We've been awaiting eagerly the new Future Islands record for a long time. Pretty much since the last one came out, actually, and certainly since they released the free download of 'Before The Bridge', which is still available here. What you're here for, I guess, is a new download from the new record. OK, you can have it. It's for 'Balance' and can be obtained directly by clicking here. Some might say it is the album's masterpiece. Certainly it's the centrepiece.
On The Water is released through Thrill Jockey on October 10. You can watch the video for 'Before The Bridge' below. Directed by Abe Sanders.
