Future Clouds & Radar: Peoria

Future Clouds & Radar
Star Apple Kingdom Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Peoria feels like an EP after the double album self-titled debut from Future Clouds & Radar last year. It's 30 minute running time does a nice job of consolidating the former Cotton Mather frontman Robert Harrison's ideas into this nice indie pop package. The tracks are smart and catchy while Peoria continues with the inserted instrumentation that made their debut special only this time there is no filler, which suits Future Clouds & Radar's style and gives promise that there are still great things ahead for the band!

Key Track: "The Epcot View"

Band With Similar Fire: Matt Pond PA
