Louis Futon Finds his Best Sound Yet on New Album, ‘Couchsurfing’

|||, , , ,

2021 is Louis Futon’s year. We’ve been long-time fans of the now LA-based producer, and recently he has undeniably taken his sound to the next level. Just two and half months ago, Louis announced his new album, Couchsurfing, with the release of the cheeky, San Diego-sprung groove, “Ron Burgundy,” followed by the tough Armani White featured flow of “Re-up” and the tripped-out bass wave of “Amoeba.” Today, we get the project in full and we are very excited to announce we are seeing Louis Futon in his best form to date.

This offering provides a staggering 18-tracks, and while that might seem like a lofty listening, it truly feels like it flies by in an instant. From start to finish, richly orchestrated melodies combine bright brass lines and future-leaning production through a wide variety of musical themes. “Shogun” wraps us in a soprano sax-led synth jazz jam while “Tie Dye” weaves a kaleidoscopic swath of future dub-kissed sounds for listeners to sink in to. “Ms. Intentions” gives us three and a half minutes of seductively digitized R&B heat while “This Beautiful World” provides the cathartically epic indie-dance bow on top to close the project out.

One might think that we’d know what to expect from Louis after all this time, but the man continues to blow us away. Stream what just might be the indie dance album of the year, Couchsurfing, by Louis Futon below. Enjoy!
