Austin based experimental artist Future Museums makes a blissful Holodeck Records debut with his cassette Rosewater Ceremony out 02/02/18. Future Museums is the long running project of multi-instrumentalist Neil Lord (member of Thousand Foot Whale Claw, Single Lash), and on this album he expands the scope of his classically hypnotic motifs using warm and familiar New Age tones. Lord’s delicate touch on guitar, synth and drum machine is deeply immersive and satisfying, voicing an authentic aura of truth and identity through sound. Emerging from the studio like an extension of Lord’s thought, Rosewater Ceremony is an omni-conscious and re-centered portrait of Future Museums.

Since 2012, Lord has recorded a prolific catalog of titles under the Future Museums moniker. Much of his work has been in collaboration with a rotating ensemble of various musicians, however Rosewater Ceremony is one of Lord’s many solo endeavors. Future Museums traditionally integrates select themes from vintage kosmische and ambient post-rock to embody a rich and natural essence that is wholly unique. Pulsing analog synth bass and percussion drive the rhythm of Rosewater Ceremony, creating a foundation for Lord’s vaporous pad swells and elegant guitar leads to breathe in and out organically. His attention to mood encourages the relinquishment of the self and relaxes the listener into a tension-free audio cleansing.

Songs like “Natural Pulse” and “Rebirth of Empathy” are isolated islands, sheltered from the unrelenting commotion of the outside world. Lord’s vast and weightless sound design seeks to nurture internal peace and clarity. The song “Low Visibility Clearing” dissolves the mind’s artificial barriers and seamlessly blends the music into one’s own inner dialogue. The graceful compositions on Rosewater Ceremony are precisely crafted to provide seclusion for the landscape within and profound enrichment for the soul.

Carefully balancing minimalism and beauty, Future Museums creates an inspiring sphere of meditative harmony for his Holodeck Records debut.
