Future Shuttle on Visitation Rites/ Pitchfork


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.

Words: Emilie Friedlander

Water’s Edge EP is out this year on the Holy Moutain-affiliated Intercoastal Artists. 2-song 12″ vinyl accompanied by 6-song download of the full EP
