Year Future - Year Future ep

Label: Gold Standard Laboratories
Year: 2004

Here's a quick post, for a quick record.
Since most people (and by "people" I mean "people named 'me'") seemed to love The VSS, and follow Sonny Kay from project to project, I thought we (and by "we", I mean "we named 'me'") would enjoy a little taste of Year Future. 
Where The VSS took a more grating approach to their post-hardcore  work-outs, and relied on some piercing keyboards to spice up their sound, Year Future look back to the first wave of post-punk and Goth for inspiration. And while that might not sound too appealing to some (and by "some" I mean "some people named 'me'"), this actually works really well. If you like Bauhaus, but would only admit it to get in your girlfriend's pants, then this one is for you. If you like Alien Sex Fiend, but only would admit that to get into...uh...maybe some dude's pants...then you will like this. Wiry, trebley guitars over rumbling rhythms, with Sonny Kay's unmistakable vocals over the whole mess.
And least you think this is merely a Sonny Kay vanity project (or post), I will tell you that the other members of the group are no joke, Rockey Crane (Dead and Gone, Creeps On Candy), Sam Ott (The Fucking Angels), Jim Anderson (The Pattern, Blackfork, Talk Is Poison). Real talk ya'll. 
Highly recommended.
