    Just so everyone is on the same page with song titles: This Side is "What We Have To Have". That Side is "Army Now".

      An essential piece of work, The Sound Of Futurism is a record that perfectly blends the first steps of modern synthpunk with abstract noise, with a deep, deep production value.

      On side A, Army Now, this dizzy, fuzzy, mixed hymn to war, blows up in a burst of conflicting synths and crunchy guitars. The vocal delievery is delicious, complementing the music perfectly, being as gritty and film-noir as possible.

      On side B, Futurisk unveil what may be their most forgotten piece of work, the bittersweet What We Have To Have. Starting with a squarish, happy synth, the melody soon drown into more somber tones and finally reveal a hint of... ehm, "musical cynism", if you know what I mean.

      And that's where it ends. After searching this vynil for... oh, well, way too long to remember, I was kind of disappointed that it barely lasted 7 minutes. But in retrospective, these 7 minutes of music were amongst the best ones I've ever experienced.

      A truly visionary record.
