The AM`s inviting voice is intoxicating, sensual filling the with the beautiful sounds on this material. AM presents kaleidoscopic array of gorgeous colors(think Keane, Midlake, Jon Brion) and the songs here are carefully
constructed, crafted and complimented by arrangements that fit snug and perfectly, merging analog depth and studio prowess in all the texture here. Overflowing with gentle, whispery songs "Future" is.
"AM`s updated the breezy, Laurel Canyon vibes of his `70s-tinged rock with sounds inspired by the percussiveness of Brazilian samba and the dustiness of old Italian soundtracks, and for the most part, it works: the lush strings on "Darker Days" give it a heightened sense of drama before devolving into reverb-laced hand drum Beck-ian funkiness, and the instrumental "Jorge Benâ" is a groovy ode to its Rio namesake. But the album`s highlight is far and away "It`s Been So Long,â" a Spaghetti Western-ish co-ed duet that calls to mind both Wilco and Sergio Leone in the same melodically whispered breaths. " - New York Metromix.
"The slightly washed out album photo and even the psychedelic font give AM`s intentions away right from the beginning. He combines breezy 70s rock, pop, and even bits of disco with his own modern twist, an approach that may not be completely unique but one he pulls off with style, hitting much more often than missing on the record`s 11 tracks...Future Sons & Daughters is a record that, due to its purposefully low-impact nature, may not grab your attention immediately. Given half a chance, tough, AM proves to be an intelligent musician and a talented songwriter who understands his strengths as well as his limitations and uses them to create something fun, fresh, and quite groovy."- Chewing Gum.
