Album Review: Future Times by Plankton Wat

Very Good, Based on 2 Critics

musicOMH.com - 70
Based on rating 3.5

The seconds seem to slide out of reach and the clouds roll and turn a dusky pink as you listen to the measured drone of first track The Burning World from the new release by resurrected psych rockers Plankton Wat, such is its engaging vine like grip. A solo project for Dewey Mahood from the group Eternal Tapestry, after putting out 2017's cassette release Hidden Path on Sky Lantern Records (who have worked with such cosmic delights as Sundays & Cybele, Hills and Kikagaku Moyo), the predominantly instrumental Future Times finds Mahood returning to the warm embrace of Thrill Jockey, who had previously released 2012's Spirits and 2013's superb Drifters Temple. Dylan Carlson's caustic dustbowl guitar vistas on Earth's second phase comeback album Hex: Or Printing In The Infernal Method inform the feral Wild West machinations that get conjured up by Nightfall, a fuzzy melodic hallucination appearing on its desolate horizon of fuzz.

Opinion: Excellent

Future Times by Plankton Wat Plankton Wat's Dewey Mahood has been making sprawling, guitar and synth based music since the early aughts, through Eternal Tapestry (with Jackie-O Motherfucker's Nick Bindeman) and this solo project. With Future Times, he hits a particularly deep groove, exploring dark, echoing sonic spaces with long drones of guitar, eerie tone washes and layers of orchestral instrument sounds. Mahood's practice begins in improvisation, but doesn't end there.
