The future has finally (almost) come. On April 14, John MacLean (formerly of Providence's electro-punk Six Finger Satellite and currently of The Juan MacLean) will drop his sophomore album, The Future Will Come
and club kids everywhere will shout a collective, "It's about time!"
It's been four years since New York-based MacLean released Less Than Human,
but since then he's been keeping busy
spinning at DFA events and churning out remixes. The album, which MacLean has described
as "a disco inflected Human League sounding record," features "Happy Houses" vocalist/LCD Soundsystem cohort Nancy Whang and DFA labelmates Gerry Fuchs (formerly of !!!), Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel (Holy Ghost!).
Also on your radar, European true believers: MacLean will spend a few days on a spinning his way through Portugal and Spain.
