Future One Do We Want One other Psycho?
Future One, Peekskill musician Paul J Magliari’s one-man challenge, returns to observe up 2021’s wonderful Misplaced Freeway with Do We Want One other Psycho? The title observe has a sly, clean, Duran Duran-meets-Eels appeal: “Who’s accountable? Was all of it true?” Paul wonders, earlier than a unusual, climbing scale and type of Leonard Cohen-by-way-of-post-Roger Waters-Pink Floyd instrumental passage takes over. All through the album, slice-of-life lyrics pair with self-aware snark and an aesthetic akin to Paul McCartney or early Elvis Costello, benefiting from melody, whimsy, and tasteful restraint. It isn’t straightforward to jot down multifaceted tunes which are kinetic, catchy, and intelligent, however Magliari nails it; Bizou and Gothic Tropic come to thoughts as different present artists who likewise don’t tip their hand whereas blowing minds. “Maintain Me, Maintain You” comes off just like the Beatles writing a mid-period Conflict track, only a pure pleasure.
