Future Clouds and Radar to release new effort

Austin-based Future Clouds and Radar, the eclectic art-pop ensemble headed by Robert Harrison, released their ambitious self-titled double-disc debut last year. A growing critical consensus says the album ranks among 2007’s best. Harp Magazine named Future Clouds and Radar “Debut Artist of the Year” and called the release fourth best record of overall.

It seems musical vision continues to emanate from the group who is set to release its sophomore recording, Peoria, on November 4th, 2008. Where the first album showed Harrison as the central figure in a large musical cast, Future Clouds and Radar’s latest offering finds the core band focusing their kaleidoscopic vision into a single cinematic narrative about the illusory nature of mortality. Throughout, Harrison stays true to his genre-hopping eclecticism, leading the journey through a maze of fuzz-box vocals and ethereal keys.
