Kevin Ker (vocals, guitar) and Justin Dillon (drums, percussion) are Future History, a Toronto based psychedelic folk shoegaze duo. Their album Loss:/self is like a vortex. Once you get in, it's difficult to get out.
These guys are all about texture and layers, without suffocating the overall sound. Dense yet light, Future History have internalized dozens of others bands, and yet sound like no one else. This album demands the listener's undivided attention. Interspersed with short left-field electronic robot voiced tidbits, they wave a musical tapestry that is ear-dazzling.
Loss:/self is a self-released album. Buy it from the band's website.
