Felix and the Future is represented and produced by one. But from what we hear, the one’s mission is grander than the shadows shading the magnificence of the milky-way. Predicated to the questions posed by each song, it is a chapter on chapter of ‘lectures’. And the lectures are succinct mythical advances of thoughts, expositions, determinations, expressed outputs, and un-bearable expectations.
There can be times when flat key mixed, ups and downs – covered in melodramatic musical determinations can be a grind sometimes.
But just like anything worth doing, if there is a focus and a ‘purpose’ (perceived purpose), it can be readily digestible.
And that’s where ‘Vol.2’ stands. Contradictions and mixing of attitudes and soul searching musical mass.
As highlights, ‘Karen’ and ‘A Good Son’ take us on a visionary artist trip, through the eyes of an unknown and unwanted agency (a third person, arms-length nod of recognition to the challenges)- and are delectable. And ‘Albicocco’ takes our hands and just lets go at the middle of the trip – without notice, without reason. But the listener is OK with it. Sonic abuse? No, just part of the story telling.
‘Felix’ describes himself as: “Born on Earth but never quite at home, Felix and the Future chases false idols between the physical and the surreal. The album + music videos document his journey.”
We’ll leave it at that.
But we’ll nod and accept his musical sensibilities and like it; a good stance to have in this weird and sometimes, unfair Universe.
The above video was done in the year ‘3615’, but included in this 2018 album. =D
‘Vol.2’ (dropped February 2, 2018) is seemingly a follow up to ‘Vol.1’ (2016).
