For the first time since 2013, Spain electro pop trio Furguson have readied a brand new full length, a significant departure from the heavier guitar-oriented effort The Leap Year. Aleix, Eduard and Joan have always leaned towards off-kilter studio trickery and a cohesive melding of synths and guitars, but their new album Today Can Flourish features a much more dance-oriented brand of pop. Furguson’s experimental instincts are still very much intact, though. The synths bend, quiver and splash out of the speakers with a refreshing edge. This isn’t dance music that you can ignore. Fans of Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours and Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion will find plenty to love on this one.
La Castanya has a limited amount of vinyl on coke bottle green after the ‘buy’ link. Check out two of the tracks below.
