they've described as "ghost punk." And while FUTURE isn't conventionally haunting, its unpredictable glitches and arhythmic tendencies, particularly when buoyed by Anna Barie's dissonant yelps, have a way of staying in your subconscious. Like their peers in Mahjongg and Gang Gang Dance, Powers create atmosphere out of repetitive and often noisy ambience, relying on a sort of recklessly postmodern tribalism. And their tactics are particularly effective on droners like "Light After Sound," which evokes a creepily lo-fi take on Massive Attack with all the lounge-y bombast stripped away.

  • Critic Reviews
    Spin (p.82) - "[A] thrilling, hyperpercussive collection of laptop ditties mixes so cleverly that they'll sound great ticking through earbuds..."
    Alternative Press (p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "ALL ABOARD FUTURE -- for all its dystopian doom -- somehow shakes out as the first truly modern punk record of 2009."
    CMJ - "These Are Powers look to the future for answers by riding the thick sound of back beats and sampled space fuzz."
