Album Review
Telepathic Juan
Reviewed 2019-06-19 
The World Is A Mess is the latest EP by New York quartet Future Punx. Early 1980s New York post punk energy meets 21st century post-wave. Exciting and intricate.

Something else from the press release:
Three years after their last release, Future Punx return with The World Is A Mess EP, recorded with Andrew Chugg (Pop. 1280, Pill, Crinkles) and set for release from Modern Sky USA, with a special edition through their own imprint, Dull Tools. Starkly juxtaposed with the sci-fi fantasies of their earlier output, these songs are grounded firmly in the present political moment. While they still believe in the uniting power of getting down on the dance floor or ripping out a Robert Fripp style guitar solo, their lyrics now focus on acknowledging and battling white supremacy (“Society Implies”) or toxic masculinity (“F Boys”), before closing with a perfectly fitting cover of X’s “The World’s A Mess, It’s In My Kiss.”

RIYL: Devo, Pow!, Shopping, Units and Priests.

FCC CLEAN!
Recommended Tracks:4, 6, 1, 5, 3, 2

1. (2:38) **Want to Be Wanted – Medium-up tempo. Part art punk, part post wave. Devo would be proud.
2. (1:32)*Do It Again – Fast tempo. Classic post punk sound here. Nice guitars.
3. (2:57)**Society Implies – Medium-up tempo. Part art punk, part post-wave part II. Devo would also be proud of this one.
4. (3:39)***F Boys – Medium-up tempo. Cool fast electro punker. Sounds like a single.
5. (3:52)**Debunk Yourself – Fast tempo. Classic post punk sound here part II. Great energy. Solid.
6. (4:26)**The World's a Mess, It's in my Kiss – Fast tempo. Exciting cover of the X track. Post punk forever.
